Summertime in Colorado means peach season, and peach season means finding ways to utilize the abundance of peaches I always end up buying from numerous roadside stands around Denver. Though harvest season may be a few weeks out, this herbal & sweet mocktail is the perfect way to celebrate the start of summer wherever you are. Peaches and honey pair along a delicate balance of soft lavender and bite of ginger.
Though this recipe calls for frozen peaches, feel free to use fresh if they are seasonally available to you. Just cube them and toss them in the freezer for a quick chill beforehand. My other tip is ensuring you use real maple syrup when making the mocktail. While the fake stuff might be more budget friendly, it’s mostly packed with corn syrup and various dyes. Real maple syrup has a sweetness that cannot be replicated, and is best used for this drink.
