Description

This fresh peach cocktail, lightly flavored with thyme and honey, is the perfect summer drink. Made with vodka, this refreshing fruity drink is all you need when it gets hot!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh diced peaches
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 8 ounces vodka
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup chilled club soda
  • Thyme sprigs and peach slices to serve

Instructions

Combine peaches, thyme, water, and honey, in a saucepan over medium. Bring peach mixture to a boil and cook 5 minutes until peaches are soft; remove from heat and cool completely.

Strain peach mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a large pitcher with vodka and lemon juice; chill. Discard peach solids (or save and use it to top yogurt, pancakes, and waffles).

Stir club soda into drink just before serving. Divide drinks between ice-filled low-ball glasses and garnish with a thyme sprig and peach slice, if desired.

Serving suggestions:

  • This recipe (and menu) is designed to serve 4–6 people. The reason for giving a range depends on if you choose to serve additional dishes than the menu given.
  • If serving the Casual Summer Dinner Party menu as is, I would plan for it to serve 4 people. However, if you have more then 4 people, each one of these recipes easily doubles, triples, etc.
