Feeling fancy? Our Summeripe White Nectarine, ginger, and thyme champagne cocktail is the perfect drink for summer celebrations or a rejuvenating Sunday brunch.



  • 3 Summeripe White Nectarines (or Peaches), sliced + 1 for garnish
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup honey or agave nectar
  • 1 large chunk (about 1 inch) ginger, peeled and sliced
  • Handful of fresh thyme sprigs + more for garnish
  • 1 bottle of your favorite champagne or sparkling wine


  1. In a saucepan combine water and honey over medium-to-medium high heat and bring to a light boil. Turn the heat down and stir until honey dissolves completely.
  2. Add in Summeripe White Nectarines slices, ginger, and thyme sprigs. Simmer for 5-7 minutes then remove thyme sprigs. Continue to simmer the Summeripe White Nectarines and ginger until liquid had reduced by about 1/3, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Strain the liquid into to a large mason jar. Discard the ginger.
  5. To assemble drink, place a fresh Summeripe White Nectarine slice into a champagne flute and add 1-2 tablespoons of the Summeripe White Nectarine-ginger-thyme simple syrup. Pour in champagne and enjoy!


  • This recipe makes more Summeripe White Nectarine-ginger-thyme simple syrup than what is needed for 12 cocktails. Store the extra simple syrup in the refrigerator
