A couple years ago, I experimented with making banana flavored Jameson. Having had it at a bar in Brooklyn, I had come back with a slight addiction, and couldn’t wait to have it here. And while banana Jameson is great for the fall, I thought nothing could be better for the summer than to make a peach Jameson, and with it peach whiskey lemonade.
The formula for peach Jameson is the exact same as banana Jameson. I roughly diced four peaches, and let a liter of Jameson soak with the peaches in a cool dark place for three days before filtering it back into the bottle. Let’s be real, I could definitely drink peach Jameson completely straight without any issue, but decided to use it in this super simple, and delicious summertime cocktail.
A couple notes on this recipe: you could just do the peach Jameson and lemonade on their own, but I appreciate adding the soda water to keep the drink from getting two sweet, and also, I prefer to use crushed ice instead of cubed. For one, I feel like it keeps the entire drink much colder, and two it sort of just looks cooler. Unfortunately, I don’t have an ice crusher, but I crush my ice in my Lewis Ice Bag with a muddler, it’s also a great stress relief!
Peach Jameson Lemonade:
- 1 oz peach jameson
- 2 oz organic lemonade
- Soda water
- Add one ounce peach Jameson to a cocktail glass filled with crushed ice.
- Add the two ounces of organic lemonade.
- Top with soda water, stir, and add a lemon to garnish.
