Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Quarter the peach and remove pit. Cut a couple of thin slices of peach to reserve for garnish.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the peach quarters, mint sprigs and simple syrup. Add ice, gin and lemon juice and shake for 30 seconds, until chilled. Taste for sweetness, and add a touch more simple syrup if needed.
  3. Pour into 2 double old-fashioned glasses or tumblers filled with ice. Top with soda water and garnish with reserved mint and peach.

Notes

Shopping: Look for peaches that are just firm, rich in color and unblemished. Firmer peaches should be stored on the counter, not in the refrigerator, which can make them mealy.

Drinking: Ripe peaches, on the other hand, can be refrigerated for a day or two or, better yet, muddled immediately into a summer cocktail!
