Lillet Blanc & Peaches

Peaches, French Wine & Late Summer!

To try my grownup peach dessert, you just need to plan ahead. Buy a bottle of Lillet Blanc wine and then chill the dessert overnight before eating.


8 Ripe Peaches

2 Tablespoons Crystallized Ginger Chips

4 Tablespoons Sugar

1 750-ML Bottle Lillet Blanc Wine

3 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Basil

1 Pint Whipped Cream

1/4 Cup Chopped Pistachio Nuts

Peel peaches and cut them into half-inch wedges. Place peaches into a large-size bowl. Add ginger, sugar, and basil, and give a good toss. Add Lillet and cover with plastic wrap. Place into fridge overnight, and when you are ready to serve, fill 6 wine or dessert glasses halfway with the peach and Lillet mixture. Top with whipped cream and garnish with pistachio nuts.  Serve immediately.  Serves 6
