A Bourbon Peach Slush is the perfect frozen summer cocktail! Bourbon and peaches are blended together to make a fun, easy and delicious boozy slush!Peach season won’t be around much longer and it makes me sad because I just love my Colorado peaches so darn much! I haven’t had a bad one all summer. They’ve all been sweet, juicy, and peachy perfection.
To make sure I can still have my peaches during the snowy months I’ve been freezing them. Yes, I’m that weirdo that still enjoys cold frozen things when it’s snowing outside. Of course frozen is never as good as fresh, but there are still lots of things to make with frozen peaches, like this Bourbon Peach Slush!
Best Way to Freeze Peaches
Cut a small, shallow ‘x’ in the skin of the peach. Blanch the peaches in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Immediately place them into ice water.
Peel the skin off of the peaches, remove the pits and slice them.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the slices in a single layer on it.
Place the baking sheet in the freezer and flash freeze them for a couple hours.
Store the peaches in an airtight sealed freezer bag.
I’ve always been a fan of peaches, but it wasn’t until the last year or so that I discovered how much I enjoy bourbon as well. I love the rich smoky flavor it has and how it’s not only great for cocktails, but cooking and baking as well. It also turns out that peaches and bourbon are a phenomenal combination together.
Making the Bourbon Peach Slush is not only simple, but uses just five ingredients. Frozen peaches, bourbon, ginger beer (or ginger ale), lime juice, and a little sugar are all you need to whip up this dangerously delicious frozen cocktail.
Simply add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. It literally takes less than 5 minutes. The flavor is a perfect balance of bourbon and peaches, so if you like those two things then you’ll love this drink!
These slushes would be perfect for serving during a football party, a fun weekend with your girlfriends, or in my case my weekly Sunday 5 o’clock happy hour! Get those juicy peaches in the freezer so you can whip up one of these fantastic slushes whenever the mood hits you!
