This Peach Bourbon Smash is a delightfully refreshing drink that’s simply perfect for summer. This recipe is ready to go in only 5 minutes. Increase the quantity and make a whole pitcher’s worth for your next backyard BBQ. Sip it while lounging in your hammock or while sitting around the bonfire making S’mores.
Bourbon and peaches complement each other so well. Add in that little touch of vanilla syrup and it all comes together in a scrumptious combination of flavors you’re going to love. Top it off with the sparkling water and this tasty drink will be dancing on your tongue. Add a maraschino cherry if you want for an extra pop of color!
PEACH BOURBON SMASH
I prefer a proper muddler but don’t let the lack of one stop you from making this yummy drink. A wooden mallet (the kind for tenderizing meat) or wooden spoon will do in a pinch. No cocktail shaker? Try a mason jar. I wouldn’t want the lack of equipment to stop you from trying this delicious beverage.

As a former bartender though, if you’re planning to do some entertaining on a regular basis, I’m going to suggest that you should invest in some simple tools and supplies. Not only do they make drink creation easier and better, they make you look ever so professional too! Your friends will be so impressed by your beverage-making talents (even with a drink as simple as this!).
