Peach Bourbon Old Fashioned - Perfect Texas Summer Sipper

Yum
It's Summertime in Texas, and that means one thing: PEACHES!

Actually, it means quite a few things. But after a stroll through Fredericksburg this weekend reminded me that peach season is in full swing. And while Georgia may have the peach market saturated, Texas definitely holds its own.


Fresh peach goes extremely well with bourbon. The sweet notes blend perfectly with the spice and smoke. I love crushing fresh peaches into a cold glass of bourbon, and an Old Fashioned is the perfect way to showcase this delicious summer fruit.

For an elevated flavor, try grilling the peaches first!


Texas Peach Old Fashioned
  • 1 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Texas Honey lemonade (basic lemonade recipe with honey swapped for sugar)
  • 1 or 2 splashes Grapefruit bitters
  • 1 cherry
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 1 slice ripe peach, no peel

-In a cocktail glass, muddle together the cherry, orange zest, and peach together. Shake in the bitters.

-Fill glass with ice, and pour bourbon and lemonade over.

-Sip slowly, and enjoy.
