Despite my Fazoli's cave-in (extra breadsticks and turtle cheesecake ordered) I remembered a most delicious low-calorie cocktail from Hungry-Girl's weekend episode on Food Network.
Big props to her - recipe and linkage in just a moment....
First let me tell you about my local Wal-Mart's after New Years Eve sale... sparkling wine for less than $6 in a bottle that has a resealable pressure cork. This is reason enough to try a new recipe!
Ok so sipping one (or three) as I post... here you go!!!!*

Half a 15-oz. can (about 1 cup) sliced peaches in juice, drained

Puree peaches in a small food processor or blender. Evenly distribute the puree among 8 champagne flutes, about 1 tablespoon each. Place two raspberries in each flute and top with the wine. Enjoy!
