Peach Ginger Moscow Mule Mocktail

I was pleasantly surprised to see fresh peaches still at the grocery store this week. I love ripe, juicy nectarines and peaches in the Summer. So, when I saw them this week I bought I whole box. The last couple of weeks have been crazy with work and travel, so we needed a little Monday afternoon treat yesterday. I made these yummy Peach Ginger Mock-Moscow Mules for my family and we might have also poured this yummy Peach Ginger sauce over vanilla ice cream as well.

If it involves Ginger Beer, I’m a FAN! So, any version of a Moscow Mule is a hit with me. This is a great make-ahead mocktail. Make the Peach Ginger sauce, and then just store it in the fridge. When you are ready to serve this yummy mocktail, just mix a little syrup with your favorite ginger beer and you are done!

In a blender, place the peaches, ginger, lime, sugar and water. Blend of high to make a smooth puree. Pour the puree into a small pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a slow simmer. Simmer for 5 mins. Remove from the heat and pour through a fine metal sieve to remove any large pieces of pulp. Pour into a glass bottle and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.

To make the drink, fill a glass with ice add about 2 ounces of the peach syrup (add more of less depending on how sweet you like it). Top off the glass with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with a slice of peach and lime.

And if you would like a spiked version of this drink, a splash of vodka can definitely be added.
