Peachy with a little bite of ginger and cool, refreshing mint. Divine.
2 shots Absolute peach vodka
3/4 – 1 shot Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
5 frozen peach slices, thawed, or fresh if you have juicy ripe peaches
5 (or more) mint leaves
splash of mint infused simple syrup
1/2 lime, juiced
For the simple syrup
1 C water
1 C sugar
1 bunch mint
Combine water, sugar and mint (chopped up) in saucepan. Bring to boil until sugar melts. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain syrup when cool to remove mint. Store in refrigerator.
Muddle peaches and mint leaves in cocktail shaker with a generous splash of simple syrup. I like to add a bit of crushed ice to help break up the peaches and mint when muddling. Add vodka, ginger liqueur, and lime juice and shake well. Strain into chilled martini glass.
*adjust the amount of ginger liqueur to your liking.
