Peach Dog Perfect Cocktail

I’m not a huge fan of white dog whiskey. It’s unaged whiskey. I like the magic that happens when liquor spends some time in barrels. I bought a bottle of white dog whiskey to get to know it more, and it slowly moved to the back of my booze boat. Then I decided to give the white dog whiskey another try with a Peach & Rosemary Syrup I created. A big glug of fresh lemon juice, a generous splash of ginger beer, and the Peach Dog Perfect Cocktail was born. I wasn’t missing that barrel time any more with this appealing garden cocktail.

Peach Dog Perfect Cocktail

Peach Dog Perfect Cocktail

  • 2 ounces white dog whiskey (feel free to use bourbon instead)
  • 1 ounce Peach & Rosemary Syrup
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 ounces ginger beer
  • big spoonful of diced peaches from the Peach & Rosemary Syrup
  • sprig of rosemary for garnish

Mix the whiskey, syrup, lemon juice and ginger beer in your mixing glass. Add ice cubes, the diced peaches and the sprig of rosemary.

Peach & Rosemary Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 2 peeled peaches, diced into bite-size pieces

Bring everything to a low simmer, stirring frequently until the sugar dissolves. Simmer on low for 10-15 minutes. Cool to room temperature, and transfer to a glass jar, and refrigerate. Let the rosemary steep in the syrup for another day, and then remove.
