    • Yield: 1 serving
    • Category: Drinks


    • 2 tablespoons peach purée (preferably white peach, see notes)
    • 4 ounces Prosecco
    1. Place the peach purée in the bottom of a Champagne flute and top with the Prosecco. (We are all about Berks County products here, so, while not technically a true Prosecco, we encourage you to mix this drink with the award winning Blanc de Blanc from Pinnacle Ridge Winery in Kutztown, PA) Stir very gently and serve immediately.

    To make peach purée:

    Place slices of peeled, chopped peach in the work bowl of a food processor, process until smooth and strain through a fine mesh strainer.

    You can substitute peach nectar in a pinch.

    (pilfered from


    1 quart cold water

    6 black tea bags

    2 tablespoons sugar

    Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan; remove from the heat, add tea bags, and let steep 5 minutes.

    Transfer to a pitcher, add peach nectar, and stir to combine.

    Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

    Fill tall glasses with ice and then pour peach tea over, leaving some room at the top for the whiskey.

    Stir in 1 shot of whiskey to each glass and garnish with a peach slice and fresh mint.
