Stone fruit and almonds are perfect complements in savory food; here we bring that pairing together with nectarine purée and almond liqueur for a welcome update to a classic cocktail.

Game plan: The nectarine purée can be made up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated in a covered container. It makes 1/2 cup, enough for 4 cocktails.
