White wine peach sangria

Thinking about the holiday weekend - we’ll be traveling back home - reminded me of this from the truly CH renowned Maria Lorraine. It’s so good and can be made up ahead of time.

I wonder if you have seen the recent LA Times article on Sangrias. One of the recipes is for a White peach-Riesling sangria:
Servings: 6

750ml. bottle dry Riesling
1 1/2 cups white cranberry-peach drink
1/2 cup peach nectar
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons simple syrup – equal parts sugar and water heated till sugar melts
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
2 lemons, cut in 1/2 -inch slices
2 oranges, cut in 1/2 -inch slices
2 ripe white peaches, cut into wedges
10 fresh raspberries
Club soda, if desired
Fresh mint sprigs, if desired

Paraphrased procedure: Combine all ingredients and chill, best if chilled for 2-3 days to allow flavors to marry. Serve in pretty glass over ice with an optional float of club soda and sprig of mint. Can make pretty ice cubes by freezing raspberry or other small berry in each cube.
