A bushel of peaches gave me a reason to create a wine cocktail. I meant to serve it with our meal, but we “taste-tested” it while grilling. —Katie Ferrier Gage, Houston, Texas

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 large piece fresh gingerroot (about 3 inches), peeled and coarsely chopped
  • COCKTAIL:
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 2 medium ripe peaches, peeled and halved
  • 1 bottle (750 milliliters) white wine, chilled
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups chilled ginger ale
  • Fresh mint leaves and peach slices, optional

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, water and ginger; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes. Cool completely. Pour syrup through a strainer into a covered container; discard ginger.
  2. Place liqueur and 1/4 cup ginger syrup in a blender. (Cover and refrigerate remaining syrup for another use.) Add peaches; cover and process until smooth.
  3. Transfer mixture to a 2-qt. pitcher; stir in wine. Serve over ice, topping with ginger ale. If desired, serve with mint and peach slices.
