With summer just around the corner, I begin to think about clam bakes on the beach and evening cocktail parties on the deck. I always look for new cocktail recipes that I can use as a signature drink. Having a signature drink at a cocktail party is fun to create and share something new for my guests.
There are a lot of recipes for a beachy Southern Belle Cocktail. Many use mostly bourbon, but I’m an Irish girl that loves her Irish Whiskey and it’s smooth taste.
Although I can’t host a party during this time of covid lockdown, I’m still able to sit out on the deck and watch the sunsets sipping a great tasting cocktail and listening to cocktail jazz.
Southern Peach Belle
- 1½ ounces Jameson Whiskey or Redemption Bourbon (depending on how strong or smooth you like your drinks.)
- ¼ of a fresh peach pieces
- ¾ ounce lemon juice
- 4 ounces sweet iced tea
- Add peach slices and spring of mint for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, muddle together the whiskey or Bourbon and fresh peach pieces.
Add the lemon juice and tea, put the top on the shaker, and shake well. Strain into a rock glass filled with ice.
