  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar

  • 1 cup small ice cubes

  • Peach slices, for garnish


  1. Blend peaches, peach schnapps, 2 tablespoons Champagne, the sugar, and ice in a blender until smooth. Divide mixture between 2 glasses; top off each glass with 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Champagne, and serve.
