Peach, Bourbon and Fizz

That is a nice looking peach

This started out nonalcoholic. It didn’t stay that way.

Peach Bourbon Fizz

  • 1 peach
  • 4-5 basil leaves
  • 2-4 ounces soda water
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce bourbon (optional)

Peel and pit peach. Muddle basil leaves and peach halves in a glass, then dump contents into a strainer set over a measuring cup. Muddle again to get as much juice out as possible. Depending on the size of the peach, you should have about 1/4 to 1/2 cup juice. (You’ll want to adjust the soda water accordingly.) Pour juice, bourbon and simple syrup in a tumbler. Add ice cubes and top with desired amount of soda water. Garnish with a basil leaf.


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.

    Great idea to add the Bourbon !! I was wondering – perhaps you might want to explain what “muddle” means for some of your followers who may not know? Another wonderful recipe Rufus!!

    Fresh from the Orchard flavor. Love it. πŸ™‚

  5. That is a nice looking peach indeed and an even better looking cocktail. I am stealing your idea and making this in a large batch for a dinner party/potluck that I am attending next week. I will of course give you full credit when everyone loves it!
