Muddle peach slices with the simple syrup. add the gin and liqueur and stir until chilled. Double strain into champagne flute or cocktail glass and top with sparking white wine. Garnish with another peach slice.

Peach season is quickly approaching and nothing reminds me more of summer than fresh, juicy peaches. I love to add pepper to most of my fruits and thought a drink that does the same would be divine.
