Not exactly overrun with tomatoes yet, but I had a bunch of Green Zebras - plum-shaped tomatoes with green and yellow stripes - and the local peaches are just heaven-sent at the moment, so I trial and error-ed this white wine spritzer concoction. Rosemary and peach-infused simple syrup mixed with fresh ginger and ginger ale sweeten up those juicy zebras.

Not exactly overrun with tomatoes yet, but I had a bunch of Green Zebras - plum-shaped tomatoes with green and yellow stripes - and the local peaches are just heaven-sent at the moment, so I trial and error-ed this white wine spritzer concoction. Rosemary and peach-infused simple syrup mixed with fresh ginger and ginger ale sweeten up those juicy zebras.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 8" sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 1/2 lbs yellow peaches, quartered
  • 2 lb tomatoes, yellow or green varieties, halved
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cups white wine, I used Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2 cans ginger ale

Preparation

  1. In a pot over medium heat, dissolve sugar in the water with rosemary. Add peaches and cook until simmering, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool in the refrigerator for one hour or overnight (the latter will give you stronger peach and rosemary flavors).
  2. Meanwhile, puree tomatoes with ginger in a food processor. When the simple syrup is cooled, remove the peaches with a slotted spoon, add to tomatoes and puree again. Strain through a wire colander set over a bowl to remove the peach and tomato bits.
  3. To assemble the drink, fill a shaker with ice. Add 1/4 cup white wine, 1/3 cup ginger ale, 2 Tbsp simple syrup and 1/3 cup of the puree to the shaker. Mix well and serve in a wine glass with rosemary, tomatoes and/or peaches for garnish.
