Summer calls for fruity drinks and keeping cool with Frosty Peach Mojitos is one of the best ways to refresh! Real peach juice, rum and lime combined with a little sugar, mint and club soda! A little bit of effort with a whole lot of flavor! Bring the weekend on!
Frosty Peach Mojitos

The heat has been bringing even more of the beverage making machine in me lately.  I’ve been drinking a lot of Mango Lassi, Blueberry Smoothies (strawberry too!) and the other evening I decided it was time to make a Peach Mojito.

Not too long ago I was treated to lunch at 1844 house.  The owner/chef, Brian Walker, invited me to join him for a lunch prepared by him and I talked to him about his restaurant run by himself and his wife Jenny.  In the near future I will have a post about their place and their concept of food – which I totally agree with!  If you are in this area, you must go there!  While there, I saw on his drink menu a Peach Mojito.  I mentioned the drink to him because it attracted my attention immediately – I love peach anything and when it comes to booze :it is no exception  –  AND I love Mojitos!

Frosty Peach Mojitos

I decided to try my hand at Mojito making with peaches.  It has been on my mind ever since that lunch with Brian.  The weather this week was perfect for making a Frosty Cool Peach Mojito so I set about it, made them last night and tonight, when I wanted to make a Strawberry drink?  Grumpy wanted Peach Mojitos.  So we had them again tonight!.  I hope you will enjoy!


Frosty Cook Peach Mojito
Serves 4 or 2 if you want more than one!  😉
adapted from myrecipes.com

2 large peaches  coarsely chopped and peeled
1/2  cup  fresh lime juice (about 2 large limes)
1/3  cup  sugar
1/4  cup  packed mint leaves
1  cups  white rum
2  cups  club soda, chilled
Crushed ice
Mint sprigs (optional)

Place peaches in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Press peach puree through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids.
Combine lime juice, sugar, and mint in a large measuring cup; crush juice mixture with a wooden muddler or the back of a long spoon. Set aside for about 20 minutes (this give the sugar time to dissolve). . Stir in club soda and peach juice. Serve over crushed ice. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.

    This looks amazing! If I can keep my mint from dying (yes, I CAN kill it) until we can get decent peaches around here, I'm going to try this!

    I can never resist a mojito. Adding peach to it makes it that much more irresistible. Ahhh, you will be my downfall yet! 😉

    I can picture myself enjoying one of these on our patio on a hot day.

    I like your idea here. I think I will make some peach daquiris though because I am just too lazy at the moment to pree the epaches through a sieve and squeeze limes. Yeah I know thats pretty bad.

    The 1844 House is a wonderful place to have dinner…the owners Brian and Jenny are so thoughtful and the food is excellent.
