Summertime Breeze

Day 360



Summertime Breeze
5 shots out of 5


It's Saturday!  It is a beautiful day out which makes me long for the summer.  Since it is such a nice day I decided to create a nice cocktail to go along with it.  When I am done with today's blog I am going to make another one and go sit out in the backyard and enjoy it.

I gave today's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  Boy is this a refreshing cocktail.  The lemonade and peach puree go SO well together it's amazing!  The scary thing about it is the fact that I do not taste the alcohol inside of it.....what.......so......ever!  This would be a good cocktail to have at a summer barbecue for sure.  It's a really amazing color to which in my eyes makes it taste that much better as well.  Even though I only have 6 more cocktails to go after today to complete my year, I am not stopping there.  I won't be posting each and every day, but I will still be here so if you have any favorite cocktail recipes that you would like me to try, please send them into me.

Here is my recipe for Summertime Breeze:

  • 1 oz rum
  • 1 oz peach puree
  • 1 oz lemonade
  • 1/4 oz grenadine
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and dump everything into a short cocktail glass and enjoy!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to another scrumptious self-created cocktail!

Cheers!!

  2. It certainly sounds good and is a gorgeous color. How long do those purees last once you open them? I've never gotten any as I was afraid I would not use them before they went bad.

    1. Isn't it pretty!! The puree's need to be refrigerated and I have had them for quite a few months just sitting in my fridge. A couple get used more then others and I have replaced them, but the rest are still the original ones I bought a while back.

      My husband and oldest make smoothies for the family from time to time with them. They mix ice, purees (different flavors together) and vanilla yogurt or even ice cream together in the blender, boy are they delicious!!
