1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup sliced peaches, skins left on
1 cup sliced plums, skins left on
1 cup cherries, stemmed and pitted
1/2 cup peach brandy
1 (750 ml) bottle dry Riesling, chilled
1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water, and heat just until the sugar is dissolved to make a simple sugar syrup. Place the peaches, plums, and cherries in a large pitcher and pour the sugar syrup over top.
2. Add the peach brandy and stir. Add the cold Riesling and chill until ready to serve, ideally overnight. When ready to serve, fill the rest of the pitcher with ice.
3. Serve over ice, being sure to serve some of the stone fruit in each glass.
