COCKTAIL: Peach Margarita (Peacharita)

Peaches in season, from a good grower, are one of those special annual treats. Georgia and California peaches should be in your market now, so plan your strategy: hand fruit, fresh peach salsa, peach pie, peach ice cream…and a Peach Margarita.

In the U.S., the peach harvest typically begins in early May from Georgia to California. The fruit ripens later in northern states, like Idaho and Michigan—often in early August when the peaches from the warmer climates are ending their run.

This recipe, courtesy of Sauza Tequila, can be made year round, but it’s nice to have a tasty, fresh peach wedge garnish.
