Sometimes Ya Just Gotta: Peach Melba Mimosas

Sometimes ya just gotta have that drink.....And the sweeter and slushier they are the better. This drink was so good, and it hit the spot right where I wanted it to go. Sometimes I need a break where I can just sit back and relax, enjoy conversation, and just not think of a single thought.

Do you ever have days like that? Days where you just want silence, hear yourself breathe, and not think of one single thing....just shut the brain down for at least an hour.

This drink hit the spot and did the trick.

Peach Melba Mimosas

1 1/2 c. thawed frozen raspberries
1/4 c. sugar
1 c. thawed frozen peaches
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice (I used the juice of half a lemon)
1 bottle Moscato wine

In a blender, puree frozen raspberries and 2 TBS sugar. Set a fine sieve over a small pitcher and strain puree; set aside (Make sure you do this step. I left it out and ended up with tons of seeds in the bottom of my glass.)
Then puree peaches with remaining sugar, lemon juice, and 3 TBS cold water.
Spoon 2 tsp. raspberry puree and 2 tsp. peach puree into each glass. Top off each cocktail with Moscato. We had very large wine glasses so we used more like 1/4 - 1/2 c. puree and filled up with Moscato.....what can I say? I needed a BIG drink....
