The Cocktail Hour
Bar Manager of MO Bar + Lounge, Steve Minor, has shared a recipe for one of the bar’s signature summer cocktails, a Southern Swizzle. Featuring one of the South’s most beloved ingredients, the peach, it’s a refreshing cocktail for summertime entertaining. The sweetness of the peach liqueur and nectar is offset by the spicy ginger beer; it’s a wonderful pairing of flavors.
This summertime cocktail is unique and refreshing. The sweetness from the peach liqueur and nectar is tempered with the spicy ginger beer and bitters. MO Bar + Lounge serves the cocktail in a Julep cup, which keeps the drink well-chilled. We liked serving it in a clear glass to show the color of the cocktail. Either way, it’s delicious.
1 1/2 ounces 4 Roses Yellow Label Bourbon
1 1/2 ounces Peach Nectar
1/2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce Crème De Peche
3 leaves fresh mint
Splash Ginger Beer
