Georgian Holiday: A peachy rum punch

24 June, 2016

We’re smack in the middle of peach season, and Aimee and I are trying our hands at different peach recipes (check out her yummy panzanella dish). So what do I do when life gives me peaches? I make peach lemonade… and add lots of rum.

The Georgian Holiday is a seasonal peach-lemonade with rum, basil and mint. I recommend white peaches if you can find them – the fruit holds up a bit better than yellow peaches and are the perfect balance of sweet and sour.

Handcrafted, made-to-order cocktails are the best.  But when you want to enjoy a party instead of being shackled to the bar all evening a pre-made punch can free you up to enjoy yourself. I’ll make a pitcher of Georgian Holidays and take them to the pool, or on a picnic, along with some cold, bubbly Topo Chico.
