Georgia Peach

The Georgia Peach makes use of real fresh peaches in a boozy slushy. The recipe calls for peach preserves as well, though, and I know why. Peaches don't have enough sugar to balance the drink when you blend them with ice. Peach preserves are packaged in sugar.

I opted to use more real peach flavor to sweeten this drink by using peach nectar. This is just peach juice (about one ounce) but is sweet and not watery. I also recommend peeling the peach slices you use to blend the drink because they tend to be bitter.

This was a really nice smoothy drink with real peach flavor and a little aged brandy zip from peach brandy.
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. peach brandy
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. peach preserves (1 oz. peach nectar used)
  • 1 2-oz. slice of peach pealed and diced
Combine all ingredients with ice in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a highball glass.
