I turned 45 years old today.
I don’t feel a day past 35, maybe even younger.
Age is such a strange thing. I see the gray coming in and the crow’s feet beginning, yet, I welcome the calm in this stage of life (most of the time!) and the wisdom that if I’m lucky, comes with aging. I have a fantastic life and I am blessed beyond what I could have ever hoped for. I have a loving and healthy family and sweet friends with open hearts and open arms.
Life is good.
Grilled Peach Cocktails
2 Fresh Ripe Organic Peaches, peeled and sliced. plus 1 more for garnish
1 1/2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
Juice of 2 Limes
1/2 Cup of White Rum
1 1/4 ounces Maraschino Liquor
6 ounces of Cold Peppermint Herbal Tea
2 Cups Ice
Toss the peaches gently in the brown sugar.
Grill the peaches on a very hot grill. Not too long, just long enough to slightly caramelize the sugar and leave a few grill marks.
Remove from grill.
Place the peaches with juice and sugars, and all remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Makes 4 eight ounce cocktails.
Grilled peaches and booze? I”m in, April, and keep ’em coming. This sounds like a fantastic cocktail.
It was QUITE nice, I had plenty. 🙂
I didn’t know you could grill the peaches before blending them. I’ll have to try this. Looks very pretty. And happy 45th birthday! I’m in my 40’s too and yes, I still feel like I’m in my 30’s xx
