Roasted Peach and Basil Whiskey Smash

Serves: 4 people

Prep Time:   10 min

Cook Time:  20 min

Ingredients:

  • 3 peaches, cut into thick slices or halved
  • 2 limes, cut into halves
  • 500 ml -750 ml soda water
  • 4 tots of Jack Daniels Whiskey
  • 1 cup Simple Syrup:
    • 2 peaches, cut into slices
    • 4 basil leaves
    • ½ cup sugar
    • 2 cups water
  • Fresh basil leaves to serve

Method:

 After you enjoyed grilling your favourite meat, the egg will be hot enough to grill and char some fruit for cocktails.

  1. Place the peaches and limes on a hot grill, with direct heat. If you’ve just finished a braai, your EGG should be around 200°C which is perfect for caramelising the fruits.
  2. Allow to char on both sides.  Set some fruits aside for garnish.
  3. Place the charred fruit in a cocktail shaker, and add the soda water.  Muddle and strain.
  4. In a cast iron sauce pot heat the ingredients for the simply syrup, and allow to bubble and reduce, for about 8-10min.  Strain and discard the fruit, so that you are left with a sticky sweet syrup.
  5. Fill each glass with ice and pour a tot of Jack Daniels whiskey in each glass.
  6. Top with muddled soda water, and a tablespoon of simple syrup.
  7. Garnish with leftover charred fruit.
  8. Serve immediately.
