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 (90 ml) white rum
  7. 3/4 oz (20 ml) 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.
