Since I've been doing this blog series for over a year,
I'm starting to run low on cocktails I want to make,
(Side note - please send me your suggestions!)
so I've started adding different twists to cocktails I've already featured.

And today I'm adding my own spin on Adam's Mint Julep.
I'm making the last bit of Summer count,
and incorporating some fresh juicy peaches to make a Peach Mint Julep!
I was inspired by this recipe and made slight modifications.

The Goods:
Club Soda

Make your peach simple syrup by combining the following:
1/2 Cup Sugar, 1/2 Cup Water, 1 Peach - sliced. 
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until syrup is dissolved.

Remove peaches and let syrup cool completely.

Crush a whole bunch of ice.

Add crushed ice and fresh sliced peaches to a glass.

Add torn pieces of fresh mint leaves on top of ice.

Add one shot of whiskey
and one tablespoon peach simple syrup.

Top with club soda
and garnish with mint and a peach slice.

Take a sip, sit back and enjoy the last bit of Summer!
