Cucumber Peach Sangria | Non Alcoholic Summer Cooler

Think Summer, think Smoothies, CoolersSalads and other quick Summer Meals without hovering over the stove for long time. After Sugarfree Kiwi Basil Smoothie and Hung Curd Masoor-fruity salad, its time for another quick to make yet delicious Drink with Peach. As mentioned in my earlier post of Sugarfree Peach Smoothie, the husband whips up most mocktails with very unique combos ... 

One such innovation is this utterly delicious and simple mocktail inspired by the Spanish drink Sangria. You can choose to make this alcoholic by adding white wine or even vodka. However, we had it virgin, and loved it. 3 simple ingredients for a great mocktail. Simple isnt it ? Sit up and sip this during warm summer evenings while this post goes to BM#41 under Summer Specials.

Prep time : 10 mins, no cook. Serves : 3



Ingredients:

  • Peach Juice Concentrate - 1 cup
  • Peeled and diced cucumbers - 2 TBSP
  • Peeled and diced apples - 4 TBSP
  • Crushed ice to serve
  • Optional Addons - Mint, Green Chillies, White pepper


Method:
Blend Peach juice and half of the diced apples and some ice cubes. Strain and pour into chilled wine glasses. Tip in the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and serve immediately.

Notes - If using fresh peach, puree with 3 TBSP of Sugar, strain and use.

Cucumber is the odd one out but I love the basic peach flavour. .and adding apples is great ..so will surely make with this combo..guess a dash of lemon juice would be great too.

That is a very novel combination in a Sangria. Sounds very refreshing.

i think the cucumber is the clincher here to bring in that freshness and summer feeling...i have fresh peaches, so will try with peach and orange juice with cucumber
