Ok guys I just want you to know that this cocktail seriously rocks! I am so for real about this. I made this cocktail because I had some peaches that I was about to throw away literally. One more day and they would have been too far gone (and I really, really hate to waste produce). I also had the grill out, and in 90℉ weather that’s a big deal. Think hot, sticky, humid weather and then add a 450℉ grill-not pretty my friends, not pretty. But alas, I powered through and was rewarded with this super delicious sweet, spicy, smoky cocktail. Someones gotta do it.
I bet you are wondering how I still have beautiful basil in my neck of the woods. I’ve got a little gardening secret for you–every August I cut my basil, thai basil, and dill completely back and I get entirely new plants full of delicious leaves. It doesn’t start getting cool here at night until October so my garden is still somewhat thriving, if not a little wilted.
