It is so hot here. As my late mother used “Hotter than blue blazers.” This weekend the kids had their school picnic and my husband and I had signed up to work the beer tent. We have our reasons why we choose that particular tent to work. LOL! Saturday was not too bad. There was a little breeze blowing and the humidity was low. Sunday was a horse of a different color….. another one of my late mother’s sayings. There was no breeze at all. The air was so thick you could have cut it with a knife.
Needless to say the picnic was very slow and beer sales were not good at all. The time went by so slow that I could feel the beads of sweat dripping down the back of my neck. I felt like I was in the Louisiana swamp lands. Do you remember the movie A Time To Kill with Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey? I left the picnic as soon as my volunteer time was up kids in tow. I headed straight home because I wanted to make some ice cold Peach Daiquiris. I knew I had some peaches on the counter and I knew what I wanted to do with them. It was way too hot to drink beer in the tent but it wasn’t too hot to drink daiquiris in the air conditioning!
This is a great drink to make during those hot summer nights when fresh peaches are plentiful.
3 large ripe peaches peeled pitted and cut in half
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon grenadine
4 cups ice
Combine peaches, lime juice and grenadine in a blender. Mix on high until blended. Add ice and mix on high until slushy. Add more ice if you want it thicker.
