We’ve been celebrating National Peach Month all throughout August, but today is extra special - it’s National Peach Day (and Thirsty Thursday, hello!). We’ve gathered up some peach cocktail recipes for y’all - with our own special twist - to toast to this sweet Southern fruit.
Sweet Savannah Peach
Being a local Savannah business, it’s important to us to support other local businesses whenever we can. The vodka for this recipe is from Ghost Coast Distillery - Savannah’s first distillery since just before prohibition. How cool is that?
3 tablespoons vodka - we used Ghost Coast, but you can use your favorite brand
3 tablespoons peach schnapps
2 tablespoons peach nectar
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, peach schnapps, peach nectar, and lemon juice with ice; shake well. Strain into glass; garnish with peach slice. For an extra-sweet punch of flavor, use Peach flavored Kiss My Grits Scrub to rim the glass before garnishing. The salty-sweet flavor is the perfect complement to this recipe. Yum!
Firefly Fuzz-tea Naval
We’re from the South, and southerners LOVE sweet iced tea. Enjoy this peachy twist on a classic refreshing beverage.
