Andrew and Laurel Quady were looking for a way to celebrate the 80th Anniversary Party of their longtime English importer, Hallgarten Druitt, and in the process they found a delicious way to drink up their succulent peaches. The Summer Peach is newly created in honor of our much loved importer, we wish them 80 years to come!
The orange-apricot character of Essensia Orange Muscat, the subtle herbaceous notes in the the Vya Whisper Dry, and the soft bubbles of Prosecco unite with a summer peach like never before…
¼ ripe fragrant peach, with peel (white is preferred, must be fresh and aromatic)
1 ounce Essensia
1 ounce Whisper Dry Vermouth
2 ounces Prosecco
How to make The Summer Peach:
Using a muddling tool, mash the peach in a 12 oz cocktail shaking glass.
Add Essensia and Whisper Dry Vermouth.
Continue to mash a little more.
Fill the glass with ice and shake until contents are very cold and frothy.
Strain into a chilled champagne flute or a saucer shaped champagne or cocktail glass (use a strainer with 1/8 inch holes).
Top up with 2 oz chilled Prosecco.
Enjoy the sweet fruits of your labor!
