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 (given he turned older than dirt this year*); I thought naming a cocktail “Life is Peachy” in honor of his day would remind him what’s really important. Like, age is just a number…it’s how you LIVE your life that matters. It worked. I made this simple…I decided to not make peach nectar. I’m lazy. I had little time, didn’t feel like straining the peach juice, so I just used it fully loaded! I love easy, don’t you?
- 4 cups peaches, liquefied in the blender
- 2 cups fresh orange juice
- 2 cups fresh lemonade
- 4 ounces peach schnapps
- 4 ounces mandarin orange vodka
- Liquefy 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.
I thought about using straight lemon juice, but then it would have needed some sweetening. The lemonade was great in it. I made mine from scratch, with lemon juice, simple syrup and water. You could choose to use store-bought. Also, since the lemonade HAD water in it, I didn’t need to add any to the liquefied peaches.
This was very refreshing. And it was the perfect antidote to what ailed Mr. Saucy. *Mr. Saucy isn’t really older than dirt…he was just feeling like it.
Remember, when consuming alcoholic beverages do so in moderation.
