A delicious peach apéritif from the south of France is now available here. RinQuinQuin (that’s ran-kan-KAN with a nasal twang—much easier to say after a few sips, by the way) is French for “little treat” or “pick-me-up.” Which says it exactly, because sipping Rinquinquin is pure refreshment: heady peach aromas trailed by citrusy-peach flavors and a delightfully dry finish. Serve it chilled—straight up, on the rocks, or cut with soda.
RinQuinQuin is great along with olives, salted nuts, and savory crackers. Or try it in cooking: stir a tablespoon or two into a pan sauce, or splash it over fruit salad or vanilla ice cream. A bottle is about $14; check your local wine store, or visit Crillon Importers for more information on where to buy.
