White Peach Cosmopolitan Martini. Continuing with my summer peach theme, I hope you enjoy this fruity martini. Recently, I posted an elegant appetizer of Peach Pistachio Ricotta Toasts. To go with the toasts, I made a martini with white cranberry juice and peach flavored vodka.
For this takeoff of the traditional Cosmopolitan martini, I combined white cranberry juice, peach vodka, Cointreau and a squeeze of lime juice with ice cubes in a martini shaker and shook it up. Then I poured the White Peach Cosmo in to a chilled martini glass and garnished with a fresh peach slice.
Also, I made some non-alcoholic White Peach Cosmopolitan Refresher beverages for those who don’t imbibe. Just put some ice cubes in a tall glass. Fill the glass half-full with white cranberry peach juice. Then add a splash of orange juice and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Fill the glass almost to the top with seltzer water or club soda. Add a slice of fresh peach to garnish. For an extra festive look, add a sprig of mint.
