Author Notes: My husband loves mint and peaches, which inspired me to create this breezy cocktail. It includes Lillet, which is a light, citrusy aperitif. Perfect to enjoy on warm, lazy summer evenings! —BlueKaleRoad
Food52 Review: The citrus and bitter notes of Lillet work perfectly with the peach and mint in this refreshing summer beverage. The honey's flavor melds well with the other ingredients, and the peach bits add a fruit-salad-in-a-drink quality to it. We used about 1 cup of club soda in each cocktail, and then promptly started dreaming about drinking it on a porch swing. —The Editors
very ripe peaches, peeled and diced
cup fresh mint, roughly chopped plus extra to garnish
cup fresh lime juice
ounces Lillet Blanc, chilled
Club soda to top off
- In a bowl, combine the peaches, mint and honey and muddle with the handle of a wooden spoon. Leave to macerate for 15 minutes or so.
- Pull out 4 pretty cocktail glasses or Mason jars. Add 1 tablespoon lime juice to each, followed by 2 ounces of Lillet each. Divide the peach mixture evenly between the glasses. Stir to mix. Add a few ice cubes to each and top off with club soda. Garnish with mint leaves. Cheers!
