  • 3 medium fresh mint leaves
  • 2 ounces bourbon whiskey
  • ½ ounce ginger liqueur
  • ounces homemade peach nectar (or store-bought)
  • 15 ice cubes
  • 5 ounces club soda
  • Peach slices (optional for garnish)
  • Mint sprig (optional for garnish)

Homemade peach nectar:

  • 4 fresh peaches
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¾ cup water
  • 6 - 8 tablespoons sugar


  • A day ahead, make the peach nectar. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over high heat. Fill a medium bowl with water and add the ice cubes. With a sharp knife, lightly score an "X" at the bottom of each peach. In 2 batches, put the peaches in the boiling water and cook for 1 minute. Submerge the cooked peaches in the iced water for 1 minute. Pat dry and peel. If needed, use a vegetable peeler. Cut the peaches into large slices and remove the pits. Place the peaches in a medium nonreactive bowl, and toss with lemon juice.
  • Add the peaches and juice to a blender. Add ¾ cup water. Blend until pretty smooth. Pour the peach juice into fine mesh strainer over a large bowl. Use a large spoon to scrape the strainer multiple times, so the juice can pass through. Discard the pulp of the peaches.
  • Transfer the juice to a medium sauce pan. Add sugar. Bring to a boil and until the sugar has melted. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Once cooled, pour into airtight container and keep in the fridge until ready to use.
  • To make the cocktail, tear the mint leaves with hands and put into a cocktail shaker. Muddle a few times. Add bourbon whiskey, ginger liqueur, peach nectar and 10 ice cubes. Close the shaker and shake vigorously.
  • In a glass cup, add 4 - 5 ice cubes. Strain the cocktail into the cup. Add club soda. Give a quick stir. Garnish with peaches and mint sprig. Serve.


  1. For the alcohol, I used Four Roses Small Batch and Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur. They can be easily found in liqueur stores.
  2. It’s best to make the peach nectar a day ahead, so it has time to chill in the fridge. The nectar can be kept for a few days in the fridge. The nectar recipe makes a little more than 2 cups of nectar, which is enough to make at least 6 servings of this cocktail.
  3. If you don’t want to make your own peach nectar, you can get a store-bought one in the juice aisle in local supermarkets.
