- 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.
