Stone Fruit and Raspberry Sangria

So. A very exciting thing happened this weekend. I got to go to....THE WEST WING! Like real life, lookin in at the Oval Offices, sneakin outside the Situation Room. It was my real life SQUEEEEE. I'm a total political nerd.

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 apricot
1 nectarine
1 small peach
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 bottles rosé wine
2 C St. Germaine or another elderflower liquer
1 peach sliced
1 nectarine sliced
1 plum sliced
1 C frozen raspberries
Sparkling water

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!
