Peach

Peach ingredient for cocktails

Peaches are perhaps the king of stone fruit: juicy, sweet, and fragrant. Peaches come in between 14-18 Brix (a unit that represents sugar content), making them one of the sweetest fruits available.

Peaches, like most stone fruit, are highly seasonal. They’re still sold outside of the growing season, but tend to have a much lower sugar content and the flesh can be very hard and unappealing.

To make the best incarnations of the cocktails below, stick to the growing season – typically mid-to-late summer.

Peaches are similar to nectarines – in fact, they’re the same species! Nectarines are fuzz-less but otherwise pretty much the same when it comes to using them as cocktail ingredients.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
