Peach Fuzz (Non-Alcoholic)

This is one of the more complicated non-alcoholic, "Smoothie," style drinks to make. And I can't help but think that it is flawed in some way. The good news is that you can get a quality fruit drink without needing a blender.

There must be a misprint in the recipe or maybe the drink is misnamed, because there's no peach in the drink besides the garnish. This is mostly a strawberry lemonade with cream.

There's a lot that can go wrong when you use two ounces of lemon juice and two ounces of cream--it tends to turn into a curdled mess. You can get around this by shaking all ingredients first and then adding the cream and shaking again. This makes sure the cream is cool and suspended amid ice and other non-acidic liquids.

One other addition that I made was using my peach syrup, which did in fact add peaches to this cocktail.
  • 2 oz. lemon juice
  • 2 oz. half-and-half
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup (peach syrup recommended)
  • 5 fresh strawberries mashed.  
  • sparkling water
  • fresh peach wedge
Combine syrup, lemon juice and strawberries in a shaker. Muddle the berries until they are mashed into the syrup and release their juice. Add ice and shake. Add half-and-half and shake again. Pour into a chilled Collins glass and top with sparkling water. Stir and garnish with a peach wedge.
