Y’all, I’m not going to lie…between wedding planning, working a 9-5 job, working on various blog related projects, and managing a booth space, it is all driving me to drink!  I was getting tired of the same ole glass of wine or bottle of beer and wanted to create something new.  I just did some experimenting and created this special bev that I think is the perfect refreshing summer drink.  I love being able to incorporate the basil from my garden, as well as Georgia peaches!  It’s also a healthier cocktail option since I use club soda instead of tonic (at least that’s what I tell myself, haha).

Basil & Peach Cocktail

Prep Time: 5 minutes

5 minutes

Yield: 2

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Vodka
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 4 oz. Club Soda
  • 1 Peach
  • 12 Basil Leaves

Instructions

You'll want to cut the peach into slices and then muddle with basil. Then add the vodka, cointreau, and club soda and stir. I would let this sit for at least 10 minutes before serving for the flavors to fuse together. Garnish with basil.

I used white peaches, but you can use any kind.

I don’t have a muddler, but I just use the back of a wood spoon and it works just fine 🙂

I love this pitcher we got on our last trip to St. Augustine.  There is a great store in Old Town called Market to Market we always go to.  All of the pieces are handmade and painted, which we love!
