Libations: The Peach & Mango Cobbler

We figured since we are about to embark on a little bit of a journey why not start the day off right with a nice Libation we call “The Peach & Mango Cobler on Ice.” This drink right here packs a serious punch and goes great after dinner on a hot evening.

Crushed ice
2 ½ oz rye whiskey
2 ½ oz peach nectar
Dash bitters
4- 5 wedges frozen peaches cut into a medium sized dice
¼ of a ripe Mango quartered or cut into wedges
3 to 4 fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
1 lemon wedge

Fill a large wine goblet with crushed ice.
Gently muddle the rye, peach nectar, dash of bitters, peaches, mango, mint, and a squeeze of lemon juice in a cocktail shaker.
Pour over ice and serve cold.

Editors Note: At first, the whiskey will pack a mean punch but as the ice melts and mixes with the fruit melt, it will mellow into a wonderful summer drink.
