Sparkling Elderflower and Fresh Peach Margarita Recipe

Drinks, Peaches |

This Sparkling Elderflower and Peach Margarita recipe will become your new favorite drink to sip on. Add some Harry & David Oregold® Peaches, and you're set for summer!

The arrival of Harry & David’s famous Oregold® Peaches is one of the highlights of summer. Big, succulent and extra sweet, these Oregold® Peaches are hands down the best peaches. They are great for snacking, baking, grilling and even drinking. Yes, that’s right. Drinking!

The juiciness of Oregold® Peaches makes them well suited to use in drinks as a fresh ingredient.They deliver a big punch of peach flavor in these fun and fruity Sparkling Elderflower and Fresh Peach Margaritas.

This Peach Margarita recipe is very easy to make. First, blend together some pitted, peeled, and chopped Harry & David Oregold® Peaches with agave syrup and lime juice to create a smooth purée. Next, shake up some of this purée with blanco tequila and elderflower liqueur. Then strain it into a prepared glass and top it off with a couple ounces of Prosecco for a refreshing, effervescent finish.

There are a couple substitutions to this recipe that are worth mentioning because there shouldn't be any barriers between you and these margaritas. First is the elderflower liqueur. While it does add some lovely, subtle flora notes to this recipe, you can substitute it for orange liqueur, which might be more accessible. This will give you more of a traditional margarita flavor profile. The second place where you can switch things up is the Prosecco. If you’re looking for a cocktail with a little less “oomph”, try topping off this margarita with sparkling tonic water or club soda instead of the Prosecco or any sparkling wine. You’ll still get great fizz, but without the added alcohol.

Ingredients

For the Peach Purée

  • 4 Harry & David Oregold® Peaches, pitted, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

For the Margaritas (per cocktail)

  • 3 ounces peach purée
  • 1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1/2 ounce elderflower liqueur
  • 2-4 ounces Prosecco (can substitute sparkling water)
  • Ice

For Garnish

  • Flaky sea salt
  • Sliced Harry & David Oregold® Peaches Sliced lime

Instructions

  1. To make the peach purée add all the ingredients to your blender and blend on high until smooth. Transfer the purée to a clean container and refrigerate it until you're ready to use it. You'll have enough of the purée to make approximately eight cocktails.
  2. To prepare your glasses, start by spreading some flaky sea salt out onto a small plate. Moisten the rim of your glasses with fresh lime juice. Then gently press the moistened rim down into the sea salt so that it adheres to the rim of glass. Add ice and set aside.
  3. To make a single cocktail, add the peach purée tequila and elderflower liqueur to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Then strain into one of your prepared glasses. Top with Prosecco and stir gently. Garnish with sliced peaches and lime. Enjoy immediately.
