Today is National Peach Cobbler Day. Why today? I haven’t a clue. But I’m sure it’s a wonderful opportunity for Paula Dean to make another sickly sweet Southern dessert involving far too many sticks of butter (I can feel my arteries clogging as I write this).
Rather than bake a Peach Cobbler on this designated day, let’s instead stir up a few scrumptious White Peach cocktails, using our Hiram Walker White Peach Schnapps. Both of these recipes can be found on the Hiram Walker website.
White Peach Blossom Martini – So simple; so sweet!
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
White Peach Paloma – Brightens up the flavors from your classic margarita!
1 oz. Gold Tequila
¾ oz. Hiram Walker White Peach Schnapps
2 oz. Fresh Sour Mix
1 oz. Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
Combine ingredients in shaker w/ ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into glass w/ ice and salt rim. Garnish with lime corkscrew and a frozen peach slice and serve.
These two tipples make for a great deck or patio sipper right now, as the White Peach Schnapps – just like its true fruit counterpart – is at its seasonal peak!
