Minty Peach Cooler

July 3, 2012

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
