Margie’s Mark {a peach bourbon cocktail}

It’s time for the first peach bourbon cocktail of the season. I can’t guarantee it won’t be the last of the season because I’ve been working on a mezcal one too, but for now, let’s focus on this one. Because it’s a good one. And it’s summer. And peaches are in season. And bourbon. Well, bourbon is always in season.

So, this peach bourbon cocktail started as something rather different a year ago. In the beginning I made it with sage and peach syrup, but I let the recipe sit for awhile and when I finally came back to it, things changed a little. I had different ingredients on hand and decided to go a slightly different direction. Instead of peach syrup I used Ash Apothecary Honey Ginger Simple Syrup and completely dropped the sage. I didn’t think it was a good fit with the ginger in the syrup.

Overall, I’m rather happy with how the version of this peach bourbon cocktail came out. Peach and bourbon are already a wonderful combination, especially with lemon juice. The honey ginger simple syrup sweetens the drink and also adds a little ginger bite. Batavia Arrack sneaks in the back to provide dimension without overpowering anything.
