We accidentally stumbled upon this sparkling nectarine punch recipe. We picked out a few of our favourite ingredients and not loving the combination, left it to one side. A random sip a few minutes later left us in love with the delicious Summer flavours and a brand new recipe was born.
Stone fruit is one of the hallmarks of the Summer seasons and combined with bubbles and a few fresh herbs, makes this one that is perfect to whip up for a party.
1/2 nectarine thinly sliced
Squeeze of lemon juice
2 Thyme springs
1 tsp caster sugar
Champagne or Prosecco
Combine nectarine, lemon juice, thyme and sugar in a jug, glass of cocktail shaker and let sit for an hour.
Pour ingredients over plenty of ice into a tall glass and top with champagne or prosecco. Leave for the flavours to combine for a few minutes.
Garnish with Thyme sprigs.
