Peach Crush

I am going through magazines (I have a thing for magazines) to cut out articles, recipes, crafts and such to save. I am going to try to pull a recipe a month from the file to try.

But anyway here is one I want to try this summer as we live in peach country. We even have a Peach Festival.

2 cups diced peaces, fresh or frozen, please added slices for garnish
2 cups crushed ice
2 to 3 teaspoons of sugar (depending on the sweetness of peaches)
1/4 cup loosely packed basil leaves, plus some for garnish
1 bottle sparkling white wine or sparkling apple cider, chilled

Place peaches, ice, sugar (use less or none if using cider), and basil leaves in the blender; puree until smooth. Pour pureed peaches into chilled glasses until half full. Add sparkling wine/cider. Serve garnished with basil sprig and a slice of peach.

The recipe is from the magazine (they don't have a paper version of the magazine anymore - it was a really good magazine - I just signed up for their free online magazine so will see how if that is just as good.)
