It’s peach season – YAAAAAYYYYY!!!
I love peaches. Peach was my favorite color in childhood. Peach was Jr’s first “favorite food” (well, peach puree, but still. ) Peach ice cream and peach cobbler are both long-standing family obsessions traditions on my mom’s side.
Peach is the reason that boring no-carb Keri has been tamped out, releasing EAT-ALL-THE-THINGS Keri back into the kitchen to whip up more deliciousness to share with you.
Peach is just Peachy to me.
So are adult beverages.
Put them together and you have sure-fire Keri Bait… and something that is sure perk up your waning days of summer.
WHAT YOU NEED
– 2 ounces vodka
– 1 very ripe peach
– 1 lemon wedge
– sparkling water (I like the lemon lime variety )
WHAT YOU DO
-Peel and slice the peach into a shaker (or other sturdy container)
-Add vodka and squeeze lemon wedge to release the juice into the cup as well. (You can muddle with the lemon in the shaker for extra lemon flavor if you’d like)
-muddle like crazy (seriously – Searching for that perfect gift for Keri? Get her a muddler!)
– pour into ice-filled glass and top with the fizzy water – you can strain it if you like, but I wouldn’t dream of wasting those fabulous peachy bits!!
*Some optional additions or variations, should the mood strike you: a sprig of mint or or a drizzle of honey before muddling; substituting lime for the lemon; or switching out the vodka for bourbon (mmmm, peach and bourbon – yes please! )
Cheers to squeezing the last bright, glorious, beautiful bits out of summer!!
