The Weather Wonk says we are in hurricane season and I can sure feel that the heat and humidity have risen. I’m going to hunker down with a nice fruity, refreshing, sparkling cocktail and wait the season out.
1 cup peach nectar (make sure it says ‘nectar’ as this is a higher quality juice than the regular one)
2 oz. (a shot) gin
4 fresh mint leaves
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 of a lime, juiced
Place fresh mint leaves and sugar in the bottom of a tall glass and gently mash together with a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon. You just want to lightly bruise the mint to release its flavor. Add gin and lime juice and mix together until sugar dissolves. Add peach nectar and ice and top with a splash of agua mineral.
You know where to find me until October…..with one of these in my hand.
