A few weeks ago I happened to read that the lovely Natasha in Oz was looking for some bloggers to guest post for her... let me tell you, I was on the email to her faster than you can say 'omgIwouldlovetodothisanditwouldbeawesome'!

And as luck would have it, here I am today!

Massive thanks to Natasha and you guys for having me, and since its such an exciting occasion, and our summer weather has been way too hot already, I thought I'd share my gorgeous Pomegranate, Peach & Lime Sangria recipe.

Sangria is something I've just recently discovered - it's not that common here in Australia - but oh my goodness....

Light and refreshing, it's just perfect for our hot summer evenings, and it's now one of my go to entertaining recipes.

I'm also a massive fan of supporting local vineyards, and this recipe features wine from another Aussie blogger -  my good friend Elisha from The Windmill Paddock - who kindly dropped around a bottle of her Sangiovese Tempranillo.

So here's how to make it.


You will need:

2 small yellow peaches
1 pomegranate
1 lime
1 bottle of lemonade
1 bottle of Rose
2 - 3 drops vanilla essence

STEP ONE: Finely slice the lime and peaches, and add to the bottom of a large jug. Add pomegranate seeds.

STEP TWO: Add a few drops of vanilla essence to the fruit. I found a few drops weren't enough to make the drink taste of vanilla, it just softened the flavors and helped round them out.

STEP THREE: Fill the jug 1/3 full with the Rose - depending on how strong and alcoholic you want it to be. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to develop. Top the jug up with lemonade right before serving.

And there we have it - Pomegranate, Peach and Lime Sangria! 

The great thing about this recipe is it's so versatile - you can use whatever fruit is in season, your favorite local wines, and taste as you go to make your own unique, fabulous recipe.

Once again, I'd like to say a massive thanks to Natasha and you guys for having me today! I hope you try this recipe and love it as much as I do!

All the best,
