Total time: 10 minutes | Serves 1
  • 1 white peach
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 4 ounces chilled
  • Prosecco
  • 1 dash peach bitters

Step 1In a blender, puree the peeled, seeded peach. Set aside.

Step 2In a pint glass, hand press 2 thyme sprigs with a muddler. Add 1 ounce of the peach puree, the simple syrup, the Prosecco and the bitters.

Step 3Fill the glass with ice. Stir swiftly for 30 seconds.

Step 4Strain into a flute. Garnish with the remaining thyme sprig.

Note: From Ryan Magarian for Katsuya. Make a simple syrup by boiling granulated sugar in an equal amount of water until the sugar dissolves; allow to cool. One peach makes enough puree for four drinks.
