Crawford County Soda

Crawford County Soda

Vodka Soda is like the exhibition game of cocktails. The Harlem Globetrotters don't play the Washington Generals for the challenge. They do it to show off some sweet tricks.

This cocktail recipe is all about showing off what our Peach Gomme can do. Peach Gomme is spinning the ball on its finger and then ... whoop! ... where'd it go? Between the legs. Sorry, vodka! Peach is the star today.

Our peaches come from Crawford Co. in Georgia, which is home to some of the finest peach farms in the nation. We're proud to participate in this great southern legacy.

INGREDIENTS:

1.5 oz. Vodka

.75 oz. Eli Mason Peach Simple Syrup

3 oz. Club Soda

Build in the glass and top with club soda. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Simon Dedalus

Simon Dedalus

Simon Dedalus is the father of Stephen, the protagonist in James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. As a father, Simon is aloof, but he always emphasizes to Stephen the importance of choosing your friends wisely.

As he sends young Stephen off to school, he advises him to "never peach on a fellow," which is a charming Irish way of saying, "Don't be a tattletale."

Funny, that's the same advice we give to anyone attending our parties. But you know this already. That's why you were invited. Sláinte mhaith!

INGREDIENTS: 

2 oz. Irish Whiskey

1 oz. Eli Mason Peach Simple Syrup

Fresh Black Pepper

Build in a rocks glass over a large chunk of ice and top with one twist of black pepper from a pepper mill. Garnish with a slice of peach.

Peach Gimlet

Peach Gimlet

The Gimlet is to gin what the Old Fashioned is to whiskey - an old standby that can either be a finely-balanced melding of flavors ... or a fruity, syrupy mess. 

Essential to the balance is a high-quality fruit syrup or cordial, which is where our Peach Gomme shines. 

This recipe calls for New American Gin, which is making a name for itself in the cocktail scene. Like its ancestor London Dry, New American Gin is characterized by juniper. But it also incorporates citrus and other local botanicals, flowers, and herbs. We've even heard of a southern gin that includes notes of pecan. 

For gin drinkers, it's a brave new world.

INGREDIENTS:

1.5 oz. New American-style Gin

.75 oz. Eli Mason Peach Gomme Syrup

.75 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

Shake ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled glass with a stem. Garnish with lime and/or peach slice.

Freestone Mojito

Freestone Mojito

Freestone peaches arrive later in the season when it's hot ... when you could really use a tall mojito to cool off. 

Making a proper mojito is not difficult, but it does require a little technique. Most important is not to over-muddle the mint. It should be slightly bruised, not shredded. And always, always use fresh-squeezed lime juice. There is no substitute.

This recipe makes use of the convenient and hilariously-named dirty dump, which means simply dumping the entire contents of your shaker into the glass. No straining required, which is why it's even more important not to over-muddle the mint.

INGREDIENTS:

1.5 oz. White Rum

1 oz. Eli Mason Peach Simple Syrup

1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

6 Fresh Mint Leaves

Club Soda (optional)

Gently muddle the mint before adding the other ingredients and shaking with ice. Dirty Dump the entire contents of shaker into a Collins glass and garnish with fresh mint. Top up with club soda (optional) and serve with a straw.

Martini Melba

Martini Melba

Peach Melba ... the dessert of divas. This peach-and-raspberry delight was invented in London in the early 1890s to honor soprano Nellie Melba. And now you can honor your guests with this colorful treat.

Unlike many sopranos, peach plays well with other flavors, especially berries. This is a sweeter drink and makes use of the Double Strain to ensure a smooth texture without too many floating bits of fruit.

A perfect dessert cocktail.

INGREDIENTS:

2 oz. Vodka

1.25 oz. Eli Mason Peach Simple Syrup

.75 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

4 Fresh Raspberries

Muddle raspberries before adding the other ingredients and shaking with ice. Double strain into a martini glass and garnish with fresh raspberries.
