Peach Cocktail

Peachapalooza post number three!  Life sure has been peachy around here!  Mr. Saucy had a birthday; I had a boat load of peaches. Mr. Saucy was feeling a bit low about his birthday this year. So, I thought naming a cocktail “Life is Peachy” in honor of his day would remind him what’s really important.  

For instance, age is just a number…it’s how you live your life that matters.  Or, only the good die young! *wink* It worked.

I thought of making a peach nectar for this cocktail recipe, but was feeling lazy.  Besides, straining the peaches would have made it harder than I wanted; I wanted it easy!  I love easy, don’t you?

I also considered  using plain, fresh lemon juice, but then it would have needed some sweetening.  The lemonade was the perfect answer.  I made mine from scratch, with lemon juice,  simple syrup and water.  You could choose to use store-bought.

This was very refreshing.  And it was the perfect antidote to what ailed Mr. Saucy.


Remember, when consuming alcoholic beverages do so in moderation.

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~
