Ingredients

1/4 cup granulated sugar

Two 1-inch knobs fresh ginger, peeled and smashed

12 mint leaves, plus more for garnish

1/2 medium ripe peach

1/2 lime, cut into quarters, plus slices for garnish

4 ounces bourbon

Ice

Ginger beer, for serving

Directions

  1. Bring the sugar, 1/2 cup water and ginger to a simmer in a small saucepan. Tear and add in 4 of the mint leaves. Once the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes, turn of the heat. Strain and set aside to cool.
  2. Slice the peach into slices, reserving 2 for garnish. Add the peaches, the remaining mint, and the lime quarters to a cocktail shaker. Mash with a muddler until broken up and juicy. Add the bourbon and muddle again. Add 2 ounces of the simple syrup, fill the shaker with ice and shake.
  3. Strain into 2 cups filled with ice. Top off with ginger beer, garnish each with a peach slice, a lime slice and a sprig of mint.
