Peach Simple Syrup Recipes

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!


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.
