Peach-ginger mojito

Peach-ginger mojito

Seasonal fruits are perfect for making cocktails. This week’s mojito is made with ripe, local peaches. It’s light, refreshing and… as you can imagine… incredibly delicious!

Peach-Ginger Mojito

serves 2
active time: 10 min

  1. 1/2 large lime – cut in 1/4” pieces
  2. 1/8” x 1” slice fresh ginger – cut in 1/8” pieces
  3. 8 large mint leaves
  4. 2 1/2 teaspoons organic sugar
  5. 1 medium ripe peach – pit removed and cut in 1” pieces
  6. 3 oz (89ml) white rum
  7. 3/4 oz (22ml) Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
  8. 1/2 teaspoon peach bitters
  9. club soda or sparkling water
  1. 2 peach slices as garnish

  1. Step 1: Place the lime, ginger, mint leaves and sugar in a mixing glass. Using a muddler, crush the ingredients until the sugar has dissolved and the lime has released its juice. Add the peach and continue to muddle until the peach is well mashed and has released its juice. Top with ice cubes, rum, liqueur and bitters. Shake vigorously until very cold.
  2. Step 2: Place a few ice cubes in 2 tumblers. Strain the mixture into the glasses. Top with a little club soda or sparkling water (the proportion should be 3 parts drink to 1 part club soda). Garnish with a peach slice and serve immediately.

Thank you for your comments everyone! It’s 103F in my neck of the woods today… And I just got back from my local farm with 10 lbs of ripe peaches. Guess what I’m making tonight?!

This definitely sounds like the perfect drink to quench my thirst in this awful heat! And we received loads of peaches in our CSA this week, so we should be good to go!

I spotted the perfect Mojito glasses at ZGallerie this weekend; what a synchronicity! They were made for this drink!

Sandra! You have a good eye… I love how generous the glasses are. Lots of room in there for ice cubes. There’s nothing better than a super-chilled mojito. Cheers!
