This grilled white peach and mint whiskey sour recipe is a delight to the senses.
Nothing tops off a hot summer afternoon quite like a fresh and fruity cocktail. And this beauty takes the inimitable sweetness of the peach, adds a slight smoky flavor, and finishes it off with a fragrant dose of mint. The result is a buzz-worthy boozy drink!
You can take out the bourbon in this recipe to make it kid-friendly. If you don’t have the time or energy to grill the peaches before you blend them into a puree, skip the grilling part altogether. Either way, the resulting whiskey sour cocktail is a dive into peach heaven!
Grilled White Peach and Mint Whiskey Sour Recipe
- 2 medium white peaches, halved and pitted
- 1 teaspoon flavorless oil, such as vegetable or canola
- Juice of 2 lemons
- Handful of fresh mint, roughly chopped
- 1 cup bourbon whiskey
- 2 cups seltzer water
- Lemon slices and fresh mint for garnish
Bring a grill up to medium-high heat. Brush the cut side of the peaches with the oil and place on the grill, cut sides down. Grill for about 6-10 minutes, flipping occasionally. Once soft and lightly charred, remove the white peaches from the grill and set aside to cool.
Once cool, remove the peach skins. Chop the peaches and transfer them to a food processor or blender. Add the lemon juice and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a pitcher and add in the bourbon and chopped mint. Stir until evenly combined.
Divide the mixture evenly among four glasses filled with ice. Finish each off with seltzer water. Garnish with a lemon slice and fresh mint. Enjoy!
