Served this with New Year's Dinner. Everyone loved it! It was light enough to have a few, but also very tasty! Followed the recipe exactly as written. Used just cheap dry red wine. Can't wait for summer so we can try the white version!
Peach nectar is a sweet, intensely flavored drink that's usually sold on the international food aisle, with the fruit juices, or with the cocktail mixes.
