2 ripe peaches, (about 8 ounces), halved and pitted
1 cup good quality dark rum
1/4 vanilla bean
5 cups cold ginger ale
With a box grater, grate 2 peach halves into a pitcher. Finely dice the remaining peaches, adding to the pitcher, along with the rum and vanilla bean. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours, more than that and the vanilla becomes too potent. Add the ginger ale and serve.
