peaches in wine, 2 ways


  • 1 bottle dry red wine and/or 1 bottle prosecco, both chilled
  • 2 large peaches, cut into wedges*
  • 2 heaped tsp of sugar, plus more to taste
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

*When you halve the peaches (before cutting into wedges) scoop out some of the fruit underneath the pit. It tends to be slightly bitter which you don’t want in your drink.

Note: this recipe serves 2, so you will have some wine/prosecco leftover. To serve 4, add an additional 2 peaches and 2 heaped tsp of sugar.


  1. Add the peaches to a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with the sugar and toss gently. Taste, and add more sugar if necessary- you want the peaches slightly sweet.
  3. Drizzle the juice of 1/2 lemon over the top.
  4. Let the peaches sit for about 15 minutes to macerate.
  5. To serve, add the peaches, including some of the fruit syrup that has puddled at the bottom of the bowl to wine glasses- the exact amount is up to you.
  6. Top each glass with red wine or prosecco.
  7. Chill the glasses for 30 minutes for the flavors to infuse.
  8. Serve cold.
