This is a refreshing, sweet taste of summer, which can be adapted to make it non-alcoholic for drivers or those trying to be good. The peaches add vitamin C, B vitamins and betacarotene, which help to protect the liver and go some way to compensating for the alcohol load!


Serves 4

2 large ripe peaches

2 heaped tbsp raspberries

1 bottle chilled Champagne or non-alcoholic, sparkling grape juice


1 Chill the glasses.

2 Pureé the peaches until completely smooth. If necessary, you can do this in advance and chill the pureé. Press the raspberries through a fine sieve to extract the pulp without the seeds. Again, you can do this in advance and put the pulp in the fridge.

3 Place a couple of tablespoons of the peach purée and a teaspoon of raspberry purée into each glass and slowly top up with wine or juice, stirring as you pour. You should aim to have one-third fruit purée to two-thirds fizz.
