Peach Nectar Cocktail with Lime Basil Syrup
Perfect for a hot summer’s day, this crisp, refreshing cocktail is splashed with our housemade syrup.
2-3 ripe peaches, chilled
1-2 tablespoons Farm & Larder Lime basil simple syrup
2 cups sparkling mineral water
Vodka, to taste
Sliced lime wedges
Additional peach slices for garnish
1. Chop and pit the peaches, then place in a high speed blender or food processor along with about 1 tablespoon of the simple syrup. Purée until uniform, about 45 seconds to a minute. Check for sweetness, and add more simple syrup as desired. Pour mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher. Use a spoon to press out all the juice from peach pulp. Discard pulp.
2. Assembling one drink at a time, pour a ratio of one part peach purée and one part mineral water, leaving a bit of room at the top of the glass for a splash of vodka. Stir in vodka to taste. Top off with a squeeze of fresh lime and garnish with a slice of peach.
