Peaches and Wine, a divine dessert worth making if you are a wine and fruit lover. Fresh fruits steep into a mixture of wine and orange liquor and cinnamon stick—the perfect combination of flavors.
Whether it is the seasoning for peach or not, you should not deprive yourself of eating gourmet and good food. And especially when you have not spoiled yourself in a while.
About the recipe
The recipe is originated from Aragon, an autonomous community located in the northeastern part of Spain. I have made this recipe a few times, and each time it tastes a little bit different. The difference is the wine. I have used Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Malbec, and Merlot.
My preferences are Malbec and Shiraz because of the bold and deep flavors. Shiraz wines tend to have a lot of fruit flavor, so the balance with the peaches is perfect, in my opinion. Malbec wine, especially from the Mendoza region, is uniquely fragrant, delicious, and deep in flavor.
This recipe for Peaches and Wines is similar to making Sangria. The only disparities are preparing the peaches and cooking the wine, sugar, lemon zest, and cinnamon. The soaking period increases the fruit flavor of the winemaking. This drink is the perfect dessert drink or the perfect afternoon or evening relaxing drink.
The ingredient for the Peaches and Wine recipe:
- large peaches, firm
- dry red wine (semi-dry work well also)
- sugar – organic works wonderfully
- lemon zest, for a delicate and pop falvor to wake your palette.
- cinnamon stick, very aromatic and a multi purpose woogy spice.
- brandy or orange liquor, this item is optional, but it is workt adding it.
- The perfect dessert drink for Palm Sunday and Easter.
- Use semi sweet or semi dry wine.
