Peach Inspiration – Cocktails

Peaches may be sweet but they can also carry a bit of a punch when used as inspiration for cocktails.

Perhaps the most well-known peach inspired cocktail is the Peach Bellini. Not only is it a classic but it is easy to make.

Rosemary Infused Peach Bellini:

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 yellow peaches
  • peach nectar
  • Angostura bitters
  • champagne or chilled sparkling wine
  • 6 rosemary sprigs

Method

  1. Thinly slice the peach (leave the skin on). Place one slice of peach on each of the 6 champagne flutes. Place one rosemary sprig in each of the 6 champagne flutes. Add enough peach nectar to come 1/3 way up the glass. Add a couple of drops of Angostura bitters. Top up glasses with champagne or chilled sparkling wine and serve immediately.

    The Peach Pie:

    Ingredients (serves 6)

    • 6 cups peaches
    • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 cups lime juice
    • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
    • 9 ozs rum
    • 6 cups ice (crushed)
    • 6 oz peach schnapps
    • 12 oz apricot brandy
    • honey

    Method

    1. Combine the peaches, lime juice, rum, schnapps, brandy, vanilla, and sugar in the blender until smooth. Slowly add the ice with the blender running and process until smooth. Poor into 6 chilled glasses, drizzle honey on top and serve immediately.

    Peach Lemonade Cooler:

    Ingredients (serves 6)

    • 3 medium-sized, ripe peaches, peeled, halved and pitted
    • 3 cups lemonade
    • 6 ounces vodka
    • 6 ounces peach schnapps

    Method

    1. Puree the peaches and lemonade in a blender until smooth.
    2. Mix vodka and peach schnapps together
    3. Pour vodka and schnapps mix over ice in a rocks glass.
    4. Top off with peach-lemonade puree.

    Hope you enjoy these peach inspired cocktails! I’m pretty sure as the weather warms, I will.

    Cheers,

    Laura
