Sparkling Peach Shiver 

A little treat from the Ontario Tender Fruit Producers:

Summer is here... it's time to chill and deliver the thrill of this original Sparkling Peach Shiver. Frosty, fragrant and delicious, this cocktail, made with fresh, sweet Ontario peaches and a crisp, refreshing sparkling wine of your choice, is sure to add sparkle to any occasion. Nothing says summer more than sipping and savouring the fresh flavor of a tender fruit that comes from our very own orchards! Ontario peaches are available from mid-July to mid-September, and this frozen cocktail is the perfect way to celebrate the season.

For a truly unique Ontario experience, blend Ontario peaches with an Ontario sparkling wine, chill and enjoy.

Sparkling Ontario Peach Shiver

The perfect frozen drink for hot summer days. This frosty beverage, made with fresh sweet Ontario Peaches, will add a tangy twist to your next brunch.

  • 3 cups dry sparkling wine (750 mL)
  • ½ cup water (125 mL)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar (50 mL)
  • 1 cup Ontario peaches, pitted, peeled, sliced (250 mL)
  • 1 2-inch (5 cm) slice orange peel (zest)
  • Garnish: Ontario Peaches, pitted, sliced

Chill sparkling wine and serving glasses.

In saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring water and sugar to boil, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat. Add peaches and zest. Cover; let cool completely.

In blender or food processor, blend peach mixture until smooth.

Pour sparkling wine into 9" × 13" (3 L) pan. Stir in peach purée. Cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer for at least 6 hours. Stir every hour to break up ice into large crystals.

To serve, spoon peach crystals into chilled glasses. Garnish with peach slices.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
