Summer has bestowed itself upon us. It’s hot. This is a wonderfully light and refreshing cocktail perfect to sip on while basking in the sun. It’s made from fresh white peaches, peach infused vodka, and a hint of lime.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make the peach purée in advance. It will keep in the fridge for a couple of days, or you can pop it into the freezer in ice cube trays. Seeking out peach vodka is definitely a must. It really enhances the natural flavor of the white peach (you can always substitute with regular vodka, but it won’t quite taste the same!)
Make a big batch of this cooler for your next barbecue party and you’ll have friends for life.
Now if I could only get that inground pool…Print

I can’t wait for decent peaches to come in to the farmers market to try this out!
Tell me about it! They’re almost as bad as tomatoes these days…Hope you can get your hands on some :)
That looks wonderfully refreshing! A recipe to stash away for when the peaches are in season here! (Or if our white peach tree ever fruits again.. :))
Oh yes, it’s very refreshing. We’re having an incredibly hot and muggy summer so it gets the job done nicely! Now let’s hope that peach tree of yours fruits again! :)
