Deliver Ingredients


For a bottle of honey-sriracha syrup, I combined ½ cup sriracha, ½ cup honey, and ¾ cup water on the stove until all the solids were dissolved, and then allowed the syrup to cool.

For the peach puree, I pitted, skinned, and then blended a dozen fresh peaches with the juice from a lemon, then scooped the puree into an airtight container.

The puree should last up to 3 days in the fridge, the syrup over a week. The above recipe serves 1 person, but the amount of syrup and puree was for a whole party.


  • ½ Ounce Honey-Sriracha syrup
  • 1 ½ Ounce peach puree
  • 1 ½ Ounce Avión tequila
  • Seltzer to top


In a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice, combine the honey-sriracha syrup, peach purée, and tequila. Shake until cold, then strain into a coupe glass. Top with seltzer and garnish with a fresh peach slice.

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
