peach slush

July 22nd, 2011

I’ve implemented new rules in our house. When the temperature reaches above 90°, all drinks must be slushes. Preferably with bourbon. Hence the peach slush. It’s easy, it’s delicious and it’ll keep you cool.

Cheers! To not melting!

Peach Slush

makes 3-4 cocktails
2 peaches, pitted and roughly sliced
3 ounces simple syrup
juice of 1 lemon, about 1.5 ounces
2 cups ice
1/4 cup bourbon, optional (replace with water if not using)
1/4 cup water
1. Toss it all in a blender and blend until smooth.

2. Serve with a straw and enjoy!

    I have two peaches from my CSA this week. Pretty sure that’s getting made TONIGHT.

    I think you may have just out done yourself! On a “cheater” note: Absolut Mango and Trader Joe’s Organic Mango Lemonade with a splash of sparkling water. Yum!

    Oh my! I just got a fresh bottle of bourbon last night – I am going to have to try this later today!

    I like the cheater note above, I was thinking just trying peach nectar and bourbon to make this even easier- hah! sounds like a great drink!

    To not melting! Love it. This is the second peach recipe I’ve come across this morning… I must go hunt some down at the farmers’ market.
