We are sad to see summer go (we make such fun & crazy memories) and aren't quite ready to do away with all that it entails. Since our favorite summer cocktail is wine (heck, that's our favorite cocktail for ALL seasons), and everyone loved our sangria so much, we thought "Hells Bells! Why don't we make a delightful recipe using our 'Perfect Peach Sangria'? It tastes like Summer in a Glass, right?" So we put our sun-bleached heads together and started thinking. This led to reminiscing of our glorious summer, as well as summers past....

We knew exactly what our first Fall Flavored Food recipe would be. "Thelma & Louise's Peach Sangria Ice Cream". It's the perfect way of blending old and new memories and bringing summer and fall together in one delicious frozen concoction!
Before you begin, you DO need an ice cream freezer. Some of y'all use that shiny Kitchen-Aid contraption, but we use our good ol' electric ice cream freezer. (For those of you who don't have one, you can buy them at WalMart. You're gonna want one 'cuz we have lots more homemade ice cream flavors to entice your bellies!)
First, make our delicious "Perfect Peach Sangria" (we have it in one of our blogs, but we made it easy - you can also find it here). Make a double batch so you can drink some AND have some for your ice cream. We like to make the sangria a day ahead so the peaches soak up that yummy goodness. But you can also make it and drink/use it for the ice cream AFTER refrigerating for two hours.
Perfect Peach Sangria
1 750ml bottle of White Wine (recommend Riesling or Moscato)
1/3 c Triple Sec
2 c Frozen or fresh Peaches (peach/mango/pineapple frozen blend is a good alternative)
