Peach Margaritas

Grab the margarita glasses and celebrate warm summer evenings with a pitcher of these Peach Margaritas!  Cheers!A couple of weeks ago (July 4th weekend to be more exact), I hopped in the car with 3 other guys and headed down to Long Island.  Our car was packed with several duffel bags…and 4 curling brooms.  Yup, we decided to play in a curling tournament…in July.  Needless to say, it was a bit of a shock to step foot into the arena wearing our shorts and t-shirts.  The bonspiel (that’s curling lingo for a tournament) was hosted by the Long Island Curling Club, and they did an amazing job!  Really nice folks, really great food, really fun weekend all around.  Our team had a good run, but we lost in the semi-finals of the main event.  Perhaps next year…

So why did I mention what we had packed in the car on the way down?  That’s because we had a lot more packed in the car for the return trip north.  Like 38 bottles of wine and liquor more.  The Long Island Curling Club is raising money for a dedicated facility (right now they share ice with a local hockey club), and they hosted a raffle to help raise money.  I figured I’d help the cause, so I bought several tickets.  Turns out I won the grand prize – a wheelbarrow (yes, a wheelbarrow) full of wine and liquor!  Packing the car was a bit of a challenge to say the least.  A good challenge to have, but a challenge nonetheless.  (The wheelbarrow got donated to one of the Long Island Curling Club members…)

Laura and I brainstormed some ideas, and we settled on a couple of “signature” cocktails.  By signature, I mean cocktail ideas where we made sure to have the other mixers/ingredients out on the table, too.  Since we’re still enjoying summer fruit season, I decided to whip up a batch or two of Peach Margaritas.  Laura and I love a good margarita, and we typically go towards the spicy end of things with these Jalapeno Margaritas.  However, this time we went sweet with a pitcher of Peach Margaritas.  Yum!

I served these Peach Margaritas in traditional margarita glasses garnished with slices of fresh peach and lime.  However, before pouring the mixture into the glasses, I dipped the rims of the glasses in either salt or sugar.  For the Jalapeno Margaritas, I’ll always go with a salted rim, but here I preferred the sugar rim.  Either way, these Peach Margaritas are a fun way to enjoy a hot summer afternoon in the backyard.  We only have a few weeks of summer left, so get out there and soak in those rays!  Cheers, my friends!

  1. Here’s the money quote: “Folks tend to like free liquor.” Truer words were never said. 😉 Especially when the liquor comes in the form of a margarita.

    1. This must be torture watching American (or at least Northern hemisphere) friends post so many summer recipes right now, Alexandra! Of course, you get to return the favor in a few months when we’re buried in snow. Haha! Save this recipe for the warmer days, my friend!

    1. Yeah, I was standing there looking at that wheelbarrow thinking “Holy Cow, that’s a lot of liquor.” Also, “How am I going to explain this to Laura.” 🙂 Thanks, Kathy!

  2. These margaritas sound delicious, David! Cool to see you out on the ice! My sister recently moved to a town near Minneapolis, and her town has a curling center! The curling center has a restaurant, which she took me to, and we ate cheese curds while we watched the curling through a glass wall. I thought of you!

    1. Wow, that must be some curling center! It has it’s own restaurant!? I mean we have a kitchen in our club, but it’s far from a restaurant. I’ve curled against a couple of teams from Minnesota over the years. Good folks! Glad you got a chance to go and see some live action curling, my friend!

    Beautiful! I’m all in for the sugar rim. This past weekend I bought SO MANY delicious peaches — all different varieties — at the Farmers Market. I might just have to put a few in some glasses. 😉 ~Valentina

    1. Yes! If you can manage to part with a couple of those peaches, then I can say with absolute certainty that they go well in a margarita glass. 🙂

    Hey, wait, where was my invite?? Lol! Sounds like quite the backyard party! And I’m totally happy to hear you say that frozen peaches are preferred because I have a bag in our freezer – yay me! These look so icy and refreshing and just perfect for our time off next week while on the deck! Cheers, my friend 🙂

    1. Haha! Come on down, Dawn…we have plenty of liquor! Turns out it’s hard to drink a wheelbarrow full. 🙂 Enjoy the time off this week, and I hope a peach margarita (or two) happens to land in your hand!

  5. oh yum david. these look splendid for a summer’s night. i must keep them in mind when we get to summer:) cheers and bottoms up sherry

    1. It must be terrible watching us northern hemisphere bloggers post all these summer recipes! However, you get to take revenge in a couple of months when we’re buried in snow. 🙂 Definitely save this idea for the warmer months, my friend!

    Peach Margaritas eh? What a novel idea. And well done for winning that wheelbarrow of goodies at the bonspiel. If you need any help in drinking your treasure just give me a shout and I’ll be right over! Ha ha!

    1. Shout! There ya go. That’s an invite. I’d welcome the help with the wheelbarrow of liquor, Neil, and we can even chat curling as I recall you saying you curled some years ago. 🙂 Cheers, my friend!

  7. i saw a fabulous video of kangaroos hopping around in the snow today. Usually photos show them in the outback, so this was a surprise. it’s quite icy down south and even here in brisbane, we are feeling the pinch tho it is a blue sky day with no clouds and lots of sun…

    1. Kangaroos in snow? Now there’s an image you don’t see too often! I’m enjoying our summer right now, but it’s already starting to get cooler overnight. Fall is just around the corner for us. Stay warm, Sherry!

    1. Haha! I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw your bellinis! I love peaches, and I love cocktails…so it just makes sense to combine them, right? Cheers, my friend!
