(NC) - Frosty, fragrant and sweet, this cocktail combines fresh Ontario peaches with a crisp, refreshing sparkling wine of your choice. Its ice crystals create a cool oasis in a landscape of summer heat. Ontario peaches are available from late-July to mid-September and this frozen cocktail is the perfect way to celebrate the season.
Chill sparkling wine and serving glasses.
In saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring water and sugar to boil, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat. Add peaches and zest. Cover; let cool completely.
In blender or food processor, blend peach mixture until smooth.
Pour sparkling wine into 9-inch x 13-inch [3 L] pan. Stir in peach purée. Cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer for at least 6 hours. Stir every hour to break up ice into large crystals.
To serve, spoon peach crystals into chilled glasses. Garnish with peach slices. Source: www.ontariotenderfruit.com
