You can use 12 fresh apricots, halved, in place of the canned ones. They're in season in June.
2 (15-ounce) cans apricot halves, drained
2 (11.5-ounce) cans apricot nectar
1/2 cup sugar
1 (750-milliliter) bottle sparkling wine or Champagne, chilled*
Garnish: fresh mint sprigs
How to Make It
Process half each of first 3 ingredients in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Repeat with remaining apricot halves, nectar, and sugar. Serve over crushed ice with sparkling wine. Garnish, if desired.
*2 (12-ounce) cans ginger ale or lemon-lime soda may be substituted.
Note: You can stir together the apricot mixture and the sparkling wine in a pitcher. Be sure and do this just before serving.
