(NC) - Take this traditional Spanish drink to a whole new level by infusing your favourite local white wine with fresh Ontario peaches and basil - a refreshing drink best served as a late afternoon aperitif on a warm summer's day. Don't forget to add swizzle sticks so your guests can spear the fresh peaches and enjoy them in this delightful beverage.

  • 3 cups one bottle of Ontario white wine 750 mL
  • 4 basil leaves 4


The previous night or same morning: Slice peaches into segments, place in a pitcher and add white wine. Chill for several hours in fridge or cooler so flavours combine. Before serving, place a fresh basil leaf in each glass. Evenly distribute peach slices and wine.

Did you know that peaches and nectarines have shoulders and cheeks? It's true; the shoulder is the bulge around the stem at the top of the fruit - the more mature the fruit, the fuller it becomes.And the cheeks of the fruit are on either side of the suture (the crease that runs from the stem to the blossom end).

Serving Size: Makes 4 Servings
