sweet georgia peach basil mojitos… delish!

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

last weekend we had dinner with some dear friends at one of favorite restaurants. milton's is a quaint establishment set up in a 150 year-old farmhouse in the heart of crabapple/milton. many of the fresh ingredients they use come from the 1 acre garden they have out back. how awesome is that?


the southern food with a modern flare is sure to not disappoint... but beyond the homemade pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes, a certain peach libation caught our attention. and oh. my. goodness! it was a georgia summer all caught up in a mason jar. it was just too good to not try to make one of these at home... so, after many attempts, i do believe i have the second best georgia peach basil mojito.

  peach basil mojito

This is for 1 drink:

1 peach

1 shot of white rum. I used Myers

1 lime

1 tbls. sugar

3 basil leaves

Peel and coarsely chop the peach. Using a cheesecloth or sieve, create a peach puree. Set aside. In your glass, place a tablespoon of sugar, 3 basil leaves and 1/2 tsp of lime rind and 1 tbsp of lime juice. Muddle the ingredients together. Add the peach puree and rum. mix together and serve over ice.

have guests coming to visit? Welcome them with this drink and I'm pretty sure they may never leave.

happy summer!
