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

  1. Freeze riesling in a pint-sized jar.
  2. Once frozen, allow to thaw slightly until the texture is just slushy.
  3. Stir in vodka and lemon juice until fully incorporated.
  4. Garnish with fresh peach slices.

Peach-Infused Vodka:
300ml vodka
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.
