Though created in jest as an alternative to the ubiquitous frosé, friesling—a frozen, riesling-based drink—can nonetheless be both balanced and delicious. Here, peach-infused vodka adds a slight fruity kick to the simple recipe.
- 1 half bottle of off dry riesling, (like St. Urbans-Hof Nik Weis 2014)
- 3/4 ounce peach-infused vodka, (see Editor's Note)
- 1/2 ounce lemon juice
Garnish: fresh peach slices
- Freeze riesling in a pint-sized jar.
- Once frozen, allow to thaw slightly until the texture is just slushy.
- Stir in vodka and lemon juice until fully incorporated.
- Garnish with fresh peach slices.
1-3 white peaches
Pour the vodka into a pint-sized jar. Add peach slices to the jar until its full. Cover and let sit for 1 to 3 days (the longer it sits, the stronger the flavor will get.) Strain out the solids before use.
