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.
