Mix It Up Monday: The Georgia

img_4736

This week’s Mix It Up Monday is called The Georgia.

Inspiration:

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.
