The aroma of fresh peaches from the farmer’s market and the joy of a sunny Sunday afternoon with loved ones makes the perfect setting for a homemade low-carb white wine Sangria, paired delightfully with pizzas crafted with love.
Creating this low-carb Sangria starts with choosing the freshest fruits – peaches, honey crisp apples, raspberries, lemon, and lime. Selecting fruits that are in season and at their peak ripeness will ensure a naturally sweet and flavorful Sangria. On this occasion, peaches and raspberries from the local farmer’s market were the stars of the drink.
To start, slice your apples and peaches — I like to slice them very thinly – and place the fruits in a pitcher and add a half cup of Monk Fruit sweetener, a natural and low-carb alternative to sugar that doesn’t compromise on the sweetness. Gently mix the fruit and sweetener, making sure every piece is coated but not crushed, maintaining the integrity of the fruits. This careful muddling ensures the fruits release their natural juices and flavors, enriching the Sangria without overpowering it.
After the initial muddle, introduce a quarter cup of either brandy or cognac, adding a layer of complexity and depth to the beverage. A gentle stir is all it needs before pouring a bottle of a no sugar added white wine, such as a refreshing and crisp aline, melding the elements together harmoniously.
Once all the components are mixed, the pitcher finds its place in the fridge, allowing the flavors to intertwine and intensify while the pizzas are lovingly prepared. After a minimum of thirty minutes, the Sangria is ready to be served over ice, ensuring a cool and refreshing experience with every sip.
This low-carb white wine Sangria is not just a drink; it’s a celebration of life’s simple pleasures – fresh produce, loved ones, and shared meals. It’s about finding joy in the little things and creating memorable moments while maintaining a healthy, low-carb lifestyle. So, here’s to beautiful Sundays filled with laughter, homemade pizzas, and a glass of this splendid low-carb white wine Sangria.
