Sauternes and Frozen Stone Fruit

By Amber Rolt on 15/08/14 10:00 AM

This is a delicious cocktail made from cubes of juicy peach and apricots, doused with peach nectar and frozen in an ice tray. Sauternes is a full-bodied dessert wine from western France. The liquid plumps up the fruit, which descends to the bottom of the glass as the cubes melt. Perfect on a summer afternoon.


1 large peach (about 7 ounces)

2 medium apricots (about 2 ounces each)

1/3 cup peach nectar

1 cup chilled Sauternes



Pit and cut peach and apricots into 1/4-inch dice. Then, divide the fruit evenly among 16 sections of an ice cube tray. Add 1 teaspoon peach nectar to each section, so that there is just enough to cover the fruit. Freeze for about 6 hours.Then put 4 fruit cubes into each of 4 chilled wine glasses. Pour 1/4 cup chilled Sauternes into each glass. Let stand 5 minutes and enjoy!
