Ingredients
  

  • 4 fresh plums
  • 6-8 small sprigs thyme leaves only
  • 1 x 750ml bottle sparkling white wine

Instructions
 

  • Peel, slice and remove the stones from the plums.
  • Remove the leaves from 6 small sprigs and add to the plum pieces.
  • Blend until smooth using either a blender or immersion blender.
  • 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.
  • Strain the puree through a sieve to remove the lumps and bits.
  • Pour approx 45ml (one jigger or 3 tbsp) of the plum puree into the bottom of a glass.
  • Gently and slowly pour the wine over the top; do this slowly and carefully as it will fizz. Stir gently.
  • Serve and enjoy immediately.
