A perfect combination of flavors, it screams summer! Cheers to this peach Moscow Mule!

 

For most people, Labor day marks the end of summer, but in our house, Labor Day marks the beginning of peach season, thanks to a couple of peach trees that are growing in our back yard! Once it is time to harvest, we find ourselves coming up with ways to use the fresh sweet peaches from our trees, from classics like peach crisp to fun desserts like our Bourbon Peach Shortbread Bars.

We even use peaches on pizza! Or course being folks who like to make cocktails, we figured we could come up with a great peach cocktail, so after a long hot day picking peaches, we made these refreshing Peach and Basil Vodka Moscow Mules!

The peaches in our backyard hold a special place in our heart, as not only are they delicious, but they are actually historic! Originally brought over from Germany back in the 1860’s by Mrs. Nom’s great great grandparents to their homestead in Kansas. Cultivated by her family at every place they have lived and have been passed down to family members to grow at their homes.

 

 

These peaches are the old fashioned white flesh peaches, sweet and a little tart, great for cooking with or snacking straight off the tree. Our trees have been producing these delicious peaches since our son was born, and he loves them so much he wants a peach pie for his birthday!

What Ingredients are Needed for the Peach Basil Moscow Mule?

  • Basil Simple Syrup
  • Vodka
  • Ginger Beer
  • Lime Juice
  • Peaches

 

After our long hot day harvesting our peaches, we wanted to kick back on our deck and relax with a good sipping drink.One of our favorite summer sippers is a Moscow Mule, the crisp lime and spicy ginger a great combination for beating the heat. The Moscow Mule also happens to be a great starting point for a bunch of great variations like our Peach Moscow Mule.

 

Combining two classic summer flavors, this drink was like summer in a polished copper mug! The sweet peach really played well with the fizzy bite of the ginger beer. Basil simple syrup adds a sweet herbal note that balances the crisp tartness of the lime juice. A perfect drink for sipping during peach season, the Peach and Basil Moscow Mule is sure to be a hit!

 

Cheers!
