Tamara's Delicious Peaches, Sauternes and Lavender - Perfect for Summer!

Tamara is a brilliant pastry chef and I was lucky enough to be in France with her this Summer where she shared her delicious Peaches recipe. The Syrup she created was so good that we ended up mixing it with soda water and creating a cocktail!

Sauternes is a French sweet wine from the Sauternais region of the Graves section in Bordeaux. It is coppery in colouring with common flavor notes including apricots, honey and peaches. With a brilliant balance of sweetness and acidity, this is a must try.

6-8 Big Juicy Peaches, peeled and sliced
500ml Sauternes (or enough to cover them)
2-3 stems of Lavender
Soda and Ice for the Cocktail

Simply marinate the peach slices in 500ml of Sauternes and 2-3 stems of lavender. Cover with Cling film and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours. Perfect on its own or with cream. With the left over syrup simply add ice and soda water, for the perfect summer cocktail!
