Nectarine frosé recipe

Nectarine frosé recipe

Nothing screams of summer like this sweet, refreshing frosé. Boasting juicy nectarines, which are at their best from May to September, this vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free dessert is perfect for when the heat is on. If you can’t get nectarines, you can always substitute with peaches.

Prep time: 35 mins to prepare minutes

Cook time: 5-10 mins to cook, plus overnight chilling minutes

Servings: 6-8 people

Preparation

1. Pour the wine into a large, shallow tin or freezerproof container and freeze overnight – it won’t freeze solid.

2. Meanwhile, put the sugar and chopped nectarines in a saucepan with the vanilla extract and 100ml (3 1/2fl oz) water. Cook over a gentle heat for 5-10 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved and the nectarines are soft, translucent and juicy. Cool, then chill in the fridge overnight.

3. When ready to serve, put the frozen wine and chilled nectarines and syrup in a blender with the ice and blitz until smooth. Pour into dessert glasses and garnish with a nectarine wedge in each. Serve immediately.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines
