Love sangria in the summer? This recipe from Jackie Dodd, founder of the Beeroness, using grilled peaches and a Belgian Tripel is delicious to drink and gorgeous to pour.

Sure, you’ve grilled a lot of things. You may have even grilled fruit before. But have you grilled your cocktails? Well, you should. A grilled pineapple mojito? A grilled watermelon margarita? Grilled strawberry daiquiri?! It’s endless. But the most grill-able fruit of all is the peach.

With a beautiful sweetness that’s enhanced by the smoky char of the heated grates, grilled peaches have a multitude of uses. Warm slices over some vanilla ice cream, on a BBQ chicken pizza, or even in a cocktail. Which brings us to this sangria.

Since I’ve already broken the rules by grilling your fruit I decided to take it up a notch and break the “wine only” rule of sangria. I’ve added a Belgian Tripel, which takes the place of both the white wine and a sparkling soda. The beer has a higher-than-average ABV, low hop bitterness and nice malty sweetness that isn’t over powering. It’ll also go well with the grilled-peaches-and-ice-cream dessert you just decided to make.

Grilled Peach Beer Sangria Recipe

Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 firm but ripe peaches, sliced
  • ¼ cup golden rum
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
  • 1 1/3 cups peach nectar or peach juice
  • 22 oz Belgian Tripel Beer
  • 2 cups sliced frozen peaches


Preheat the grill to medium high. Grill the peaches on each side until grill marks appear, about 5 minutes. Remove from grill and refrigerate until chilled (can be done 24 hours in advance).

Add the rum, brown sugar, and lemon juice to a serving pitcher. Stir until brown sugar has dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients along with the grilled peaches. Serve immediately.

*The frozen peaches will keep the sangria cold without watering it down.
