Serves 6 – Recipe sourced from Gourmet Traveller February 2012


"There's a touch of romance about this dessert. Perhaps it's the roses perhaps it's the white peaches, but what ever it is, this is one to make for your sweetheart. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead"


Ingredients
1.5 litres Pfeiffer Sparkling Pfizz White
295 grams (1 1/3 cups) caster sugar
Handful of fresh organic rose petals, plus extra to serve
6 firm ripe white peaches
