Drink of the Day: Peach Melba

January 11, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Hope everyone is having a relaxing and beneficial weekend.  Here we are, back to a Sunday, where midday is known for amazing brunches.  Not only do you have a nice selection to choose from when it comes to food, the Champagne drinks are a nice companion to these.  Here’s a cream cocktail that would go quite well as the final course to your meal; a great way to finish off the festivities at any sitting.

The Peach Melba Cocktail is very easy to make, involving only three ingredients.  The combination of raspberry and peach go quite well with the cream and are a perfect substitution for that high-calorie dessert at the end of your meal. Put the forks away, folks.  Your sweet tooth will be completely satisfied with this after-dinner beverage.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Cheers!
