Peach Prosecco Cocktail

By Justine Drake

Serves 4


2 peach-flavoured tea bags
1 cup (250 ml) boiling water
¾ cup (183 ml) white sugar
4-8 basil leaves
1-2 peaches, thinly sliced
1 bottle (750 ml) vegan-friendly Prosecco or sparkling wine


Pop the tea bags into water and infuse to make a strong tea.
Place the tea and sugar in a pot and boil to reduce by half and create a simple peach syrup. Allow to cool.
Place 1 Tbsp (15 ml) of the peach syrup at the bottom of each champagne flute.
Add 2 peach slices and 1 basil leaf and top with ice cold Prosecco.
