For each glass: Cut a peach, with its skin on, into small pieces and blend it. Pour the juice you obtain – either filtered or not, according to your taste – into a champagne flute and fill the glass up with well chilled Spumante. Two little tips: – If the peaches aren’t ripe enough and lack in flavour, add 1 or 2 teaspoons of sugar per peach when you blend them. – if you don’t filter the pureed peach, the quantity obtained from one peach will be enough for at least two glasses.
