Peach And Elderflower Sangria

Ingredients:

1 bottle floral fruity white wine- viognier, pinot grigio, riesling
3 ripe peaches, plus more for garnish
¼ Cup Elderflower liquor like St Germain ( or sub another fruity or floral liqueur- see notes)
¼ Cup sugar
¼ Cup water
Handful fresh herbs- mint, basil, lemon balm, lemon verbena, or lemon thyme

Instructions

Let peaches ripen on kitchen counter a day or two until fragrant and slightly soft.
Bring sugar, water and a handful of herbs to a simmer, in a small pot on the stove, stirring until sugar dissolves. Let cool, either overnight in the fridge for more an even more intense herb flavor, or just for a few minutes. Slice peaches.
Place peaches, wine, herbed simple syrup and a splash or two of Elder flower liquor ( St. Germaine) in a pitcher or large mason jar.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. It will become more and more flavorful if left overnight or even for a couple days. Peaches may brown slightly , but will taste better and better.
If serving to guests, strain out the browning peaches, and replace with freshly sliced peaches, and handful of fresh herbs and serve over ice.
