I had some extra peaches leftover from the farmers market, and they were starting to look a little sad. But instead of tossing them out, I decided to make a delicious cocktail using the peaches to make a Peach Simple Syrup!
This Peach Gin Fizz uses fresh summer peaches (made into a peach simple syrup), combined with a mixture of your favorite gin, mint and fizzy club soda. It’s super simple and great for a hot day!
Ready to make this delicious Peach Gin Fizz? Let’s do it!
1 - Make Peach Simple Syrup. Combine sugar, water, peaches and mint in a small pot. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat and let gently simmer for 30 minutes. The peaches should be soft and the sugar should be completely dissolved. Remove from heat, strain (save those peaches!), let cool to room temperature and chill in the fridge.
2 - Mix drink. Combine ice, gin, and simple syrup. Stir or shake to combine (I often combine them in a mason jar, shaking to combine) and pour into glasses.
3 - Top off with club soda and garnish with a couple peach slices (use the discarded peaches from the Peach Simple Syrup!) and mint leaves. Enjoy!
Peach Gin Fizz: Tips, Tricks and Tools
You don’t need much in terms of tools, but it’s helpful to have a cocktail shaker or mason jar (we just use a mason jar). You’ll also need eco-friendly cookware and serving glasses.
Save the peaches from the Peach Simple Syrup. Don’t let them go to waste - I like to add them to the finished drink instead of fresh peaches. Though you could also use the simple syrup peaches over ice cream or in oatmeal (I also did this and it’s so delicious).
Make it a mocktail by omitting the gin and using a bit more club soda.
