This drink is somewhat similar to a mimosa, but is a bit more elegant and the flavors are more subtle. It is a nice refreshing brunch drink to serve with foods like eggs, breakfast casseroles, pancakes, or waffles.
It is a quick and easy way to dress up a brunch or luncheon and make it a bit more memorable.
Traditionally an Italian or Spanish sparkling wine like Prosecco or Cava Brut is used for this cocktail, as they are not as sweet when combined with the peach nectar. A French champagne tends to be a bit sweeter and thus produces a sweeter drink.
For a non-alcoholic version, try substituting ginger ale in place of the sparkling wine and omitting the peach schnapps.
