Whisky Peaches

Wednesday, July 3, 2019
Whisky Peaches makes not only a delicious garnish for cocktails but also the most delicious peach infused whisky from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I made these Whisky Peaches for Fathers Day for Colt at his request.

The Whisky Soaked Peaches make a great garnish for summer cocktails like Peach Whisky Iced Tea and the Peach Whisky that forms in the jars makes the most delicious summer cocktails. 

Using ripe sweet peaches that are still firm are the secret to the peaches holding their shape during the soak in the whisky.

The peaches will brown slightly the longer they soak in the whisky. I recommend soaking them for at least 48 hours before enjoying the peaches and store well for a few weeks in the fridge. Just make sure the peaches are always covered in the whisky to prevent them from going bad.

We also made Whisky Soaked Cherries when we made the peaches. You'll have to tell me which is your favorite.

Asian Cucumber Salad

Looking to change up your side dish at your next summer barbecue? Asian Cucumber Salad is always a hit!  Spicy slightly sweet in a toasted sesame seed oil dressing with just a hint of honey to balance out the vinaigrette. 

It's a year around favorite, but the best when cucumber are farm fresh at the peek of summer. It's a summertime must make and is one of those salads that is best made a few hours ahead.

Asian Cucumber Salad is one of those staple salads we make a lot. It's great as a side dish with grilled steak or chicken.


With the weather starting to heat up outside the simpler the side dishes the better. Asian Cucumber Salad is a staple in our house for just that reason it's simple and delicious! 

You can adjust the red pepper flakes to make it less or more spicy to your liking. 

Raspberry Margaritas

Raspberry Margaritas are a favorite pitcher cocktail perfect for parties from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

We made a pitcher of these Raspberry Margaritas way back at Cinco De Mayo, but I think they would be a hit for 4th of July!  

They are an absolute favorite for summertime barbecues, parties or just to enjoy on the back patio to kick off the weekend.

I mean who doesn't love an easy Pitcher Margarita recipe? They are absolutely delicious! 

The best part of these Raspberry Margaritas is they can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Just add ice to the glasses instead of the pitcher when serving.

It's definitely a favorite pitcher cocktail recipe for summer entertaining along with Peach Whiskey Iced Tea, Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea, Spiked Blackberry Lemonade, and Slushy Mango Margaritas
