I've been waiting for summer peach season to do this drink. Delta refers to the mouth of the Mississippi and the state of Louisiana, where Southern Comfort is from. SoCo--as it's called in the bar scene is not bourbon, it's a peach brandy or liqueur made from a secret recipe. It's Americas proprietary spirit like Irish Mist is for Ireland or Yukon Jack is for Canada.

The Delta is a summery but very strong rocks drink. Lots of peach and lime aromas make it taste very fresh, but there's plenty of hooch in there. I could also see the drink being done frozen or as a tiki...hmmm.
  • 2 oz. blended whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. Southern Comfort
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • orange slice
  • peach slice
Combine all ingredients except fruit slices in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with fruit.
