Cheers to Auntie Peach Gazda, an effervescent spirit who was sweet as a peach. If you were lucky enough to spend some thyme with her, you may have become love-drunk from her presence of pure joy, frivolity, and sometimes mischief… not unlike this cocktail we toast her with!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Glassware: Coupe or Martini
Fill shaker with ice then add the peach nectar and whiskey over ice. Add honey and thyme and shake vigorously for 1-2 minutes or until shaker is cold to touch.
Divide into coupe glasses, add a splash of elderflower soda.
Finish by garnishing with a slice of peach and sprig of thyme.
Toast the fond memories of a fine friend and adopted Auntie!
Retro Rad Tip: Make own peach nectar by peeling a peach and removing pit. Place in blender with 3 tablespoons of water and 2 tablespoons of honey. Blend until smooth.
Retro Rad Remix: If you want the flavors to really infuse, allow the peach nectar, whiskey, honey, and thyme to macerate together overnight and then add elderflower soda and shake with ice.
