Mojitos are a classic summer cocktail and there is no end to the way you can tweak them with fresh flavors. In this episode I show you how to give your next mojito a peachy twist with this delicious summer fruit. Peach Mojitos are going to be your new summer entertaining favorite!
Peach season can be somewhat fleeting in the northeast which is why I take advantage of it the second the delicious summer peaches arrive at the market. Peaches work really well in mojitos because the sweet floral flavor of peaches pairs really well with sharp, fresh mint.
For this recipe I made a whole pitcher of the cocktail because I think that’s a really convenient preparation for entertaining. When you have several servings ready to pour it means guests can help themselves and you don’t have to be shaking up individual cocktails while everyone else enjoys the party.
The minute you find fresh peaches in the market, or you get your box from The Peach Truck, I hope you treat you and your friends to this summer refresher. I promise, you’ll absolutely love them!
There is nothing better than a refreshing cocktail in the heat of summer. For this cocktail I decided to give it a summery twist with the addition of fresh peach flavor.
Makes one full pitcher
Timing: 10 minutes prep
3 peaches, cut in 1’’ pieces
½ Bunch Mint
6 Oz lime juice
6 oz simple syrup
12 oz rum, I use a light rum
Lime wheels, for garnish
Add the peach, simple syrup and lime juice to a blender and blend until smooth.
Using a mesh strainer and rubber spatula, strain the peach mixture to remove any remaining solids. This will ensure you have a beautiful and silky puree.
In a large pitcher, lightly muddle the mint.
Add the ice, peach mixture, and rum to the pitcher. Stir to combine.
Top with club soda and some lime wheels for garnish.
