I love when I show up at the local market and I am greeted with baskets of fresh local peaches.  You can actually smell their peachy aroma as you walk by; they are just that fresh. From that moment on, I’m dreaming of peach cocktails!

Is there anything better than the smell of fresh grown peaches?  I always feel a little guilty eating peaches because they are so luxuriously sweet, it seems like I am being a glutton, but they are genuinely so good for you, so I munch on.

Since you know I am a peach lover, you know I bought a big ol’ basket of peaches at the market have been finding all kinds of ways to use them in my recipes.  One way was in this Bourbon Peach Smash Cocktail.  Don’t be fooled by this cocktail’s pretty face, it is pretty, but it is delicious with a kick.

I truly enjoy creating fresh cocktails, mixing and matching to come up with something delightful to drink and easy to make.  This cocktail will soon become a favorite to enjoy with family and friends, preferably relaxing by the water if you can.

What is your favorite fruit to enjoy in a cocktail? Another fave of mine is this Blood Orange- Rosemary Fizz Cocktail. The fresh-squeezed blood orange juice gets me every time!

This Watermelon Vodka Cooler is another you don’t want to miss. Watermelon, Vodka, and garnished with lime wedges and mint leaves, yum yum YUM!
