    The Tipsy Parson.

    Nothing like a great new mix between a whiskey sour, Lynchburg Lemonade, or mint julep. I can easily see all the church attendees sipping one of these at brunch on Sunday. Preferably overlooking a gorgeous beach.

    Palomino Palmer – Starts with an Arnold Palmer; the peach liquer and bourbon give it a beautiful palomino color. The alliteration in honor of this literary issue of Coastal Living.

    The ingredients remind one of a breezy day at the beach, sitting in a lounge chair and watching the sunset, the color which is similar to the delicious drink! Spending many summers in Hilton Head Is., peaches are an integral ingredient of summer fun! The bourbon does hurt either!

    Swamp Fox Tea – SC grows delicious peaches which when mixed with bourbon makes this deliciously Southern cocktail. I can imagine Francis Marion and his men sipping this cooler while resting, away from the battles of the Revolutionary War.

    Peach Pucker Iced Tea (Order a Peach Pucker for short!) It has that refreshing sweet vs sour to satisfy both sides of your taste buds against the backdrop of a summer fave….tea!
