Wasted Wednesday: Peachy Keen

Posted on

I really love peaches. A lot. I also love fruity cocktails. Not the neon pink “strawberry” margarita type (though they are tasty too), but cocktails made with gorgeous real fruit. Last summer I discovered an awesome peach slush, so when we bought a big bag of peaches at the farmer’s market last weekend, that’s what I first thought of.

I’ve lately developed a fondness for strong bourbon drinks however, so I decided to find a drink that, while showcasing the peaches, was full of bourbon. Oh, did I find it.

Peachy Keen (copied from here)

  • 3 parts (1.5 ounces)  bourbon
  • 2 parts (1 ounces) peach-honey liqueur
  • 1 part (.5 ounces) lemon juice
  • 2 peach slices, frozen (optional)
  1. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled glass. If using, place two frozen peach slices in the glass.

Number of servings: 1


Peach-Honey Liqueur

From DIY Cocktails

  • 2 parts (1/2 cup) water
  • 2 parts (1/2 cup) honey
  • 2 parts (1/2 cup) peeled and chopped peaches
  • 3 parts (3/4 cup) vodka
  1. Boil the water, honey, and peaches for about three minutes in a covered saucepan. Let it cool, strain out the solids, and refrigerate the liquid.
  2. Combine the vodka and the cooled peach mixture.
  3. Store in a bottle as you would other liqueur. Refrigeration isn’t necessary.

Yield: 1 cup
