Peach Mint Julep

This being the end of summer, we’ve got a lot of peaches and mint on hand, two flavors that go great together. So DIY Cocktails and I decided to make a Peach Mint Julep.

The recipe is for one drink, but it would be great to make a pitcher and drink them on a rocking chair on a porch, Southern style.


Peach Mint Julep

Ingredients:

    1 peeled peach
    3/4 ounce simple syrup
    3 sprigs mint
    2 ounces bourbon
    Sparkling water or tonic water
    Crushed ice


Directions:

Peel the peach. Cut into sections and remove the pit. (If you can’t get fresh peaches, frozen peaches should work well too.)

Strip the mint leaves off the mint sprig and discard the stem.

Combine mint, peaches, simple syrup, and bourbon in a cocktail shaker. Thoroughly muddle until the peach is smashed and has released its juices.

Pour into a glass and put a layer of crushed ice on top. Top with sparkling water. Enjoy!
