An “Alberta” Peach of a Bourbon drink made with Maker’s Mark, mint, and Miss Flighty’s Ginger Cardamom syrup, muddled vigorously and topped with ginger beer. Wait until peaches are in season and soft and juicy; never puree, add slices as you muddle and allow fresh fruit to soak up the bourbon and ginger syrup in the bottom of the glass and make for a fun “fishing” expedition on a lazy summer afternoon.
- If your peaches are not ripe, slice and submerge in Flighty Ginger Syrup for and hour or two, and voila! extra flavor and easy blending.
- If you don’t have time to make a batch of the flavored syrup whip substitute simple syrup or barfine sugar (to taste) and thin slices of fresh ginger muddled vigorously for a quick and easy version of the recipe.
