6 peaches (or ripe pears or plums, depending on availability)
½ cup amaretto
Sliced toasted almonds
Chopped fresh mint
Cut peaches in slices.
In a bowl, mix amaretto and sugar with the sliced peaches, almonds and mint. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
Serve in martini glasses.
* Lauren’s note: If substituting oranges or grapefruit for peaches, try using a different liqueur as well – one with citrus notes, such as Grand Marnier.
