Ingredients

  • 2 1/2  parts Knob Creek Rye
  • 1/2  part white peach nectar
  • 4-5  fresh mint leaves
  • part ginger beer

Directions

Muddle mint, peach nectar, and Knob Creek Rye in the bottom of a shaker.

Add ice and shake vigorously.

Strain over ice and top with ginger beer.

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
