Georgia Julep

This is a softer, some might say more feminine, take on a Mint Julep. It makes an ideal pre-dinner cocktail, but is also great on a rainy afternoon – the combination of the warmth from the bourbon, and the sweet sunny flavours of the peach act as a reminder of those warm summer days. As Crème de Pêche (Peach Liqueur) is an additional ingredient to the ‘basic drinks cabinet‘ it could also be used to make a great Peach Bellini. Any other uses drop us a message.

Pouring the drink Crush the ice, if you have one use an ice crusher, as pictured. Or wrap the ice up in a tea-towel and bash with a rolling pin – not too hard, we don’t want you to break the kitchen table!
