This cocktail is a delicious blend of some of my favourite flavours, and is one of the four unique cocktails crafted for the ladies on The Social. Blending El Dorado 12 Yr Rum, Disaronno Amaretto, Seared Peach and fresh paprika, you got a cocktail you can love all summer long!
If you’ve been following Liquid Culture since Day 1, than you know my OG love for peaches. With summer approaching and peach season sweeping in, this is the perfect fruit to match up with your tiki party.
The concept of this special drink segment was to create fun and unique cocktail recipes for your Summer Tiki Party. Now just because it’s tiki, doesn’t mean every cocktail is served in a tiki mug. Instead, I serve this delicious imbibe up, mixed with a wonderful Demerara rum, Disaronno Amaretto, seared peach with a touch of paprika. It’s a refreshing hit of spice, sweet, citrus and heat that I LOVE in a cocktail.
If you’d like to see how this cocktail is made, make sure to follow this link for my episode on The Social. Hold tight if it isn’t up yet, because it is filmed live. But in case you can’t wait, check out the recipe here!
