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.
- 4 cups peaches, pureed in the blender
- 2 cups fresh orange juice
- 2 cups fresh lemonade
- 4 ounces peach schnapps
- 4 ounces mandarin orange vodka
- Puree the peaches in a blender, pour the ingredients into a large pitcher.
- Add the remaining ingredients, stir.
- Serve cold, over ice and garnish with a peach slice.
