This summer sipper is made with fresh peach nectar and Kentucky bourbon! —garlic and zest
What You'll Need
for peach nectar
large peaches, peeled and sliced
for each cocktail
juice of 1/2 a lemon
slice of peach - fresh or from the sugared peaches
fresh lemon slice
For the peach simple syrup, peel, pit and slice the peaches. Transfer the peaches to a bowl and add the sugar. Toss to coat and set aside for one hour. Set a strainer over a bowl and pour the peaches into the strainer - to collect the peach simple syrup. Leftover peaches can be used in a fruit crisp or as a topping to ice cream or pound cake or in a homemade peach pie.
Add the bourbon, simple syrup, lemon juice and bitters to a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously until the cocktail is very cold and frothy, about 30 seconds. Pour into a cocktail glass and serve with a fresh peach wedge, slice of lemon and a maraschino cherry.
