Just what this sticky summer day needs...a fruity cocktail straight off the grill. (Grill you say? Oh yeah.) Remember that grilled peach bourbon we made a while back? Well it's time to make some cocktails! Ever since the grilled peaches I've become a liiiitle obsessed with grilling fruits and playing with flavors. Not too girly, a little smoky flavor...this little guy might be my new favorite.
