Tis the season to be jolly so take your festive family recipes up a notch by bringing luscious peaches to your yuletide table. Talented and much loved TV chef, Justine Drake's peach Prosecco cocktail is sure to get the celebrations off to a peachy start.
2 peach-flavoured tea bags
1 cup (250 ml) boiling water
¾ cup (183 ml) white sugar
4-8 basil leaves
1-2 peaches, thinly sliced
1 bottle (750 ml) Prosecco (Sparkling wine or Cap Classique are good alternatives)
Pop the tea bags into water and infuse to make a strong tea.
Place the tea and sugar in a pot and boil to reduce by half and create a simple peach syrup.
Allow to cool.
Place 1 Tbsp (15 ml) of the peach syrup at the bottom of each champagne flute.
Add 2 peach slices and 1 basil leaf and top with ice cold Prosecco.
