We recommend zesty Spanish albariño, but you can use any other refreshing white wine.
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brandy
2 1/2 cups pitted Rainier cherries
1 (750-milliliter) bottle albariño wine, chilled
1 cup chilled club soda
1 peach, thinly sliced
3 thyme sprigs
1 sprig purple basil (optional)
1 sprig sweet basil (optional)
How to Make It
Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup brandy in a pitcher; stir until sugar dissolves. Add cherries and wine, and chill for 8 hours or up to overnight. Just before serving, stir in club soda and remaining ingredients.
