Sparkling Nectarine & Honey Cocktail

This simple sparkling drink is a very light and refreshing end of summer cocktail. It can easily be diluted with club soda or seltzer, to taste.

The recipe was adapted from drinkoftheweek.com. IĀ used a white nectarine and lemon seltzer instead of club soda. The original recipe also suggests using plums, peaches, cherries, or apricots instead of nectarines.

Yield: One drink

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz honey syrup (half honey, half warm water)(I used Italian Melata di Bosca honey)
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 nectarine, sliced, plus more for garnish
  • club soda or lemon seltzer
  • fresh mint, for garnish, optional
  1. Muddle the nectarine slices in the honey syrup.
  2. Add the vodka and lemon juice and stir.
  3. Top with ice and club soda or seltzer.
  4. Garnish with nectarine slices and/or mint, as desired.
