Peachy Misfortunes

I had some fresh peaches lying around the house on this past warm sunny weekend and thought why not experiment with some more peach cocktails. I’ve made some in the past, to more success, but on this occasion, not my most successful pairings. I hope to keep this blog honest and post my unsuccessful creations as well as the successful ones so anyone reading, if wanting to try at home could take from what I learnt and built upon it.

I thought the peach would pair will with Leffe since it was so successful in my other beer cocktail, and for some crazy reason since since the Persimmon Bitter’s used by Cari Hah paired so well with Japanese Whisky, I went for it… crazy idea it was. Looked great, taste, meh.

Then I thought, hmm lets try out that Monaco Friar cocktail I saw in one of the cocktail books and just add Peach to that. Again Meh.

The good Monaco Friar recipe

Ice
2 ounces Scotch
1/2 ounce Bénédictine (brandy-based herbal liqueur)
3 dashes of Angostura bitters
1 lemon twist, for garnish
