6 slices fresh or thawed frozen peach (save 1 for garnish)
1½ oz (45 ml) Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye (for a slightly more assertive spice character, try using Lot No. 40 Rye Whisky Single Copper Pot Still)
½ oz (15 ml) orgeat syrup (made from almonds, this syrup is available online or at specialty grocery stores)
¾ oz (22 ml) fresh lemon juice
fresh thyme or lemon verbena, for garnish
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle peach slices. Add whisky, orgeat, lemon juice and ice cubes. Shake vigorously and fine strain into a rocks glass over crushed ice. Garnish with thyme or lemon verbena and a slice of peach.
