Peach Bourbon Lemonade
Ohh hola summer in South Texas, thank you for gracing us with your intense heat and humidity… thank you for gracing us with an endless summer supply of plump blackberries, vibrant watermelons and sweet peaches.
I love you Texas …there’s no other place I would rather live. I recently scooped up the prettiest peaches from a roadside stand. I made agua fresca and paletas, but set a few aside for sister time.
Sister time is where my sisters hang out, sipping cocktails, enjoying nibbles and catching up. We try to have sister time at least once a week. I live for sister time as I my sisters inspire me, they are truly one of my greatest blessings.
I whipped up this peach bourbon lemonade for our sister time session, it was well received, sweet with a punch of bourbon. A perfectly perfect Texas summer cocktail enjoy this peach bourbon lemonade with the special people in your life.
