Last week Lacey made a delicious peach ‘not-so’ empanada. It was fruity but not overly sweet, with a hint of spice that didn’t clash with the summer heat. But it was missing something…perhaps a matching cocktail? Why not, right? It sure beats a milk or coffee pairing.
Using Lacey’s leftover peach filling as a base, I kept the ingredient list simple. The result was a version of an Old Fashioned – enjoyed thoroughly as a fruitful breakfast dessert.
The cocktail from the bottom up:
– Lacey’s peach filling (the bigger the scoop the better)
– peach schnapps (1oz. pour)
– Squeeze of lemon
– splash of soda
(muddle and strain; swirl to coat glass; add rocks)
– Angel’s Envy whiskey (2oz. pour)
– garnish with frozen peach wedge and lemon twist
Look good, drink good,
