What to do with a juicy ripe peach? Make this yummy Bourbon Peach Cocktail of course!
As I’ve said before, I’m not a big whiskey/bourbon fan but I do enjoy it doctored up a bit with other flavors. This cocktail is a bit similar to my Whiskey Ginger Cocktail. Today I muddled half a juicy ripe peach with a few mint leaves and brown sugar simple syrup, shook it all up with some bourbon and topped it off with a splash of ginger beer. It’s a delicious, refreshing cocktail and a great way to eat your peaches!Print
Bourbon Peach Cocktail
- 2 oz. bourbon
- 1 oz. simple syrup*
- 1/2 ripe peach
- about 4 or 5 mint leaves
- splash of ginger beer
*I made a brown sugar simple syrup by combining 1 cup brown sugar with 1 cup water and bringing it to a boil. Let cool and store in refrigerator. Read more about making simple syrup here. You could also use regular simple syrup or maple syrup.
