Spicy Grilled Peach Margarita

Spicy Grilled Peach margarita

It’s peach season y’all!

It didn’t take much brain power to know how I wanted to use these plump, sweet peaches I found at my local market. We love grilled anything, so why not peaches!  And why not in a drink?

And why not in a drink?

The grilling imparts a smoky flavor that is unmatched. It is meaty and satisfying and sweet all at the same time. Plus, I added a grilled jalapeno from my garden and that adds a bit of heat. It’s like all the things you could ever want in a drink…

I dressed them up a bit with a grilled peach wedge to munch on while you enjoy this sweet poolside libation.  

The grilling literally takes a hot minute (pun intended) and quickly gets whirled in the blender with a few other simple ingredients and voila…

 

A beautifully refreshing summer drink to share with your guests!

I used three whole peaches, split them in half and removed the pit.

I cut one of the halves into wedges and grilled them all on a super hot grill until they were sufficiently charred.

I used another lemon to moisten the rim of the glass and dipped into my margarita salt.

 

Add a few ice cubes to the glass and pour the peach goodness in.

Add the grilled peach wedge to a skewer and pop in the drink. I also added a sliced jalapeno for color and fun.
