Peach Margaritas #sweet4USA

The summer kicked off with a blast of heat and humidity. Sipping on chilled Peach Margaritas is a most delightful way to cool down on a sultry July evening. This post is sponsored by Florida Crystals® Sugar; all opinions are my own.Peach Margaritas | Using peak of the season peaches, these margaritas are out of this world! #sweet4USA

Peach Margaritas

We have a terrific produce stand down the street. Their tender sweet corn and ripe, juicy peaches are my two favorite summer foods. Right now, we’re savoring fresh Georgia peaches, then we’ll get an east coast crop before local Indiana and Michigan peaches are harvested. I set aside some of this luscious fruit for a signature cocktail.Peach Margaritas | Using peak of the season peaches, these margaritas are out of this world! #sweet4USA

Making the Best Margaritas

For the best results, you must start with peak of the season fruit. If your peaches aren’t ripe and flavorful, your margaritas will be lackluster. Freshly squeezed lime juice is imperative, too. Don’t even think of buying anything in a bottle. To balance the tart lime, I also add a top notch sweetener, Florida Crystals® Organic Sugar. Did you know that Florida Crystals® is America’s first and only producer of certified organic sugar, grown and harvested in the Untied States? To me, that sounds like what I’d want to feed my family. Uniquely Delicious.” I’ll vouch for that!

Total Time 10 mins

A summery twist on the classic Margarita made with juicy fresh peaches

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh peach puree (about 2 medium peaches, peeled, pitted, cut into pieces, and pureed in a blender or food processor)
  • 1-2 tablespoons Florida Crystals® Organic Sugar
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1-ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce of Grand Marnier (or your favorite orange liqueur)
  • Florida Crystals® Organic Sugar for sugar rims on glasses
  • Lime slices and/or peach slices to garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Whisk together peach puree and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Taste and add more sugar if needed. Whisk in the tequila, lime juice, and Grand Marnier. Taste and adjust to your preferences.
  2. Pour a bit of water onto a small flat plate. Sprinkle sugar over a second small plate. Dip the rim of the glasses into the water, then dip them into the sugar to make a sugar rim. Garnish margaritas with sliced fruit. Serve margaritas over ice.
  3. For a virgin peach spritzer, combine peach puree, sugar and then top the glass with cold club soda or lemon-lime soda. Makes one.

Recipe Notes

This recipe can be adapted to your liking. I tend to go light on the liquor, so taste first and tweak to your tastes. If your peaches aren't sweet enough, you may need to add more sugar.
