When I returned from my trip to Saint Paul & Minneapolis, I knew I wanted to make something similarly refreshing with their new organic gin, and decided to take advantage of the our local summer peaches. I used the peaches to make a simple syrup, and mixed it with a bit of gin, club soda, and muddled peach slices topped with some raspberries from the garden and a bit more of the peach for garnish. The result was a drink as elegant as it was delicious. Bright, clean, and fruity with a bit of bubble, it cuts right through the summer heat and delivers instantaneous cool refreshment. I took mine outside and relaxed out in the yard while the sun was going down and the temperature was starting to become tolerable again. It was a wonderful way to unwind, so much so that I plan on repeating it this weekend, and perhaps every weekend for the rest of the summer… I recommend you try it as well!
