Rosemary Peach SpritzerPosted: May 26, 2011
For me there is nothing better than an amazing drink on a hot summer day. I love just relaxing outside sipping on something tasty. Thanks to Café LynnyLu for sharing this Martha Stewart recipe. Now all I need is a sunny day to try it….come on Seattle…please give me sun!
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 1/2 cups water
* 4 large ripe peaches (about 1 3/4 pounds), halved, pitted, and cut into 1-inch slices
* 4 sprigs rosemary, plus more for garnish
* Ice, for serving
* 4 cups cold white or rose wine
* 1 liter cold club soda
1. Bring sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add peaches and rosemary, and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat. Cover, and let cool. Discard rosemary. Peel peach slices if desired. Transfer peaches with syrup to a container; cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
2. Place 2 peach slices and about 1/4 cup syrup in 8 ice-filled glasses. Add 1/2 cup wine to each; top with club soda. Garnish each with a rosemary sprig, and serve immediately.
