Peach Old Fashioned with Four Roses Bourbon #sponsored

Disclaimer: I received a promotional product in order to create this recipe. All opinions are my own.

Guys, have I told you about my bourbon obsession? Ever since stepping foot in the South, I've had a hankering for bourbon that just cannot be quelled. Strange, considering my past liking of girly, fruity drinks.


Four Roses is one of my new favorites--and it's not just because I got a complimentary bottle to make a recipe with!--and it hits all the notes of what's great about bourbon, with some fruit flavors as well. It's smooth, mellow, and perfect to sip.

Turns out, there's a perfect drink that marries my love of bourbon with my taste for fruit: an old fashioned! It's becoming my new favorite drink to order when I'm out, and I feel like I've perfected the at-home version as well. I added a bit more southern flair by adding peaches and a splash of Texas Honey lemonade. Enjoy on the porch while you watch the sunset!


Texas Peach Old Fashioned
  • 1 oz Four Roses Bourbon
  • 1 oz Texas Honey lemonade (basic lemonade recipe with honey swapped for sugar)
  • 1 or 2 splashes Grapefruit bitters
  • 1 cherry
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 1 slice ripe peach, no peel

-In a cocktail glass, muddle together the cherry, orange zest, and peach together. Shake in the bitters.

-Fill glass with ice, and pour bourbon and lemonade over.

-Sip slowly, and enjoy.

  2. Burbon (or any whiskey) is a bit more than I can handle (read: pansy) but the addition of the peach with the other ingredients make this downright desirable for my non-whiskey ways.
