Summer Fruits in Sparkling Wine

Find a good sparkling desert wine Peel an pit 4 large white peaches, nectaries, plums, cut them into thin slices. Toss in 1 Tab. sugar and let stand 10-20 min. Then spoon into goblets or parfait glasses Pour the sparkling wine over the fruit and serve. I like to make sure the fruit is chilled first before serving.
enjoy

I do this with a cheap dry sparkler like a Cava or Prosecco.

Delicious.

Also nice is a dry white with frozen grapes in it. Or a white sangria with frozen white and red grapes as the ice cubes.

Thanks for the ideas Jennyema. I can count on you for something good to eat or fix for my family.

In Australia there is a native Rosella flower (also called Wild Hibiscus) that can be bought in jars, preserved in syrup. You can add one of these "Wild Hibiscus" flowers with a little bit of the syrup into the bottom of a champagne flute and then top with sparkling wine:

Ma, any hibiscus flower would do, you probably grow them. I think even the ornamental ones are edible.
