Ingredients

2 cups sugar

1 cup water

1 (16-ounce) bag frozen peaches, thawed

1 teaspoon grated orange peel

1 (16-ounce) bag frozen strawberries, thawed

1 (16-ounce) bag frozen blueberries or blackberries, thawed

4 to 6 (750-ml) bottles Prosecco or other sparkling wine, chilled

Fresh strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, for garnish

Orange peel twists, for garnish

Directions

  1. Stir the sugar and water in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Puree the peaches and orange peel in a blender with 1/2 cup of the sugar syrup until smooth. Strain through a fine-meshed strainer and into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate. In a clean blender puree the strawberries with 1/3 cup of the sugar syrup until smooth. Strain through a clean fine-meshed strainer and into another bowl. Discard the seeds. Puree the blueberries in a clean blender with 1/3 cup of the sugar syrup until smooth. Strain through a clean fine-meshed strainer and into a third bowl. Discard the seeds and solids. Pour each of the purees into clear glass bowls or small pitchers.
  3. For each serving, pour 2 to 4 tablespoons of the desired fruit puree into a Champagne flute. Slowly pour enough Prosecco into the flute to fill. Gently stir to blend. Garnish with the whole berries, as desired, and serve.
  4. Do-Ahead Tip: The fruit purees can each be made 1 day ahead. Cover separately and refrigerate.
