  • 1/2 pint fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream

  • 1/4 cup Chambord
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish


Combine nectarine slices, raspberries and sugar in a small bowl and mash with a fork.
Add scoops of ice cream to 4 large glasses and divide most of the nectarine and raspberry puree among the glasses. Top each with a few more scoops of ice cream then the remaining puree.
