Espuma Summer White Sangria

Yield: approximately 1 gallon

4 bottles white wine (something dry and fruity)

3 oranges, cut into eighths

1 lime, cut into eighths

2 fresh bay leaves

10 mint leaves

20 cracked peppercorns

1 cinnamon stick, whole

3 peaches, preferably white, cut into eighths

1 tsp salt

10 lemon verbena leaves (optional)

1 vanilla bean (optional)

Pour the wine into a large pitcher or carafe. Add all the remaining ingredients except for the oranges and lime. Squeeze the citrus into the wine, herb, and spice mixture and add the fruit, as well. Stir the mixture. Allow the pitcher to stand at room temperature for 4 hours before serving, or cover and refrigerate overnight. To serve, fill a glass with ice and pour the white sangria over the ice until almost full. Top off with a spash of soda water or champagne to give it a bit of pizzazz!

YOu and I must have been listening to the same show!
I prefer red sangria, however. I mean, the name comes from the word for blood - sangre.
Do you need a recipe for the red kind?

Though I don't necessarily foresse the need for it, any and all booze recipes and recommendations are always welcome.
