I am excited today to share my first Kitchen Konfidence video with all of you! I had mentioned back in July that I wanted to experiment with making cooking videos this year. After many weeks of preparing and practicing, I finally finished my first movie! I’ll have to admit, staging, shooting and editing a video with just one person is not an easy task. I encountered many bumps along the road, but overall, the experience was entertaining, educational and enjoyable. The video is far from perfect, but after watching it, you will have all of the skills and knowledge needed to make the most fabulous Peach Ginger Sangria. Flavored with aromatic ginger simple syrup, this wine punch is crisp, refreshing and oh so easy to prepare. I hope you enjoy :)! Please be sure to leave your thoughts and comments in the section below. Any feedback is much appreciated! Continue reading for the video.
Peach Ginger Sangria
- 2 knobs of ginger (approximated 4 to 5 inches long)
- 1 cup turbinado sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 ripe peaches (white or yellow)
- 1 orange, juiced
- 1/2 cup brandy
- 1 750 ml bottle chilled white wine
Trim the ends of the ginger root with a knife. Using a small spoon, peel the skin from ginger and discard. Slice ginger into long, thin ribbons (about 1/4 inch thick).
In a small saucepan, combine sliced ginger, turbinado sugar and water. Warm over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil, bubble for 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Set aside to cool (with ginger still in the syrup).
While the ginger simple syrup is cooling, prepare your peaches. Cut peaches in half and remove the pit and stem. Cut the halves into thin slices.
Once the simple syrup has cooled to room temperature, pour through a basket strainer into a clean bowl. Measure out 1/3 cup simple syrup and refrigerate the rest for another use (other cocktails or iced tea). Discard ginger slices.
In a large pitcher combine sliced peaches, orange juice, 1/3 cup ginger simple syrup, brandy and chilled white wine, stirring to combine.
If you have a few hours to spare, transfer to the refrigerator to chill. If not, simply serve over ice, garnishing with the boozy peach slices.
