Peach Wine Coolers

  This is an ingenious, delicious, refreshing drink.  And super simple to make – you basically puree some peaches, wine and schnapps together.  Then strain (or not – but I preferred it strained) into some ice and more wine and you get the perfect summer refreshment!   And for someone like me – who cannot get enough peaches this time of year and who really likes wine – it really does not get much better than this.
See I loved it so much I put it in my garden to photograph!  :)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh peaches, peeled and chopped
  • 2 ounces peach schnapps
  • generous pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 750-mL bottles dry Riesling, Pinot Grigio, or Sauvignon Blanc (I used Riesling)
  • ice, for serving

Directions

1. Combine the peaches, peach schnapps, salt, and 2 cups of wine a food processor or blender.  Puree until smooth and frothy, about 1 minute.

2. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, or transfer directly to a pitcher or bowl.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

3. To serve, fill a large wine glass with ice, then fill about halfway with the peach mixture.  Top off glass with reserved wine.
