Nothing welcomes the warming days of spring better than a fruity smoothie-cocktail combination.
Who’s ready for warm weather? I’m dreaming of it as I write this. Sitting on the porch watching the sun fall behind the trees on a warm Friday afternoon is going to be the best way to indulge in this delicious drink.
I enjoy treating myself to the local flavors of Brunswick County. This area offers some of the freshest peaches during the peak season, and I like to take advantage of them while they are at their most flavorful and juiciest. Peaches are a rich provider of vitamins A, C and E and offer a rich array of minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron. They are also low in calories, contain no saturated fat or cholesterol and are a good source of dietary fiber. I suppose that makes this a healthy cocktail.
This recipe is similar to a Fuzzy Navel, which is basically a Peach Screwdriver, but this one includes frozen peaches and ice blended more into a smoothie. I included Tito’s vodka to kick it up a notch; Tito’s is my favorite liquor and is becoming very popular among vodka drinkers, but any vodka will do.
