Rach's husband John makes a summery spritzer cocktail using stone fruit.
"I call this the Stone Cold Fruit Spritzer, because it's made with apricots, which are a stone fruit," John says. Plums, nectarines and peaches are other types of stone fruit—named for the pit or "stone" in the center
- 1 fresh apricot, pitted
- 1 ½ to 3 ounces vodka
- 1 ½ to 3 ounces elderflower liqueur (John likes St-Germain)
- 1 ½ to 3 ounces rosé wine
- Apricot blossoms, for garnish (optional)
In a cocktail shaker, muddle apricot, then add vodka, elderflower liqueur, rose, and ice. Cover, shake vigorously, and strain into 2 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with apricot blossoms. Top with club soda or seltzer and stir.
Always drink responsibly.
