The Best Peach Daiquiri Recipe for Two

The Only Peach Daiquiri Recipe You’ll Ever Need

On our way up to Napa a few weeks ago, we stopped at one of the incredible Merry Cherry’s fruit stands, and bought a basket of cherries and two peaches that we bit into right then and there, unwashed, letting the juice drip down our arms. It was a spiritual experience. Since then, I’ve eaten peaches at every possible chanceโ€”in North Carolina over the Fourth, and last weekend from our local farmer’s market.

If my dad taught me anything, it’s that peaches are best served in a glass over rum (or in a bowl churned into ice cream, but that’s another story). It was another hot day in LA last Sunday, so we took those juicy babies and turned them into an icy grown-up thirst-quencher. Scroll down for the recipe.

    Omg that sounds and looks and seems incredible even for me as a teetotaler! Must have one asap. Guess I’ll have to buy rum for the first time in my life, lol. I think I’ll try this on Hvar where the peaches are sweetest and juiciest and my aunt has her terrace where we all congregate for pastries and refreshment. My relatives will all appreciate this since none of them are teetotalers!
