Lana here, welcoming you back to the Aldergrills blog for another adventure in culinary delights.

If your week has been as wild as mine—with a mix of Christmas chaos, unexpected weather twists, and power outages—then I’ve got just the remedy to turn things around: Smoked Peach and Whiskey Sours. These delightful cocktails are not only a breeze to make but are also sure to bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart as we welcome the New Year.

Picture this: a perfect blend of smoky elegance and fruity sweetness, creating a symphony of flavors in every sip.

Our secret weapon? A homemade Smoked Peach Syrup that infuses the cocktail with a subtle yet distinctive smokiness, elevating the experience to new heights. The peaches, kissed by the Ironbark smoke in our offset smoker, bring a unique depth that plays perfectly against the zesty kick of Mr. Consistent Sours.

Now, let’s talk about the star of the show—the whiskey. A good-quality whiskey adds a rich, complex character to the mix, enhancing the overall flavor profile of our Smoked Peach and Whiskey Sours. Imagine the smooth warmth, the hint of oak, and the gentle burn that lingers just long enough to make each sip a memorable one. It’s the kind of whiskey that turns a cocktail into a conversation starter, an experience to savor.

And here’s the best part: simplicity. From the first slice of peach to the final clink of glasses, this recipe is a celebration of straightforwardness. We’ll guide you through each step, from the offset smoker to your glass, ensuring that the process is as enjoyable as the end result.

So, apron on, knives ready, let’s step outside and embark on this flavor-filled journey together.

Join me in creating the perfect antidote to life’s craziness—the Smoked Peach and Whiskey Sours. Here’s to good times, great company, and even better cocktails!
