Made with muddled peaches and local honey, this old-fashioned makes the perfect nightcap for the summer months.

There are few things that would make a Southern woman happier than a bushel of fuzzy, farmers-market-fresh peaches.
I love peaches plain, with ice cream, baked into cobbler… and in cocktails, of course!
It’s the nectar of the gods.
This is what I want to be drinking for the rest of the summer.
Scratch that — it’s what I will be drinking for the rest of the summer. Hope you enjoy it too! // susannah
