I’ve never been a mixologist. I think I can count on one hand the number of times I made a mix drink that wasn’t just alcohol and soda. This weekend, I decided to take a stab at my first fancy cocktail. Instead of developing my own recipe I looked to a cocktail expert, Kelly of The Best Remedy, for inspiration. If you’ve never swung by her blog, you are missing out. The photography is gorgeous, and the recipes are something special. She features a lot of really beautiful drink recipes.
This particular cocktail, Just Peachy, was easy to make. I have no idea where my cocktail shaker went, so as you can see, I used a Tupperware container instead. It worked really well. The only thing I missed was a small strainer, so one of the two cocktails ended up all over our counter. The peach flavor is light and refreshing. For me, the vodka was a little strong, but as the ice melted, it mellowed and made for a great drink. Give it a try this weekend. It will help you stay cool in the heat.
