Golden Daze

Golden Daze lives up to its name by giving off a golden sheen from peach brandy and orange juice, and a warm fuzzy feeling from the gin.

Two things about my concoction of this recipe: one is that I used actual peach brandy by Catoctin Creek, not peach schnapps, which makes drinks taste like pie. No, Catoctin Creek brandies are 100% organic and not overly sweetened. This liquor is made from real peach juice that's fermented and distilled. It doesn't taste like sugar.

The other thing about this cocktail rendition is that I used a new local gin: Imagination from MurLarkey. This gin is dry and downplays its juniper only a little so that the grain presence is appreciated. MurLarkey makes all kinds of flavored whiskies, so grain composition is important in their products and it shows.
  • 2oz. gin (MurLarkey Imagination used)
  • 1 oz. peach brandy (Catoctin Creek used)
  • 1 oz. orange juice
 Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
