Rachel on what is her favorite cocktail: “…it’s like [picking] your favorite song. I love them all so much.”
“I don’t think that people who don’t drink should but I think that if you do drink you should drink well.” - Rachel Maddow
“A great martini for brunches and bridal showers”
1 OUNCE WHITE PEACH PUREE (SEE NOTE)
1/2 OUNCE VODKA
1/2 OUNCE PEACH SCHNAPPS
2 TO 3 OUNCES CHAMPAGNE OR SPARKLING WINE
SPLASH OF LEMON JUICE
PEACH SLICE, FOR GARNISH
Combine the peach puree, vodka, and peach schnapps in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake moderately. Add the champagne and stir gently-do not shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
NOTE: To make fresh with peach puree, blend together the flesh of 2 ripe,peeled peaches with about 3/4 ounce simple syrup. You may want to add more simple syrup if the peaches are not very ripe if you prefer a sweeter martini.
