The King’s Peach Cocktail
It’s almost peach season; soon you’ll be able to find plenty of fresh peaches for this cocktail. For now, canned is fine; if you get them in 100% juice, you can use that in place of the peach nectar.
2 ounces Absolut Apeach (you can sub regular vodka but increase the Peach brandy and peach nectar slightly or use an orange flavored vodka like Grey Goose L’Orange)
1 1/2 ounces peach brandy
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce peach nectar* (or a tablespoon of superfine or Confectioner’s sugar)
Splash of Champagne
1 slice fresh peach
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all ingredients. Shake until very cold and the shaker is frosted. Strain into chilled martini glasses. Add a splash of Champagne or club soda on top, Garnish with the peach slice.
