A Summer Boozy Beverage: Plum and Nectarine Fizz

This is perfect for these lovely summer days we have been having. Temperatures soaring into the 40ºC there is nothing more refreshing than this plum and nectarine fizz.  I love using ingredients that are in season. There are plenty of fruit vendors in Worcester and stone fruits this year has been phenomenal.  I would recommend using the white nectarine if you can find. Make sure the plums are slightly firm.

The recipe calls for a dry white wine. For the plum and nectarine fizz I would recommend using a Viognier, , Sauvignon Blanc or even a Pinot Grigio. If you want to go with a slightly sweeter, you certainly can. I would recommend a Gewurztraminer or a Riesling.

Plum and Nectarine Fizz

Keeping the boozy fruit mixture overnight in the fridge helps for all the flavours to develop. I recommend using a Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, or a Viognier. If you like a little sweeter you can opt for a Gewürztraminer or a Riesling.
