  1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, basil leaves, half of the peach nectar and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, crushing the basil leaves with the back of a spoon to release their flavor. Simmer just long enough to melt the sugar, then remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Strain the basil mixture into a pitcher filled with ice cubes. Pour in wine and remaining peach nectar. Stir briefly and serve.

I was looking for a light/refreshing/fruity cocktail to serve at a party and I found this one. The basil is not overpowering, but a very nice complement to the fruit in this drink. Sometimes it ...

I was really disappointed with this recipe. It was too sweet and "syrupy". I would not have used all the peach nectar or nearly that much sugar. I did however like the basil flavor.

This was really good - I only used 1/2 the sugar called for in the recipe and I used apricot nectar instead (all I had).

Suprisingly delicious combo. Had this at a friends party, loved it and have now made it twice myself. Everyone LOVES this. I used a little less sugar than the recipe calls for and a litle more w...
