Sean Snelling's Whiskey Peach

​Yesterday we met Sean Snelling, the Aussie who tends and manages the bar at Primebar in the Scottsdale Quarter. Today he shares the recipe for the Whiskey Peach.

"We have 16 cocktails on our menu, and most are made with rum or vodka," Snelling says. "This one's made with bourbon with a high rye content, which adds a nice spice note. It's not our biggest seller, but it's my favorite."

The sweet, fruity peach and spicy rye blend together so well it makes you wonder why no one else had thought of it.

 

The ingredients:
1 ¾ oz. Bulleit bourbon (or other rye whiskey)
1 oz. Monin peach puree
½ oz. peach liqueur
¼ oz. simple syrup
Squeeze fresh lime
Orange wheel

How to make it:
Pour all the liquids into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a rocks-filled lowball glass. Top with orange wheel. Marvel at the sweet harmony of peach and bourbon.
