Chandon Riche On Fire
Like players in a jazz ensemble, each ingredient in this cocktail stands out on its own, while working in perfect harmony with the others. Chandon Extra-Dry Riche, our slightly sweet sparkler, sets an effervescent rhythm. Notes of fresh peach are punctuated by staccato bursts of lime and chili. By turns hot and cool, this cocktail is a true original.
Ingredients for 1 cocktail
1.5 oz peach purée (recipe follows) or Perfect Purées Peach*
½ lime, juiced, plus a wedge to rim the glass
8–10 dashes hot chili sauce such as Siracha*
Chili lime salt such as Tejan*
Chandon Extra-Dry Riche
Ingredients for purée:
6 large peaches (preferably white)
Instructions for purée:
Peel and pit the peaches, then coarsely chop. Purée in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve to remove all solids.
Instructions for cocktail:
Run a lime wedge around the rim of your martini glass. Pour the chili lime salt on a plate and coat the rim of the glass, shaking off excess. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add peach purée, hot sauce, lime juice and a splash of Riche. Shake vigorously. Gently add enough Chandon Riche to the shaker for 1 cocktail. Strain into rimmed Martini glass and serve.
