Peach Navy Fizz

Yum
Peaches, the summer fruit that we live for in Missouri, especially if the peaches are from Calhoun County (IL). Good stuff! This peach cocktail is lovely. Refreshing and a bit sweet.  Perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail or a sitting on the porch cocktail. Enjoy it wherever you want!  This drink has a nice woodsy taste from the rosemary, sweetness from the peaches and the right amount of kick from the gin.  I'm not a gin drinker and I liked this drink!

Bonus:  I use Sonic ice for my cocktails and I won't use any other!  Something about Sonic ice...


I'm joining a group of bloggers who like to improv each month using a special ingredient.  This month, of course, is peaches.  If you wish to join up, click here and make a request!

To make this cocktail you need:

1 ripe peach, pitted and skinned
3/4 oz simple syrup
1 rosemary sprig
1 1/2 oz of dry gin
3/4 oz Campari
The juice of one lemon
Club soda
(alas, no cream!)

In a cocktail shaker, muddle peach, rosemary and simple syrup. Add gin, juice, Campari and ice. Shake until cold about 15 seconds. Fill highball glass with Sonic ice. Strain drink into glass. Top with club soda. Garnish with rosemary.

  2. Sonic ice! -- That's even better than cream (and a lot less fat!) Was not expecting the rosemary, but maybe I'll try it with my purple basil. (Oooooh -- I also have a lemon thyme in my garden that might work...) Thanks for the recipe, Terri!
