Ginger Peach Peppermint Juleps

My Thoughts

This was a quick little mixed drink. Once again, I needed a recipe that was suitable for my laziness.

I get an iced coffee every day that has peppermint in it, and I continue to enjoy the fresh taste of peppermint in this mixed drink as well.

Mixing and crushing the peppermint and peach with the liquor and then refrigerating before adding the ice and ginger ale does make a serious difference. It gives it a much fruitier taste.

I’ve also learned that Juleps are sweet flavored drinks that are made of sweet syrup and alcohol.. good to know?

Recipe Adapted from Dirty Gourmet
Ingredients

1/2 fresh ripe peach, sliced
10-14 fresh peppermint leaves
2 oz bourbon whiskey
1 oz peach schnapps
8 oz ginger ale (to fill, depending on your glass, you may have extra)
Ice

Directions

Toss the peaches and peppermint into a tall, chilled glass.

Pour in the bourbon and schnapps, then muddle together, bruising the mint and pressing some juice from the peaches. As mentioned above, you can also prepare this ahead.

Fill the glass with ice, then top off with ginger ale. Stir.

Garnish with fresh mint sprigs.
