Peaches and Cream Cocktail #FantasticalFoodFight

I love the Fantastical Food Fight coordinated by Sarah of Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. For more information about the event, click here. I haven't been very good at participating, but this month, I couldn't resist. We were given the challenge of making a recipe with peaches and cream. So. Many. Possibilities.

It is peach season, after all. Try as I might, I couldn't come up with a savory peaches and cream recipe. Savory peach recipes, yes; but nothing with peaches and cream! Jake suggested peach cobbler with whipped cream. Fantastic idea...I'll need you to swap out that oven for me first. Hmmm...

Peaches and Cream Cocktail

Ingredients makes 1 cocktail

  • 3 parts bourbon
  • 1 part heavy whipping cream
  • 1 part peach puree
  • 1 part maple syrup
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • thin peach slices for garnish
  • Also needed: ice, cocktail shaker

Fill cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Pour in the bourbon, cream, peach puree, and maple syrup. Add in a dash of cinnamon. Shake for at least 30  seconds. Strain into a serving glass. Garnish with fresh peach slices. Cheers!


  1. I came "this close" to making a peaches and cream martini! I just happen to have all of the ingredients for this cocktail. I know what I'm having tomorrow.

  2. This sounds so yummy!! Great FFF recipe!

  3. If only I liked bourbon... It looks amazing!

  4. Glad you got in under the wire....this sounds like the perfect poolside cocktail.

  5. So glad you got this recipe in on time for the food's really making me feel the need to make a drink! Sounds amazing!

  6. This sounds so so so good. Just the type of drink to share with friends.

  7. Cobbler would be yummy - but not as creative as this cocktail! Glad you could link it up in time.

  8. Mmmm I love that you made a beverage because it just added so much variety to the Food Fight! :) It looks super tasty.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
