Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 2/3 of a Fresh Peach
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 of a Fresh (Orange Juiced)
  • Seltzer water or Club Soda
  • Ice
  • 10oz Glass
Place the brown sugar in the glass, then place 3-4 mint leaves in the glass with the sugar and gently muddle them with your muddler or other tool (I used a pestle).   Stop when you start to smell the mint.  Be sure not to tear or over smash the mint, doing so will make your drink bitter (Yuk!).

Then slice and add 2/3 of a fresh peach.  Muddle that as well, stop when the level of the juice is above the fruit, and don't worry about over muddling the fruit, the more juice you have the tastier your drink will be!
