summer stone fruit
– cherries, apricots, plums, nectarines, peaches
white (sweet) vermouth
such as Cinzano Bianco
dry white wine
such as sauvignon blanc
sparkling mineral water or soda water
lemon or lime juice cordial
Remove the stones from all the fruit except for the cherries. Chop the fruit into large dice and put into a large bowl or container. Pour over the vermouth and wine. Refrigerate 24 hours.
Just before serving, add the mineral water and then the cordial to taste.
Pour into a large jug (you may need two) and add ice to serve.
Don’t forget to remind your guests that the cherries still have their stones.
