Summer isn’t summer without a glass of refreshing cocktail that accompanies you when you’re sitting on your porch and chatting with your friends. Irrespective of whether you’re a mint julep lover or fond of basil margarita, I’d highly recommend you to try this oh-so-summery drink. Served ice-cold in a Highball glass, this frozen peach old fashioned is the sipper you have been looking for.
You must be wondering what’s so unique about this Old Fashioned. Personally, I love the flavour of sweet, juicy peaches mixed with sweet peach sorbet and bourbon, my favourite is Smooth Ambler. Although this recipe is best when prepared with frozen peaches from the previous year's farmers' market, you can pick up a bag of frozen peaches from your local grocery store to simplify the process.
I add peach nectar as it brings out the juicy flavour of peaches while orange bitters enhance the richness of the bourbon. In case you’re still thinking if you should make this, let me tell you that it takes just 10 minutes to prepare this seasonal delight.
Now let’s check the list of ingredients you’ll need…
2 cups of frozen peach slices, slightly thawed
1 cup of bourbon
1 cup of peach nectar
1 cup of softened peach sorbet
1 tsp. of orange bitters
A pinch of kosher salt
1 to 3 tbsps. granulated sugar
Fresh mint sprigs and peach slices for garnishing
Pulse together frozen peach slices, bourbon, peach nectar and peach sorbet in a blender until combined. Once done, add the orange bitters and kosher salt and process until smooth. Then, add the sugar and stir well. Serve immediately.
Pretty simple? So, the next time you are craving for a glass of summer cocktail, try muddling up a quick batch of Frozen Peach Old Fashioned cocktail.
Whoever said Scotch is a difficult ingredient to mix in a cocktail may not have tasted the Blood and Sand before. Granted that Scotch by itself has distinctive, robust flavours that make for great conversations and parties. But a sip of this spiked, sweet, and citrusy liquid may pump up your spirits like nothing else.
