Gingered Peach Bourbon Thyme Smash
I mean, I mean?! Seriously, how good does that sound? It feels so southern, right? Loving it!
Speaking of feeling southern, guys, I’m in a southern sort of mood. I believe oahu is the season, I’m loving all of these beautiful peaches, tomatoes, and corn that appear to be surrounding me. These special fruits and veggies specifically always make me consider southern delicacies (hello to the sandwich, this salad, and these shortcakes)…I’m most certainly not complaining though!
OKAY! First, happy Saturday to everyone. Glad to be back today for another fun cocktail Saturday post. I’ve had this drink in my back pocket for quite some time now, so I’m pretty excited to be sharing it with you guys today. This feels like late summer in a cocktail glass. The peaches are the right ripeness during these mid August days and I’m trying my hardest to incorporate peaches into pretty much everything…ok I don’t really should try very hard, using peaches in everything is really a pretty easy task for me.
Anyway, this fun peachy bourbon drink is my new obsession. I’ve been making them weekly on Friday nights for friends and family and everybody loves them. Like LOVES them.Print
