Peach Month

August is officially peach month.  This is great for so many reasons; pies, cobblers, teas, jams and so forth.  I recently discovered a few peach cocktail recipes to add to my list, really helping to round out my uses for the fuzzy, sweet and juicy fruit.  During peach season my favorite cocktail to make is a Peach Martini with Chiles. I usually have my own chiles growing in my garden in the summer and I love the combination of spicy and sweet, especially in a cocktail. Once summer ends, I curve my peach withdrawal by making Peach Pimms Punch.  This cocktail manages to be deliciously peachy without the use of fresh peaches, but instead by using Hansen’s Peach Soda.  Check out the recipes below.
