The Peach Tea Smash

JackRudy-1I don’t know about y’all, but it is feeling like full on Spring time here in the Lowcountry.  And while I’ve been enjoying a lot of very satisfying winter cocktails like the Gingerbread Whiskey Sour, the Chocolate Old Fashioned, the Haitian Divorce, my palette is ready for a spring cocktail.

I recently received a handful of goodies from the good folks at Jack Rudy Cocktail Co including: Aromatic Bitters, Bourbon Cocktail Cherries and their new Sweet Tea Syrup.  The sweet tea syrup inspired this refreshing “Peach Tea Smash” that is a hybrid of an Arnold Palmer and a Whiskey Smash, with a peach thrown in for good southern measure. This cocktail is just begging to be drunk in a rocking chair on the front porch.  Or in our case, in our backyard with some bug spray (front porch rockers TBD).JackRudy-6
