Wine and Peaches
Recipe Intro From lisathompson

This drink is the embodiment of summer! Every summer when I was a kid, I watched my dad make a batch of this wine and peaches that stays chilled in the fridge. The best way to enjoy this summery sipper is to treat it like a dessert- some boozy wine-soaked peaches to eat and refreshing chilled wine to savor. My dad always used an inexpensive chianti, but feel free to use your favorite white wine or rosé instead.
