Smashing up some peaches and adding a little booze makes for a damn fine drink! This simple recipe is light enough for summer but has a great whiskey kick.
This recipe uses a mellow blended scotch, but Canadian or Irish whiskey would also work well.
- ½ of a ripe, yellow peach in chunks
- 4 mint leaves
- 1 lemon wedge
- ½ oz Cointreau
- 1 ½ to 2 oz blended scotch whisky
Muddle the peach, lemon and Cointreau in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add ice and the scotch, then shake. Strain into old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Add peach slices and mint for garnish.
