hump day treat: peach mojitos

Hey lovelies! How’s your hump day going? We’ve got peach mojitos on tap for our hump day treat this week. I want to feature this recipe while peaches are still readily available in local grocery stores and farmers markets. Louisiana grows some of the sweetest, most aromatic peaches in the U.S., and late May through early September is the best time to enjoy them. That said, I made these peach mojitos a few weekends ago at Lake Bruin and I want to make them once more before it’s too late. This weekend at Pensacola Beach will be the perfect opportunity to do so. I hope a peach mojito find its way into your hands this weekend, or some other delicious bevvy!

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 to 2 ounces white rum
  • 1 small, ripe peach, sliced (you may remove the skin, but I didn’t)
  • Small handful fresh mint leaves
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon simple syrup (or just plain sugar if that’s all you have)
  • Club soda

Instructions:

Thoroughly muddle peach slices, mint and lime juice in a tall glass (I didn’t have a muddler, so I placed the ingredients in a bowl and muddled them with a large spoon)

Swirl with rum

Divide mixture between two Collins glasses and fill with ice. Top glass off with club soda.

Mix with a spoon or by pouring the drink back into your mixing glass, then back into your drinking glass.
