peach cocktail with a raspberry popsicle garnish

Gimme the Peach!

Picture of Heather Wibbels, Cocktail Contessa, pouring a cocktailHeather Wibbels
Summer’s in full swing, and we could all use a little easy decadence. I put together the most summer-worthy tastes all into one cocktail that’s a sweet, tart, smoky, luscious cocktail topped with a raspberry popsicle. Multiply the ingredients by 4 for a larger batch, but make sure you get a box of popsicles to go with your cocktails if you do. They’re like candy after they’re infused with the peach and smoke of the cocktail. See notes for short cuts.

Cuisine Bourbon Cocktail
Servings 1


  • 2 ounces peach-infused bourbon see notes
  • 2 ounces peach-watermelon puree**
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 3 dashes peach bitters
  • ¼ to ½ ounce lightly smoked mezcal optional, but highly recommended
  • Garnish: raspberry popsicle and mint sprig


  • Combine bourbon, peach-watermelon puree, lemon juice, simple, bitters and mezcal in a shaking tin. Add ice and shake until it’s so cold it hurts. Double strain into a large rocks glass filled with ice. Top with a raspberry popsicle and a mint sprig.


You can skip infusing the bourbon with peach, it just adds more peach flavor to the cocktail. If you want to infuse, fill a quart jar with 2 cups of peeled, sliced peaches, then top it with bourbon that went ½ inch over the top of the peaches. I let it infuse for two weeks, then strained it and placed it in the fridge.
** Peach-Watermelon Puree: combine 1 cup of fresh, sliced, peeled peaches with 1 cup of watermelon and blend on high. Add ½ ounce of lemon juice to it to help it keep its color. It will slowly turn brown like anything with fresh peaches, so use within a day or two.
