1 (750 mL) bottle dry white wine, such as pinot grigio
3/4 cup Grand Marnier
3/4 cup brandy
1 tbsp. sugar
3/4 lb (about 2 cups) white peaches, unpeeled, pitted and cubed
1 liter ginger ale, chilled
Combine first 4 ingredients in a 2-quart pitcher, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add peaches; cover and chill 1 hour.
Spoon peaches into bottom of wine glasses. Pour chilled wine mixture over peaches; top each serving with 1/4 cup ginger ale.
Note: Even Paula admits this drink packs a punch. For a less alcoholic version:
Combine 1/2 (750 mL) bottle of white wine with 1/4 cup Grand Marnier, 1/4 cup brandy and 1 tbsp. sugar. Add peaches; cover and chill 1 hour. Assemble servings as directed. Stir in 1 1/2 liters chilled ginger ale; serve immediately.
