NECTARINES IN PROSECCO
Prosecco is a crisp Italian sparkling wine which pairs nicely with peaches or nectarines. The vanilla beans add a wonderful flavor which you cannot get from extract.
Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
Active time: 20 minutes
- 3 cups Prosecco or a light sparking wine
- 6 ripe nectarines, thinly sliced
- 3 vanilla beans
- 1 pint raspberry sorbet
- 6 sprigs of mint
Pour the Prosecco or sparkling wine in a large glass bowl. Cut the vanilla beans open lengthwise, with the back end
of a knife, starting at one end of the bean, scrape out the seeds. Whisk the seeds and the beans into the Prosecco;
even though you've scraped out the seeds there is plenty of flavor left in the bean. Add the sliced nectarines, cover and chill for two hours. Stir after an hour gently with a rubber spatula.
To serve, spoon out the nectarines among six wine or martini glasses. Pour some of the Prosecco over the nectarines and top with a scoop of raspberry sorbet. Garnish with mint.
