Just peachy cocktail in Telluride

Cheers on this Thirsty Thursday!  I’m sharing a recipe my cousin Andrew created for the Chop House Restaurant at the New Sheridan when he worked there in Telluride, Colorado.

It’s a Peach Martini.  It’s light, refreshing, and well…..peachy!  The recipe is easy and perfect for poolside or enjoying a beautiful summer afternoon, like I did in Telluride.

Peach Martini

2.0 oz. Tito’s Vodka

.5 oz. Cointreau

5. oz. Fresh lime

2.0 oz Peach puree

3 mint leaves

Shake ingredients with ice then strain into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with cracked pepper and a mint leaf.
