Peach Mint Margarita


August is National Peach Month and there is no better way to enjoy this fruit than in this delicious margarita!

August is National Peach Month and, being from Savannah, GA, of course I had to pay tribute to this observation! I love peaches in the summertime whether in baked goods, or better yet, roasted with a dallop of marscapone cream (A-MAZING). Another way I like to enjoy a tasty peach is in a cocktail. And this Peach Mint Margarita is no exception!

This recipe is pretty simple. The majority of the work involves making a mint simple syrup, which genuinely only takes a few minutes. You also need about half a fresh peach per serving, some fresh lime juice and, of course, a little tequila and triple sec. I also added some sparkling prickly pear orange drink to this batch, but you can have fun with the citrus ingredient and add what you love! It also works great with simple orange juice!
