"Peaches are incredibly delicious, especially caramelized on the grill and muddled with your favorite bourbon, grilled lemon, and mint. Strain over ice, make a toast to good times, and enjoy this totally smashing summer refreshment with a good friend."

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 5 mins


1 large peach – halved, stone removed, and skin on

1/2 lemon

1/4 cup white sugar

5 leaves fresh mint

2 fluid ounces simple syrup

3 fluid ounces bourbon (such as Bulleit®)


4 fluid ounces ginger ale, or as needed

Add all ingredients to list


1Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. When the grill is hot, close lid and allow to heat, 5 minutes.

2Place peach halves and lemon, cut-side down, in sugar until coated. Place on the grill; cook until fruits are soft, about 5 minutes. Cool on a cutting board, about 1 minute. Cut peach into slices with a knife; reserve 2 for garnish.

3Place remaining peach, mint leaves, and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker; juice lemon into the shaker. Gently muddle with a cocktail muddler. Pour in bourbon and ice, cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into a chilled glass; top off with ginger ale, and garnish with grilled peach slices and lemon.

4Footnotes Cook's Note: The muddled peach may clog your shaker, in which case you should just open the shaker and pour through a fine mesh strainer. For more rustic drinks, pour the contents of the shaker directly into glasses.
