Summer is in FULL SWING here. We are hitting a record breaking heatwave in the ICT and there is no end in sight. Like over 100 degrees for the next 10+ days or more, no end in sight. Basically the only want to stay cool is to be inside in the AC or floating in a pool. I recommend either of those ideas and pairing it with a refreshing frozen cocktail. This frozen lemonade cannot be beat and is so simple to make! You can also easily omit the bourbon and have a DELICIOUS mocktail. I’ve tried it both ways! I made mine straight in an insulated tumbler with an immersion blender and walked right out to the pool. To make this directly in the tumbler you need to use crushed ice. Regular ice works great too, but you’ll have to pull out a regular blender. The recipe below is for a tumbler so it’s a bit boozy, but NO FUSS!
So let’s make one!
Here’s what you need:
- 3 oz bourbon
- 1/2 heaping cup frozen peaches
- 4 oz Santa Cruz Organic lemonade
- 1 oz honey simple syrup
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- 4-6 basil leaves
- 1 cup crushed ice
In a tumbler (or blender) combine all of your ingredients. Gently submerge your immersion blender into the tumbler to blend. I recommend doing this over the sink juuuust in case you get splashing. Blend until the mixture is nice and smooth. Pop on the lid to your tumbler or pour into a glass and enjoy! CHEERS to staying cool this summer!
