It's Friday, so of course I made you a cocktail again. I have decided that since it's summer and the heat is out of control that the least I can do is make you a refreshing drink every week, I mean that's just the kinda girl I am. And the peaches at the farmer's market right now have been so dang sweet and juicy that I couldn't resist making another cocktail with them. This peach mojito is going to make you very happy and it's the perfect refreshing drink when it's a thousand degrees outside.
I was reading one of my favorite foodie bloggers Heather Christo, when I stumbled upon her nectarine mojito (she has gorgeous cocktails) and I immediately realized that I need to make a peach mojito! Genius. And turns out the flavor combo of peach, lime, mint, and rum is dynamite! The peaches were so sweet, that I only had to add agave to sweeten the drink ever so slightly, which means you don't have to feel bad about drinking more than one...
By now, maybe you have made my peach and blueberry sangria (if not that's ok you still can), and now you will have to try my peach mojito! It's ready in a jiff, looks super fancy, and is so delicious! Even Canean who isn't a mojito connoisseur like myself, but loves him some peaches, ended up loving this drink!
Listen, make it tonight...make it tomorrow, I don't care as long as you make it!
- 3 Peaches (2 for puree and 1 for garnish)
- 3 Limes, Sliced
- Soda Water
- 2-3 Oz. Rum
- About 8-10 Mint Leaves
- 2 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
- Peel and pit two peaches and puree with 1 Tbsp water.
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle together the peach puree, lime slices, and mint leaves and agave nectar. If you don't have a muddler, you can use the back of a wooden spoon. You just want to mash everything together releasing the mint flavor and lime juice.
- Add rum and shake vigorously.
- Fill two glasses with ice, pour the peach and rum mixture equally over the two glasses.
- Top off with soda water, stir, and garnish with extra mint leaves, a squeeze of lime and peach slices.
Cheers to Friday and cheers to you!
P.S. If your peaches aren't super sweet, just add more agave!
