Peach Basil Gin Fizz

When a case of fresh Colorado peaches found its way into our kitchen, we knew we would have to find a way to come up with some great drinks that incorporated peaches.  One of the cocktails we tried was the peach basil gin fizz, a spin on the classic gin fizz cocktail.  Adding the peaches to this classic sweet and sour cocktail adds a nice sweet summery flavor that compliments the herbal flavors of the gin.

The Peach Basil Gin Fizz

  • 2 oz Broker’s London Dry Gin
  • 2 oz peach syrup
  • .75 oz fresh lemon juice
  • .5 oz simple syrup.
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 basil leaves

Muddle the basil leaves, lemon juice and simple syrup in the bottom of a shaker.  Add in the gin, peach puree and the egg white.  Give a dry shake (shake for about 10 seconds with no ice in the shaker.)  Add ice and shake for an additional 30 seconds.  Strain into a chilled glass.
