RECIPE: Peach Fuzz Delight

Did you over do it this Labor Day weekend?!

If so, let celebrate the end of summer with a truly delicious concoction!   If not, let’s still celebrate summer’s end with this delicious concoction!

A dear friend brought over peaches, rum and one of those frozen Lime-aid cans. Delighted by her having brought over peaches, rum and enthusiasm for fun, I hated to eject her Lime-aid from the line up. But with high-fructose corn syrup and numerous radio-active chemicals and dyes, I simply could not let artificial ingredients hijack our fun– especially when I had the REAL ingredients to substitute. ( FYI Limes, ice and honey = a  tastier, healthier version of lime-aid.)

She was skeptical, I could tell.  Or just thought it was super rude of me to suggest her summer cocktail of choice was somehow deficient. Which it was (rude). But I can confidently say, we both thoroughly enjoyed the new and improved “Peach Fuzz Delight” (we’re calling it)!   And by thoroughly I mean, thoroughly.

You ready for the fun?

In a blender combine:

2 large, juicy-ripe peaches, pitted

2 limes, peeled

1 inch of lime rind

3 heaping Tbsp honey

1 cup Rum

1/4 cup H20

3-5 cups of ice (how thick and frosty do you want it?)
