Sweet as a Peach Cocktail

Another whiskey cocktail?! Absolutely! This Sweet as a Peach cocktail featuring Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey and Izze Peach Soda is light and sweet and was good enough that we served it as a specialty cocktail at our wedding. This recipe, originally found here, was the perfect slightly sweet, goes down way too smooth, cocktail for our special day! Just ask Brittany who celebrated with us!

Stayed tuned for a vodka cocktail next week. Dave had it on our honeymoon and I had to recreate it when we returned.

Well, the snow melted now, but I’ve got a feeling it will hit again…in true Chicago winter fashion. Layers and color are what help make the winter months go by a littler faster. You can see how I styled these bright blue pants last winter here and here. And, I last worse this jacket here. Hope that gives you a little outfit inspiration to get through these chilly months.

TGIF! Who’s ready for a cocktail after this week? For our wedding, our venue was BYOB, so we were able to fully customize our bar. We decided to have a full bar with two signature cocktails. So, in the process of picking two signature drinks that fit us, we taste tested quite a few. This recipe, found here on Dessert for Two (modified a little bit), was not one we served, but was tasty enough to share here.

I like no fuss cocktails. Ones that don’t have ten different ingredients and that I can easily make with what I have in the fridge or pantry on a random night. So, with fig jam, one lime, and cinnamon, this was simple. I didn’t add the additional sugar that the original recipe called for (the jam sweetened it up plenty and I try to cut too much added sugar out), and I surely don’t keep lemon balm on hand, so those were left out. This cocktail was refreshing for a whiskey drink, which can be heavy and a bit overpowering. It has a nice sweet and spicy warmth to it. One thing to note, the jam will separate out if the drink sits and the texture isn’t as smooth as because of the jam. But, that didn’t stop us from enjoying these!
