Ingredients

  • 3

    cups coarsely chopped peeled ripe peaches (about 1 pound)

  • 1

    teaspoon grated lime rind

  • 1

    cup fresh lime juice (about 4 large limes)

  • ¾

    cup sugar

  • ½

    cup packed mint leaves

  • 2

    cups white rum

  • 4

    cups club soda, chilled

  • Crushed ice

  • Mint sprigs (optional)

Directions

Preparation 1. Place peaches in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Press peach puree through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids. 2. Combine rind, lime juice, sugar, and mint in a large pitcher; crush juice mixture with the back of a long spoon. Add peach puree and rum to pitcher, stirring until sugar dissolves. Stir in club soda. Serve over crushed ice. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired. Note: Use a wooden muddler to crush the mint mixture in the pitcher, if available. The procedure releases the mint's essential oils, melding them with the lime juice.
