Anyone for peach cocktails?
This Peach Whiskey Cocktail is super easy because you use frozen peaches from the grocery store to keep your whiskey cocktail recipe nice and cold.
I love using frozen fruit from the grocery store since it’s already cleaned, sliced, frozen and ready to add to your peach cocktails! No need to drive all over town trying to find ripe peaches, too!
Also, the frozen peaches can be used instead of ice cubes and won’t water down your cocktail drinks.
If you’re making Peach Whiskey Cocktails for a party, run bamboo appetizer skewers through a four or five peach slices.
Make up a dozen or so depending on the number of guests you’ll be serving. Then keep them in the freezer until it’s time to make your drinks. Then use the peach skewers as cocktail stirrers!
What to mix with whiskey?
Besides peaches, to keep this whiskey cocktail even peachier, how about using a peach flavored whiskey?
Bet you didn’t know there was such a beast!
My two favorites are made by Leopold Bros. – either Georgia Peach Flavored Whiskey or Rocky Mountain Peach Whiskey.
What I like about Leopold Bros. whiskeys, besides the taste and quality, is that their product has an affordable price point.
Unfortunately, Leopold Bros. liquors aren’t distributed in every state, so you may have to work with your local liquor store to find a good substitution.
Other peach flavored whiskeys are made by Crown Royal, Peach Street Colorado Straight Bourbon from Caskers, Bird Dog Peach Flavored Whiskey from Western Spirits, Ole Smokey Salted Peach Whiskey, and Old Camp Peach Pecan Whisky.
For more peachy goodness, I added Fee Brothers Peach Bitters to my whiskey cocktail. You can find their bitters at your better liquor stores or online.
Bitters and seltzer make a good fizzy drink when you don’t feel like having a cocktail and don’t want a diet soda or the calories of juice and seltzer. So you'll be using up these bitters in more than just this drink.
Finally, I sweetened this up a bit with monk fruit powder. Much better than adding a simple syrup (and all those calories).
Lighten up whiskey cocktails with seltzer
Finally, I’ve used peach flavored seltzer water to freshen up this whiskey mixed drink and give it a sparkling feel.
When shopping for peach seltzers make sure to check that your sparkling water is no calorie and doesn’t have any additional juice or sugar added. You don’t want to go too sweet or add extra calories to what’s supposed to be a “lightened” drink.
