We adore peach cocktails when the weather is balmy, and Mother Nature is showing off all her prettiest colors. Sweet, juicy, and aromatic, the blushing peach has inspired countless amazing bakes, eats, and treats over the centuries, and it also makes a gorgeous base for warm-weather libations. Here are a few of our favourites you can try at home:  

1. Peachy Old Fashioned

To make this superbly satisfying riff on the classic Old Fashioned, start by muddling one ripe peach, pitted and diced, with 15ml of sugar syrup in a mixing glass. Add 60ml of Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon or rye whiskey and 2 dashes of bitters. Stir well with ice. Fill an Old Fashioned glass with ice cubes and strain the cocktail over it. To finish it off, garnish with an orange twist or slice (optional but recommended). 

2. Bourbon Peach Smash

The spice of a good bourbon pairs beautifully with the sweetness of peaches. To enjoy this exceptional combo, shake up a Bourbon Peach Smash cocktail. In a cocktail shaker, muddle one ripe peach, pitted and cubed, with 4-5 fresh mint leaves. Add 60ml of bourbon, 15ml of sugar syrup, and 15ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice.  

Shake vigorously with ice for 10-15 seconds before straining into an ice-filled rocks glass. For an optional finishing touch, garnish with a peach slice and mint sprig. Then, all that’s left to do is sip and savour the refreshing blend of peach, bourbon, and mint in this summer-inspired drink.

If you’re always on the lookout for the best Margarita, you’ve got to try your hand at the Peach Margarita. When made with a top-tier tequila for Margaritas like Espolòn Tequila Blanco, it has a strong Latin backbone and the perfect amount of seasonal swagger.  

In a blender, blend one ripe peach (peeled and pitted) with 60ml tequila, 30ml of Grand Marnier, 1 oz of freshly squeezed lime juice, and 15ml of simple syrup until smooth. Optionally, rim a margarita glass with salt (if you’re a traditionalist) or sugar. Fill the glass with ice cubes and pour in the Peach Margarita mixture. Add a peach slice or lime wheel for garnish if desired.
