Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons mild honey
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh ginger, (35g)
  • 2 medium-sized white nectarines or peaches, chopped
  • 2 medium-sized white nectarines or peaches, sliced
  • 1/4 cup strained lemon juice
  • 1 bottle prosecco or other dry white sparkling wine such as cava, chilled, (750 ml)
  • 1 cup St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, chilled
  • ice
  • 1-2 cups sparkling water, chilled

Instructions

  • In a large measuring pitcher, muddle together the honey and chopped ginger until the juices run out of the ginger, 1 minute. Muddle in the chopped nectarines and lemon juice until well crushed. (Alternatively, pulse the mixture in a food processor or with an immersion blender to speed up this process.) Stir in half of the prosecco. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve and into a large punch bowl or pitcher, pressing on the fruit pulp to extract all the good stuff. Discard the pulp.Add the rest of the prosecco, the St. Germain and the sliced nectarines to the sangría. Taste, adding more lemon juice if you feel the drink it needs it. Add ice and sparkling water to the pitcher, and serve within the hour while the drink is bubbly, ladling it into cups with bits of the fruit.

Notes

Inspired by Feasting at Home's Peach and Elderflower Sangría.
Feel free to use white or yellow peaches or nectarines here. Since fruit and wines vary in sweetness, add more lemon or honey to your taste.
Do add the prosecco and sparkling water shortly before serving to retain the bubbles.
