Cocktail Wednesday - Peach Blow Fizz

This week's cocktail was a Peach Blow Fizz.  Recipe from here.

  • 1 oz light cream
  • 1/2 tsp powdered sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • carbonated water
  • 1/4 peach
  • 2 oz gin
The recipe called for putting the ingredients in a shaker and pouring it over ice and adding the carbonated water. 

The peaches I had were so hard that we decided to throw everything in a blender instead.  I quadrupled the recipe and added crushed iced, then poured it over more ice and added the carbonated water.

I didn't think the drink was peach tasting  enough -- probably because the peaches weren't quite ripe or perhaps they weren't tasty enough -- so anyway, we added peach schnapps. (about 1 oz).  

It was very good and refreshing.  Not sure I'd make it again.  However, if I were at your house and you were offering these, I'd definitely have one ore two.  I might look for another drink with lemon and peach for another cocktail ..

We're taking a break next week  We have a Doctor Who movie event to attend but we should be back in two weeks .. I'll post the drink before then, in case you want to join us (in person or by having your own cocktail wednesday).  If you ever do join us, please let me know...

For some reason I have the thought that lemon and cream would not be a good mix. They look interesting.
