So of course, what did I want to do? Make an appetizer and a sangria. Because I mean, why the hell not? My friends Melissa and Anne Marie were coming over to meet up with Brett and me to head on over to the White House. And I had previously come upon a recipe for a stone fruit sangria from Bon Appetit. I decided that given the bountiful amounts of stone fruits, it looked like a good idea.
I made some adjustments - if you so care to do so, look at their recipe and mine - but it was a total hit. And I promise, when I was in the White House, I was neither drunk nor disruptive. USA ALL THE WAY!
1 small peach
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 bottles rosé wine
2 C St. Germaine or another elderflower liquer

Crush and purée the ingredients under purée.
Add the remaining ingredients through the frozen raspberries. Serve with 1 ice cube, a couple frozen raspberries and a splash of sparkling water. Enjoy!
