Thirsty Thursday - Peach-a-Rita it is!!
Summer’s not over yet! Actually, where I live (Arizona) summer is still in full force. I know many of you are celebrating/dreading (choose the appropriate verb) the start of school in just a few short days while others of us have been dealing with the return of schedules, homework, lunches, etc for a few weeks now. No matter where you live and what your schedule is, summer and all it’s carefree, lighthearted feelings and activities are still lingering. This Peach-a-Rita embraces all that’s great about summer. Peaches are, in my opinion, one of summer’s best fruits. Now, put peaches into a margarita and you’ve got perfection in a glass. Go ahead, savor the remnants of summer and sip this sunset in a glass…
Ingredients ~ (2 servings)
- 4 oz. tequila
- 2 oz. triple sec
- 1.5 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 tsp Grand Marnier (optional, but delicious)
- 1/2 peach
- 1 cup ice
- Garnish glass with lime zest and coconut sugar or lime zest and sea salt
Put all ingredients (except the garnish) into a blender (or a Magic Bullet: my personal favorite)
Blend until combined.
To garnish glass, combine lime zest and sugar or salt on a small plate. Use a slice of lime to wet the rim of the glass, flip over glass and place on plate to make garnish stick.
Pour in peach-a-rita and serve with peach slices. Enjoy!
