Recipe: Frozen Peach Bourbon Mule
In a blender, combine the bourbon, fresh peaches, lime juice, and ginger beer. Add ice and blend, starting on the lowest setting and increasing to the highest setting. Add more ice if you desire a thicker consistency. Pour the frozen peach bourbon mule into copper mugs, if you have them; otherwise, any cocktail glass will suffice. Garnish with fresh sprigs of mint and lime wheels.
If peaches aren't in season, you can easily substitute frozen peaches. Just be aware that you may use a little less ice. I like to freeze seasonal fresh fruit when it's abundant and less expensive so that I can "eat in season" whenever I'd like.
If you can, use crushed ice. Your cocktail will blend easier and make a smoother drink. If you can't find crushed ice, make your own by wrapping ice cubes in a kitchen towel and smashing them with a meat tenderizer or mallet.
Take the time to pre-chill your ingredients, so that the ice remains cold and doesn't quickly dilute the drink, when you mix it.
Want to make this cocktail even lighter? Look for Reed's Extra Ginger Brew Light, which uses fruit concentrates and stevia to sweeten things up.
