Bourbon Peach Buttermilk Popsicles
Steel City is a Popsicle company that is/as been sweeping the south. They started out in Alabama and they are to popsicles what Sprinkles is to cupcakes. (Crazy flavors and combinations) My wife’s school had them come out and give their staff popsicles. She had buttermilk and loved it.

So I wanted to try this and thought about the bourbon peach jam I made for one of my sandwiches and thought it would be great in this Popsicle.

I ordered my Popsicle molds from Amazon. I must say I did struggle with getting them out of the Popsicle molds but made a second batch and let them stay in the freezer for two days before eating. Warm water on the outside of the mold and they pulled out beautifully.

Bourbon peach jam
2 peaches, skinned and cubed
1 tbs of sugar
2 tbs of Bourbon
Pinch of Kosher Salt

2 cups of buttermilk
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups of simple sugar (2 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar)
1 vanilla bean, scraped

1. Medium heated pot, add your peaches and sugar and heat until softened. Add the bourbon and light it to burn it off. Never pour liquor to the pot while on the burner. With a potato masher break up the mixture until somewhat smooth. If you want it chunky don’t mash it as much.

2. Make your simple syrup by adding equal parts 2 cups water and 2 cups sugar and heat, stir until sugar is dissolved. I added my vanilla into this mixture by splitting the vanilla bean with a knife and with the dull side of a knife scrap the inside and add to the mixture. I also added the whole bean until the syrup cooled.

3. Let both your peach jam and simple syrup cool to room temperature.

4. Once cooled add everything into a bowl with a spout. Stir and pour into molds. Freeze overnight to make sure it’s fully frozen. Place molds into warm water and pull, and enjoy. You can also pull them out and place into individual plastic bags if you needed to eat them over time. (ie not a party).

Summer Porch Cocktail

Summer Porch Cocktail

For dinner we were making a sandwich that had whiskey peach jam so I decided to make a cocktail incorporating peaches. It’s summer on a porch that isn’t so friggin hot….peachy, herbal, fizzy.


Two cocktails:
6 oz of Gin
1 peach (pitted and sliced)
2 limes
2 sprigs of rosemary
Simple syrup or sugar (to taste)

Juice the limes and add to glass with peach slices and rosemary. Muddle and then add your Gin and simple syrup. Give it a good shake until combined and top with seltzer and ice.
