Recipe: Frozen Peach Old Fashioned
Calling all bourbon lovers! Summer isn't summer without a nice cold glass of your favorite cocktail to accompany a little porch sittin' and chatting with friends. Whether you're a classic Southern sweet tea gal or a Mint Julep belle, we'd highly recommend expanding the recipes on your bar cart to include this oh-so-summery beverage. Served ice-cold in a tall glass (of course!), this refreshing peach cocktail is the summer sipper that you've been looking for. We love the flavors of sweet, juicy peaches mixed with sweet peach sorbet and premium Kentucky bourbon. Although the recipe is best when made with frozen peaches from last year's farmers' market haul, you can easily pick up a bag of frozen peaches at your local grocery to simplify the process. We've also added in peach nectar to bring out some of that sweet, juicy peach flavor. Orange Bitters give the recipe some richness and depth, and highlight the bourbon. In case you need any more convincing, this Southern drink recipe only takes 10 minutes to pull together. So – next time you're reaching for a glass, try whipping up a quick batch of Frozen Peach Old Fashioned cocktails.
To start the recipe, you'll need to gather some ingredients. This Frozen Peach Old Fashioned recipe will yield around 8 servings – or four, if you're thirsty! Grab two cups of frozen peach slices that are slightly thawed, a cuppa bourbon, a cuppa peach nectar, a cuppa peach sorbet, a dash of orange bitters, a pinch of kosher salt (this brings out the sweetness–trust us!), some superfine sugar, and fresh mint springs to garnish your glasses. Pulse together the frozen peaches, bourbon, peach nectar, and sorbet in a blender 4 or 5 times until smooth and combined. Add in the bitters and salt, and pulse 30-45 times until smooth. Stir in the superfine sugar, and serve immediately with a few slices of fresh peaches and a sprig or two of mint. Your taste buds (and your guests' taste buds!) will be thrilled. Cheers, y'all!
