“Nothing says summer to me like firing up the grill and hanging out with friends and family,” says Sprewell of this drink, which features juicy grilled peach. “This simple, refreshing cocktail is perfect for grilling and chilling out on a hot summer day.”
Brush the peach half lightly with olive oil. Using an outdoor grill or grill pan, grill each side over medium heat for 4–5 minutes. Let cool.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle grilled peach. Add remaining ingredients and ice. Shake well, and double strain into a rocks glass over crushed ice.
Top with a splash of ginger beer and garnish with mint.
