Oh my… this drink is summer incarnate.
I got a bunch of delicious local white peaches for Nora to snack on recently, and I stole one the other day to make a batch of margaritas. After a little tweaking, it was perfection, and it’s the closest you can come to a drink straight from the farm. No processed ick,* just booze and fruit. Gotta love that!
* Well, sugar in the simple syrup, but at least it’s organic! I read an article recently that suggested agave syrup as a substitute. I’ll have to try that out.
I may or may not have dumped the whole thing over ice into an insulated cup and taken it to the pool with me.
In any case, it was delicious. Try one ASAP!
White Peach Margarita
Makes 2 servings
2 ripe white peaches, quartered and pits removed
1 oz simple syrup
2 oz silver tequila
1 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
1 oz Grand Marnier or Cointreau
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree. Serve over plenty of ice, or add a big handful to the blender if you’re feeling a frozen ‘rita.**
** I’m an on-the-rocks purist, though.
