Peaches in White Wine
Pesche in Vino Bianco

serves: 4 servings

This is just my own version of macedonia, or, as the French say, macedoine. A simple, refreshing summer dessert, it should be prepared 3 hours ahead of time. Blueberries or strawberries can be substituted for the cherries.

16 leaves fresh mint
3 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
1 cup pitted cherries
1 cup dry Spumante wine
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon Peachtree Schnapps
2 tablespoons sugar


Reserve 4 of the mint leaves, combine all other ingredients in a wide, deep dish, stir lightly until the sugar dissolves, and refrigerate 3 hours. Serve in stemmed glasses, topped with the reserved mint leaves.
