Why you’ll love it

Frozen co*cktail – Frozen co*cktails are so refreshing on a hot summer day. They’re perfect for sipping on the patio, in the pool, or wherever you’re enjoying a lazy summer day.

Sweet, but not too sweet – I’m not a big fan of overly sweet co*cktails, which is why I love this bourbon co*cktail so much. It’s sweet from the peaches and ginger beer and from there you can leave it as is or add additional sugar for sweetness.

Summer co*cktail – Peaches always remind me of summer and what better way to use them than in a refreshing co*cktail. I always stock up on fresh peaches before the season ends and freeze them following the steps below. This way I can have one of these slushes anytime I’m in the mood!

The ingredients

  • Peaches – Use the ripest, sweetest peaches for the best flavor.
  • Ginger beer – Ginger beer is sweet, carbonated, and non-alcoholic. I like to use the Fever Tree brand when I make these.
  • Bourbon – Bourbon or whiskey can be used for this co*cktail. Use a brand that you like to drink.
  • Sugar – If you like a sweeter co*cktail you may want to add a tablespoon or so of granulated sugar.

Best Way to Freeze Peaches

  1. Cut a small, shallow ‘x’ in the skin of the peach. Blanch the peaches in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Immediately place them in ice water.
  2. Peel the skin off of the peaches, remove the pits and slice them.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the slices in a single layer on it.
  4. Place the baking sheet in the freezer and flash freeze them for a couple hours.
  5. Store the peaches in an airtight sealed freezer bag.

How to make a bourbon peach slush

Making the Bourbon Peach Slush is not only simple, but you only need five ingredients to whip up this delicious frozen co*cktail.

To make this boozy slushy add the frozen peaches, bourbon, ginger beer, lime juice, and sugar into a regular or high speed bender. Blend everything together until it’s smooth and then pour it into glasses. Feeling fancy? Garnish with a fresh peach slice.

Bourbon peach slush FAQ

Can I use ginger ale instead of ginger beer?

Yes. The ginger flavor won’t be as strong, but it can definitely be used as a replacement.

How can I make this a mocktail?

To turn this co*cktail into a mocktail, simply omit the bourbon and replace it with additional ginger beer.

Does ginger beer have alcohol in it?

Despite the name, ginger beer does not have alcohol in it.

What type of bourbon is best for this frozen co*cktail?

Use a bourbon that you enjoy drinking. A few of my favorites are Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey, Old Foster, Laws, and Four Roses.

    Do I peel the peaches first??

    • Bourbon Peach Slush - Recipe Runner (20)Danae says

      Hi April. Peeling the peaches is up to you. I didn’t bother with it because they basically disappeared when everything was blended together, I’m also a little lazy when it comes to that. ;-)

    These look amazing Danae! Beautiful work. I feel like every state loves their own peaches. I’ve heard people talk recently about Utah peaches, California peaches, colorado peaches. Hopefully someday I will try them all :)
