Take a break from the margaritas and rosé

You do not have to serve the same old margarita at every summer party. Don’t us wrong, we love margaritas, but when you have gorgeous peak-season fruits available, why not work them into your cocktails? This peach Moscow mule recipe is a simple summer spin on a classic favorite. Yes, you’ll be blending peaches, but the finished product is light and refreshing – no sticky, dated Bellini vibes here. Try blending in 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves with the peaches for another layer of flavor.

Moscow mules traditionally call for vodka – after all, the catchy name was intended to nudge Americans to drink more of the stuff way back in the 1940s – but this version would also taste great made with bourbon. Just remember, if you switch the spirit, technically this would become a yellow peach buck, rather than a Moscow mule.
