Kentucky Bourbon Peach Smash

Friday, October 3, 2014 0 0

We’re heading to San Francisco for the weekend tomorrow. I was about 16 the last time I was in San Francisco and J has never been there, so essentially it’s a new city for both of us! I’ve already jam-packed our 3 days there with lists of restaurants and cafes to check out – basically I just want to eat our way through the city. And take lots of photos. All I know is that Tartine Bakery is high on my list, and everything else will fall into place after that. ;)

(I would love any and all San Francisco recommendations if you have any!)

And so, to celebrate Friday and the end of the work week, I leave you with this Kentucky Bourbon Peach Smash. It’s a great drink for transitioning between the summer and autumn seasons – the peach preserves harken back to summer, and the bourbon welcomes fall. This drink will transport you to a wooden porch swing with a warm wool blanket wrapped over your arms – turn on the bluegrass and be transported to autumn in Kentucky. (Okay I realise that was totally stereotypical and I have never actually been to Kentucky, but it sounds like the stuff of dreams, doesn’t it?)

  1. 1 1/2 ounces bourbon (I used Bulleit Kentucky Bourbon)
  2. 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  3. 1 tablespoon peach preserves (or more to desired sweetness)
  4. splash of soda water, if desired
  5. wedge of peach, for garnish
  1. Add bourbon, lemon juice, and peach preserves to a cocktail shaker. Add lots of ice up to the liquid line. Shake it up!
  2. Strain the contents of the shaker into an old fashioned glass and add a cube of ice. Add a splash of soda water, if desired (adding soda will make the drink less bourbon-y). Garnish with a wedge of peach.
