Few ingredients conjure up memories of summer like a perfectly ripened peach. And when you’ve had your fill of peach cobblers, pies and tarts, there’s really only one way to make the most of this sensational summer fruit—in a drink!
We love a good peach daiquiri. It’s a delicious summer sipper that will help you stay cool. So whether you’re in the mood for a cocktail, a mocktail or just something frozen, these are our top ways to make (and enjoy!) a peach daiquiri.
What Kind of Rum Should I Use?
When it comes to peach daiquiris (or any sort of rum cocktail), opt for a white rum, like Bacardi. The spirit’s light and not-too-sweet flavor is perfect for refreshing summery cocktails that won’t overwhelm your taste buds or the other ingredients in your drink.
What Else Can I Add to This Peach Daiquiri Recipe?
You can put your own spin on a peach daiquiri by adding fresh or frozen fruits like raspberries, blueberries, mango or banana. If you want to ramp up that summery peach flavor (and add an extra boozy kick) pour in a splash of peach schnapps before you mix it up. Feel free to garnish the drink with fresh mint, a lime wheel or sliced peaches. This is definitely a place where you can get creative and play around with different flavors!
