Sparkling wine adds some fizz to our favourite "fuzzy navel" cocktail. Toss in a few of our superb, Canadian summer-ripe peaches and you've got the ultimate patio cocktail.


Ingredients

  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups vodka
  • 1 cup peach schnapps
  • 750-mL bottle sparkling wine , well chilled
  • 1 ripe peach
  • ice cubes
  • 8 mint sprigs

Instructions

  • In a large pitcher, stir juice with vodka and peach schnapps. Stir in wine. Peel peach, if you like, then slice in half. Discard pit. Slice peach halves into thin wedges. Fill 8 to 10 glasses with a few ice cubes and 1 or 2 peach wedges. Fill glasses with wine mixture. Garnish with mint sprigs. Refrigerate remaining mixture. If making ahead, prepare up to point of adding wine. Cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours or overnight. Stir in wine and add garnish just before serving. Cheers!
