- Cook time: 15 minutes
- Servings: 15
- 1 (750 ml) bottle such as Pinot Grigio dry white wine
- 3/4 cup orange liqueur
- 3/4 cup brandy
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3/4 lb (about 2 cups) unpeeled, pitted and cubed white peaches
- 1 liter chilled ginger ale
Combine first 4 ingredients in a 2-quart pitcher, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add peaches; cover and chill 1 hour.
Spoon peaches into bottom of wine glasses. Pour chilled wine mixture over peaches; top each serving with 1/4 cup ginger ale.
Note: Even Paula admits this drink packs a punch. For a less alcoholic version:
Combine 1/2 (750 ml) bottle of white wine with 1/4 cup orange liqueur, 1/4 cup brandy and 1 tbsp. sugar. Add peaches; cover and chill 1 hour. Assemble servings as directed. Stir in 1-1/2 liters chilled ginger ale; serve immediately.
