Delicious way to relax and refresh after a long, hot summer day. Smooth margarita made with fresh peach puree.
So apparently I have a problem.
I was talking to my mom the other day and she asked me what I was up to. I told her that I just came back from the farmer’s market and I got a basket of big, delicious white peaches. I told her that I was in a middle of making some peach puree for a margarita. She laughed at me!
She said that every time I find nice produce at the store or market, I always have to make something with it. Come to think of it, I don’t know when was a last time I ate just as strawberry, or an apple, or… a peach.
She laughed even more when I told her that I planned to make peach waffles, peach sangria and muffins with the rest of the peaches. It might be funny but I it is like a sickness, I look at all the possible recipes that can be made with the fruit before I even think of just eating it.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I make my little guy eat as much fresh fruit as possible. I usually just get extra when I find really good fruit or berries so I have some to bake with and some for him to eat. But I can’t deny that my mind goes first to baking/cooking possibilities.
- Peach Puree:
- 2 ripe, large white peaches, peeled
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar

- Pulse mixture in a blender until smooth. Cool completely.
- Combine margarita mix, tequila, peach schnapps and peach puree in a blender. Pulse a couple of times to blend.
- Rub rims of glasses with a peach and dip each grass rim in salt.
