Coming back to this thread three years after the fact to say that our Farawayfriend just blessed us with one of the truly fascinating concepts in wine cocktails I have ever seen!!!Ooops, I'm late to the party, but I'm bringing something to drink.
A 1950s/1960s party favourite: "Kullerpfirsich" (= Rolling peach). Those of you who were in Germany at that time might still remember it. It was regarded as something very glamourous

1 fresh ripe peach
0.37 l / 14.25 oz sparkling wine
Wash and pad dry a ripe peach. Pierce the peach all around with a fork, several times. Put in a large, globe like glass. Fill up with ice cold sparkling wine. It is important for the sparkling wine to be very cold. Otherwise the peach is not rolling around. The peach should have enough space to move around freely. Serve immediately. The peach starts rolling around itself. It stops if all the carbon dioxide from the sparkling wine is exhausted. Serve with small spoons and forks and a dessert plate.
