Just 5 ingredients for this grilled peach whiskey smash!

I thought we could all use a summery cocktail for August sipping. I mean, we gotta enjoy these warm summer nights while we can, right?

I saw this recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine and immediately knew I wanted to make it over and over again. There’s grilled peaches and lemon, fresh herbs like mint and basil, a little honey, and bourbon whiskey. Smash it all together, serve it over ice with a splash of club soda, and there you have it— summer in a glass.

Tips and suggestions

  • I love the flavor that grilling the peach slices and lemon gives to the cocktail, but you can skip it if you want!
  • If you do grill, lightly brush peaches with oil or cooking spray before grilling to prevent sticking.
  • You can easily double (or triple, quadruple!) the recipe to make more than one cocktail.
  • Feel free to use either fresh mint or basil, or add both (my personal choice).
  • To make this non-alcoholic, omit the honey and swap the bourbon for lemonade. My kids love it!
