The Frida Cocktail
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • 4 fresh plums
  • 6-8 small sprigs thyme (leaves only)
  • 1 x 750ml bottle sparkling white wine
  1. Peel, slice and remove the stones from the plums.
  2. Remove the leaves from 6 small sprigs and add to the plum pieces.
  3. Blend until smooth using either a blender or immersion blender.
  4. Taste - the thyme flavour should be present but not overpowering; add the leaves from another one or two thyme sprigs if necessary and blend again briefly.
  5. Strain the puree through a sieve to remove the lumps and bits.
  6. Pour approx 45ml (one jigger or 3 tbsp) of the plum puree into the bottom of a glass.
  7. Gently and slowly pour the wine over the top; do this slowly and carefully as it will fizz. Stir gently.
  8. Serve and enjoy immediately.
