Rosemary Peach Maple Cocktail

We have a new summery friend that we'd like to introduce you to: The Rosemary Peach Maple Cocktail.
Rosemary Peach Maple Cocktail
We saw this cocktail recipe on The Bonjon Gourmet and knew that our peaches would star in this tasty number. Grab your favorite bottle of rye whiskey, a jar of our Simply Peaches, a few other choice bartending items listed below, and enjoy!
INGREDIENTS Makes 1 strong drink
  • 1/2 of a peach, chopped, plus a few slices for garnish
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rosemary maple simple syrup (below)
  • 1 tablespoon strained lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup rye whiskey
  • tiny pinch smoked sea salt
  • ice
  • rosemary sprig for garnish
  • sparkling water or club soda, optional
DIRECTIONS
Muddle together the chopped peach, rosemary maple simple syrup, lemon juice, rye, and salt in a measuring cup or glass. Strain the mixture into a tumbler filled with ice, pressing on the fruit pulp to get out all the good stuff. Garnish with the peach slices and rosemary sprig. If you like your drink a little lighter, top it with a splash of sparkling water or club soda.
Rosemary Maple Simple Syrup
Makes about 1 cup, enough for 10 drinks
  • 3/4 cup lightly packed rosemary leaves (from about 10 sprigs), roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup (5 3/4 ounces by weight) maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
DIRECTIONS
Combine the rosemary, maple syrup, and water together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then cover and steep for at least 15 - 30 minutes. Strain the mixture though a fine-mesh sieve, pressing on the rosemary to extract all the liquid. Discard the rosemary. Chill the syrup until cold, 1 hour (or mix your drinks right away if you just can't wait). The syrup will keep, refrigerated, for at least several weeks.
