The Peach Truck Old Fashioned
As peach season bestows its last glorious weeks upon us, we clearly must take full advantage. Peach cobbler, jam, tartine, ice cream, dishes, and inspired cocktails are currently everywhere in Nashville, and I plan on soaking up every last moment of the goodness before it's gone.
Last night we had a few friends over which inspired me to create a fun cocktail, and thus, the Peach Old Fashioned was born. Simple to throw together, and destined to be a surefire hit amongst the crowd.
Peach Old Fashioned
1/2 Fresh Peach (If you're in Nashville, you must use a Peach Truck Peach - and if you need any convincing as to why, read my interview with owner Stephen Rose.)
2 Luxardo Cherries
A Dash of Angostura Bitters
1/2 Tsp of Sugar
2 (ish) oz. Bourbon (I recommend Four Roses or Builleit)
Peel, and muddle together the peach with the cherries, bitters, and sugar. Stir in two ounces of bourbon and add ice.
Now, prepare thyself as life will certainly be immeasurably better.
