This week’s Mix It Up Monday is called The Georgia.
One of my favorite flavors is peach and I really wanted to play around with it and see what I could do. After doing a little thinking and a little mixing, I came up with a cocktail that tasted just like a peach soda, specifically Nehi peach. In case you haven’t heard of Nehi, it was a soda brand created in 1924 that was very popular in the South. Unfortunately, you can’t find Nehi much anymore, but every now and then I run across the peach, which is my favorite!
Georgia is known as the peach state and happens to be the home of where Nehi sodas were founded.
1 1/2 oz of gin
1 oz of mint simple syrup
1 1/2 oz of peach liqueur
Add gin, simple syrup and peach liqueur in a shaker. Shake well and pour into a highball glass. Top with tonic water.
Great for summer days!
