I truly believe that every wednesday is cause for celebration; it’s Hump Day. The light at the end of the Work week tunnel nears, freedom is in the air, and a weekend of boozing and celebrating await. This concept came into my head and immediately 112’s Peaches and Cream came into my head. Needless to say, this drink is G rated, I promise, and OG certified.
I will say this, the recipe calls for a bit of technique, so if you are completely new to the game, I would put this one on the back burner until you’re confident. But REMEMBER… if you don’t try, you will never know your potential.
Most important to note with this recipe, you HAVE to dry shake the ingredients first before adding the ice. What’s dry shaking? Shaking the cocktail shaker vigorously WITHOUT ICE. That’s right. No ice. Don’t worry, we cool it down later. But again, practice your shaking skills before heading into this one.
