Peach infused in mint and vermouth
The memories of summer, the fragrance of peaches and mint are unforgettable. This is magic in the heat of a lovely summer night.
I have also included below a very similar recipe, but instead of peaches I sometimes use strawberries.
And when I want to give an extra lucky charm to one of my cakes the strawberry and martini will go on the side bringing colour and the ideal quick that only a vermouth flavour can do!
8 yellow peaches – cut them into 4 pieces and remove the stones.
2 cups of sugar –
1 litre of orange juice
2 tbsp of lemon juice
Handful of mint leaves, cut it with a scissor
250ml of martini bianco, cinzano or vermouth of your choice
Cut the peaches into 4 pieces and remove the stones.
Bring the sugar, the orange juice and lemon juice to the boil. Add now the martini.
Place the peaches into a bowl, pour the liquid over the peaches and mix it gently adding the mint leaves that you have cut with a scissor.
Place in the fridge so it will be nicely infused to serve later.
