Whisky Peach Alexander
Author: 
Serves: 1 cocktail
 
Roasted peaches give this lush cocktail a rich peach flavor.
Ingredients
  • 2 oz. roasted peach puree
  • 1 oz. whisky
  • 1 oz. half & half
  • peach puree:
  • 2-3 peaches
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Start by making the roasted peach puree. You can do this several days in advance and store the puree in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Halve the peaches and toss the halves with the sugar. Place the peaches cut side down in a lightly greased baking dish and spoon any leftover sugar over the top. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, until the peaches begin to slump and the juices are bubbling and syrupy. Remove from the oven and cool enough to handle. Remove the skins by pinching from the center and gently pulling. Puree the peaches and syrup in a blender (a hand blender or food processor will work, too) with the lemon juice. Pour the puree into a jar and cool completely before using. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
  2. For the cocktail:
  3. In a cocktail shaker or measuring glass, stir the peach puree, whisky, and half & half with ice until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into coupe glasses.
