Peach season is approaching & there are few things I love better than stone fruit cocktails. Between stone fruit sangria, peach & basil gin + tonics, lavender peach bellinis, and now this insanely delicious peach bourbon smash – your summer is about to get a whole lot sweeter!
Even if you aren’t typically a fan of fruit based cocktails, the bourbon buffs up this beauty & the fresh thyme gives her a hint of an herbal taste. The combination is undeniably delicious and the best part is that it takes less than 5 minutes to make!
- 2 oz. Bourbon
- Juice of a lemon
- Dash of simple syrup
- Ripe peach
- A few sprigs fresh thyme
- Add your bourbon, lemon juice, & simple syrup to your cocktail shaker.
- Cut your peach in half & squeeze the non-pit side into the shaker. Get all that good juice & pulp your can muster. Strip a few sprigs of your thyme leaves into the shaker as well.
- Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds & pour into a bourbon glass over ice.
- Garnish with a wedge of peach & a sprig of thyme
So, what do you think? Ready to run out and get yourself some peaches? We’re stalking our local farmers market for a good haul & when it’s time, these peach bourbon smash will be on repeat all summer long!
