Grilled Peach and Cinnamon Whiskey Sour #SundaySupper

We are smack-dab in the middle of BBQ season and this week on Sunday Supper we're all over it. Below you will find over 40 amazing recipes that'll cover just about anything you need for your next BBQ! Believe me.... we have you covered; beverages, appetizers, sides and accompaniments, main dishes and desserts!

Of course I've got an adult beverage for you all. If little ones are in the mix, by all means, make it a virgin. Just omit the alcohol. Easy peasy.

I see all sorts of amazing recipes that include grilled fruit. The sweet smokey layer that the grill brings out in is wonderful. I think it's about time that we bring that flavor to another level of enjoyment by adding it to our cocktails. Fruit and cocktails go together perfectly...so why not grilled fruit? It's a BBQ natural, in my book.

Looking at the recipes out there, I'm not the only one who has come to this delicious conclusion. I just wish I had realized it sooner.

Grilled Peach and Cinnamon Whiskey Sour
Inspired by Serious Eats
Makes 4 - 6 cocktails

2 peaches, halved and pitted
Neutral flavored oil, such as vegetable oil, to brush on the peaches
Juice from one lemon
4 oz cinnamon whiskey
4 oz brandy
24 oz tamarind (tamarindo) soda (can be found in Mexican or international markets)
Lemon and lime slices to garnish

Brush the cuts sides of your peaches with oil and grill on a medium hot grill until just tender and charred

Let cool before peeling the skin off. (this can be done a day in advance and stored in the fridge.)

It's super easy to get those skins off when the peaches are cooked. Still really messy...but easy. 

Place the peaches in pitcher or bowl with the lemon juice and muddle away. Or you can put it in a blender and give it a quick spin.

Add the cinnamon whisky, brandy and tamarind soda and give it all a good stir. 

Pour into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with the lemon and lime slices, sit back and finish grilling. Or better yet, keep someone else company while they finish grilling. 

If you prefer a cocktail that's not so thick with fruit, by all means, strain out some of the peaches. Either way you're going to enjoy this cocktail. You're instantly hit with the cinnamon then it mellows into the tangy tamarind flavors before the soft sweet peach kisses your palate. It's refreshing and smooth going down. And before you know it, you need a refill. 

Well, this is just the beginning. Take a look at the amazing recipes the Sunday Supper team has put together for you. I guarantee you will be inspired and delighted.
