  • 1 peach, pitted and cut into 24 thin wedges
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 bottles (750 ml each) Champagne, or sparkling apple cider or grape juice


  1. Put peach wedges in a shallow 9-by-9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar, and drizzle with lemon juice; toss gently to coat. Refrigerate until peach wedges release their juice, about 1 hour.
  2. Place a peach wedge in each glass, and fill with Champagne, cider, or juice.
