Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. When the grill is hot, close lid and allow to heat, 5 minutes.

  • Place peach halves and lemon, cut-side down, in sugar until coated. Place on the grill; cook until fruits are soft, about 5 minutes. Cool on a cutting board, about 1 minute. Cut peach into slices with a knife; reserve 2 for garnish.

  • Place remaining peach, mint leaves, and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker; juice lemon into the shaker. Gently muddle with a cocktail muddler. Pour in bourbon and ice, cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into a chilled glass; top off with ginger ale, and garnish with grilled peach slices and lemon.

Cook's Note:

The muddled peach may clog your shaker, in which case you should just open the shaker and pour through a fine mesh strainer. For more rustic drinks, pour the contents of the shaker directly into glasses.

Peaches and bourbon are just so right together. Sip this one slowly, though. It's so delicious, you might down it too quickly and have to go lie down. In a hammock. In the shade. Yes, I'll have another, thanks. Read More

Flavor wise peaches and bourbon can't be beat but when you add in the smokey charred grill factor it takes everything to a whole new level. I can't fault the flavor of this drink in anyway but it is rather time consuming and different to strain around the peach pulp. Read More
