Care for a beverage? Gingerbread Latte

White Nectarine Champagne Cocktail

  • 3 large ripe white nectarines, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup peach liqueur
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) champagne

Place the nectarines, peach liqueur, and lemon juice in a blender and process until completely smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer and transfer the puree to a large glass pitcher. Refrigerate until completely chilled.

To serve, carefully add the champagne to the pitcher, stirring gently to blend. Alternately, pour 2 tablespoons of puree into individual champagne flutes and top with sparkling wine.  Serves 8.  (Or serves just Kathy because she would kick a puppy to drink 8 of these right about now)

If I could I’d rename this the Kathy Is Over Being Pregnant and Wishes She Could Have This Cocktail.  I’m annoyingly reminding Joelle that I am really into white nectarines right now for no known reason other than they have them at the store at the moment and I can’t resist them.  I’ve been eating two a day.  What better use for white nectarines than to mash them up and douse them with my other favorite thing, champagne.  I might as well die and go to heaven.
