6 medium-size white peaches, halved, pitted, each half cut into 4 wedges

2 pints peach ice cream (Ben and Jerry’s peach cobbler ice cream is perfect)

¾ cup creme de cassis (black-currant liqueur) plus additional for drizzling

2 cups chilled prosecco or other sparkling wine (brut Champagne if you’re feeling flush)

 


 

1. Place 3 peach wedges in the bottom of each of 6 tall glasses. Top with 1 scoop ice cream, then another 3 peach wedges. Add a second scoop of ice cream and top with 2 more peach wedges.

2. Drizzle each with 2 tablespoons creme de cassis. Pour 1/3 cup Champagne into each glass, top with 1 scoop ice cream, drizzle additional creme de cassis and serve.
