- 1 bottle sparkling wine
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 vanilla bean
- 8 nectarines, halved
- In a large saucepan, bring the wine, sugar, honey, and cinnamon stick to a boil. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and pod to the saucepan.
- Add the nectarines and enough water to cover them. Simmer gently until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the nectarines to a large bowl.
- Simmer the liquid until reduced to 1 cup, 12 to 15 minutes. Discard the vanilla pod. Pour the liquid over the nectarines. Refrigerate until chilled, 50 to 60 minutes.
