Luxury Peach 75

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

Peach puree and fresh tarragon flavor this summery riff on the French 75. The cocktail is terrific with fresh thyme, too.

  1. 2 tarragon sprigs
  2. Ice
  3. 1 ounce gin
  4. 1/2 ounce Cognac
  5. 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  6. 2 tablespoons peach puree (see Note)
  7. 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
  8. 1/2 ounce chilled brut Champagne
  1. Tear 1 tarragon sprig and drop it into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and the gin, Cognac, lemon juice, peach puree and simple syrup and shake well. Fine-strain into a chilled coupe. Top with the Champagne and garnish with the remaining tarragon sprig.
Notes Les Vergers Boiron and the Perfect Purée of Napa Valley (perfectpuree.com)both make high-quality fruit purees, including a peach variety. They’re available online and at specialty food stores.
