Semifreddo means "half cold" in Italian. Here it refers to the slushy mixture that brings texture and flavor to this classic Champagne cocktail. This would be a great cocktail to make on New Years Eve!
1 cup peeled, chopped peaches, frozen until hardened
1/4 cup peach schnapps
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chilled Champagne or sparkling white wine
2 tablespoons superfine sugar
1 cup small ice cubes
Peach slices, for garnish
Blend peaches, peach schnapps, 2 tablespoons Champagne, the sugar, and ice in a blender until smooth.
Divide mixture between 2 glasses
Top off each glass with 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of Champagne, and serve.
