It's no wonder that August is National Peach Month what with all the beautiful specimens I'm finding in the market. Whether I intended to buy peaches or not, the sweet aroma pulls me in as soon as I walk past them. And while I stand there admiring, my mind races with possibilities for what to make. Pies, cakes, cobblers, fruit bars, ice creams, sorbets...I don't know where to begin.
But desserts aside, the whole world of summer cocktails is also filled with peachy possibilities. Brian actually has an easy time when you mention peaches and cocktails. He wants his beloved frozen peach daiquiris and he wants them all summer long. Not that I ever turn down his frozen creation but sometimes I want something simpler that doesn't require dragging out the blender. And this is it. It's a little sweet and a little tart and totally and completely peachy. Cheers!
