Peach margaritas

Now this is how to eat fruit

Baby, it’s hot outside.

Peach margaritas

  • 4 peaches, skinned and pitted
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce peach schnapps
  • 1 cup tequila
  • juice from half a lime
  • ice

Place ingredients in blender with several handfuls of ice. Blend until smooth and pour in margarita glasses. Garnish with lime or peach slices.

Peaches not your thing? Check out our classic margarita or head over to Sweet Caroline’s who posted margarita with lime zest earlier this week.

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

  2. ChefMom says:

    Perfect! Nuf said.

  3. rutheh says:

    My friend and I were just finding peaches today at the Farmer’s Market and they were so ripe and smelled ready to be transformed into Margaritas. Alas, she is making ice cream with them but wouldn’t this be a good chaser?

  4. Will you two take an exchange student? A tenant? Dishpig?…
    Happy to take any scraps :-)

    This sounds great though I still haven’t seemed to have gotten my invite to one of these parties ;)!

  6. That is the PERFECT way to eat fruit!

  8. lol. fab recipe, greg. my friends and i were joking recently that caesar cocktails w/ celery stalks might equal a serving of veggies. haha

  9. ChgoJohn says:

    What a great post! Love the cocktail and I want those margarita glasses!

  10. How does anyone stand up in your house – the Cheers bar on the heading is apposite! By the way, thanks for all your support.

  11. myblogject says:

    It’s only just 9in the morning. I’m walking out a train station. And now I want a cocktail… I blame you. These look amazing. I really need to expand my cocktail making skills!

  12. Yumm, with the leftovers you could make them into popsicles! lol

  13. I couldn´t sleep last night with the heat and at about 5.30am this recipe popped up as I was catching up with my messages. I found myself craving a peach margarita and eventually went back to sleep dreaming of icy cold tequila. A bit of a worry eh…and I blame you!

  14. Sissi says:

    I wonder why I have been making peaches with gin for years… Looking at your margaritas I already know I will love them! (And not later than this weekend, or maybe even tonight).
    Do you have any suggestions for the peach schnapps substitute? Would Cointreau introduce too much of a different taste?

  15. What’s not to like about this?:) Yum.

  16. I love margaritas – and I love peaches! What a great idea!

  17. Kelly says:

    Hot indeed. Love these!!! (though I may have to add a rim of salt to suit my margarita mind set :) )

  18. Charles says:

    Mm, my 3 favourite things smushed up and converted into a drink are peach, raspberry and mango. I would love this by default then ;) Looks cool, refreshing and delicious!

  19. Delicious! Simply Delicious!

  20. Mel says:

    That is sunshine nectar in a glass. Oh, I cannot wait for Summer to hit New Zealand again! …

  21. It’s hot in London today and I’m salivating at the sight of them margaritas!

  22. Oh, Rufus…. the ways you tempt me…. ;o)

  23. the drink looks delish!! and your bruschetta, mmmmmm

  24. Oh why oh why is it so cold here – I NEED summer so I can have a cocktail! Another winner. :-) Mandy

  25. Courtney says:

    You had me at margarita, but peach-flavored….omg, heaven!

  26. G-LO says:

    Seriously… now I’m thirsty AND hungry! Well done once again Rufus.

  27. JamieAnne says:

    I don’t drink tequila. Haven’t in years. This looks great though. Cheers to those who partake.

  28. spicegirlfla says:

    Where do I begin….the photo is stunning with those blue rimmed glasses and teasing of salsa and chips to go with the drink!! And speaking of the drink, well I’ve said many times, peach is my favorite flavor so I’m really loving this recipe!!

  29. Caroline says:

    Definitely the correct way to eat fruit. YUM

  30. ambrosiana says:

  32. Tori says:

    I’ve done it with mango, but not with peach. Peaches are currently on sale.

    Hrm….

  33. TasteFood says:

    If this is what it takes to inspire this cocktail, then bring on the heat!

  34. I can’t wait to try this!

  35. Karen says:

    That is such a southern way to deal with the heat. Cheers to you!

  36. eva626 says:

    i just had a two frozen peaches today…yummmmy!

  37. Mmmm…I am reading this at 5 am. Is it too early for one of those? Great idea and it looks so refreshing!

  38. Margaritas are my favorite drinks. I don’t think I have ever had a peach one! Must try this.

  39. Sissi says:

    I made Peach Margarita yesterday! It just wouldn’t get out of my head… I have modified it a bit, but it was still fantastic! Thanks once more for this recipe!

  40. OMG! I love this recipe! Margaritas are now on the menu for this weekend.

  41. kat says:

    I love margaritas!! Another great way to enjoy peaches this season :)

  42. spiderpaw says:

    Made this the other day. I don’t like peaches. I don’t like schnapps. I don’t even like Margaritas. This was the most refreshing and tasteful summer drink I have ever had. Even made me forget about the mosquitos. Thank you.

    Beautiful picture, love, the drink sounds tasty, I love peaches….RaeDi
