So the other day, as I was contemplating what to do with the multitude of peaches sitting on my counter, I thought to myself, “What would Marsharelle do?” and the answer came swiftly:  a pie.  Well, the thought passed and instead I decided on a lovely cocktail to celebrate the end of summer.  The first to be featured on SP&BB!  Didn’t waste any time, did I?  :)




3-4 ripe peaches

1 small piece of fresh ginger - peeled

juice of 2 limes

6 oz vodka

12 oz ginger beer (not ginger ale)

ice for serving



1.    Remove pits and slice peaches (save a few for garnish)

2.    Toss peach slices, ginger and lime juice in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth

3.    Strain the puree through a fine mesh sieve

4.    In a large pitcher combine 1 cup of peach puree with vodkaand stir to combine

5.    To serve add ice to four glasses and divide the mixture evenly

6.    Top each glass with 3 oz of ginger beer and garnish with a peach slice

7.    Cheers!
