Hurry! Summer won’t last forever!

Of all the cocktails I have ever made, this has to be one of the very best!

It may be the best because it’s a welcomed heat and thirst-quenching frozen concoction that tames the sweltering hot Tennessee summer or maybe because I used fresh, sweet and juicy Georgia peaches from The Peach Truck. Or, could it be Tennessee’s own smooth Belle Meade BourbonWhiskey that makes this frozen cocktail absolutely rock? This may just be one of the best collaborations of ingredients that I have ever whipped up. Just about everyday of the week during the summer months The Peach Truck(s) travel from Georgia to Nashville on its weekly Small Town Peach Tour . Bags of the juicy summer jewels go fast at all the Nashville locations. From a few of Nashville’s store parking lots to weekly local farm’s markets, these juicy Georgia peaches come rolling in to eager Nashville peach-lovers!

I love these Georgia peaches right out of the bag but how delightful they are when frozen and blended with Tennessee’s finest Bourbon.

Andy Nelson and Charlie Nelson resurrected Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery that was founded in the 1800’s by their great-great-great grandfather Charles Nelson! You must read this fascinating family story of how it all began in 1835 and how Andy and Charles have continued this historical family business since 2006.

Peach and Bourbon Pairing

 What pairs more perfectly than summer-ripened Georgia peaches and a smooth yet bold bourbon with hints of vanilla and caramel and finished with flavors of stone fruits such as cherry, plum and apricot? Peach and Lemon Whole Fruit Sorbet highlight the spices and citrus to create a stellar summer cocktail that you and your friends will want for any and all summer gatherings!
