All right, people — we're in the thick of summer, so it's time to belly up to the bar for some ice-cold sangria with ripe summer fruit.

Please don't go to that bad place in your mind of sickly sweet concoctions and hangovers so horrible that you'll swear off the stuff. Great sangria can be refreshing, and it's perfect for a summer party.

Nowadays with the endless varieties of wine and types of fruit and herb mix-ins to choose from, there's a signature sangria out there for everyone. No longer are we strictly limited to the classic red wine cocktail; in fact you can even make delicious non-alcoholic sangrias.

For this 10-Minute Happy Hour we're jumping on the bandwagon of Moscato, the slightly sweet and slightly spritzy white wine from the northeastern region of Italy. Moscato is currently beating out Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling for most popular wine in the glass.

We're mixing it up with some peach brandy and ripe white peaches for a pitcher-perfect happy hour. Wrap some melon in prosciutto and you've got a gorgeous, not to mention delicious, happy hour.
