Peach-Basil Sangria

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
  • 3 ½ cups peach nectar
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle white wine such as Pinot Grigio
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    In a saucepan, combine the sugar, basil leaves, half of the peach nectar and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, crushing the basil leaves with the back of a spoon to release their flavor. Simmer just long enough to melt the sugar, then remove from the heat and allow to cool.
