I have been a bad blogger. Things have (thankfully) really started to pick up in my life, but unfortunately that means less time for cooking and blogging. Working two internships, going to summer school, celebrating 21st birthdays, and preparing for my sorority’s upcoming recruitment has made things a little crazy. While I am glad that I am busy (summer was getting a littttleeee boring), I am sad because I don’t have all that much time to devote to cooking all the awesome recipes I have lurking in the corners of my mind.
Therefore, when I do cook I need to put together things that are quick and don’t require a lot of attention. I love making drinks (I’m taking a mixology class later this month with my friend Austen!), and they are definitely the quickest and easiest thing to make. Plus, who doesn’t love a good cocktail? This girl sure does.
As I’ve mentioned before, there is a restaurant in Davis called Bistro 33 that has AWESOME mojitos, my favorite flavor of which is peach. They use peach flavored rum there, but I decided to switch it up by using some peaches from the farmers market and making my own peach puree. These drinks came out so delicious (kind of a dangerous thing!), and Andrew and I enjoyed them with our BBQ pizza.
Fresh Peach Mojitos
- 1 peach (make as much peach puree as you want – I pureed three peaches and it was enough for about….five drinks)
- juice of one lime
- a few cubes of ice
- 1 – 1 1/2 shots of white rum
- handful of mint leaves
- club soda
