Enjoy this sparkling cooler all summer long. Use the back of a wooden spoon to muddle the mint.

Ingredients

  • 2 large peaches (about 1 lb.), unpeeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed fresh mint leaves
  • 4 cups club soda, chilled
  • 2 cups white rum
  • Garnishes: fresh mint sprigs, peach wedges

How to Make It

  1. Process first 3 ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. (Yield should be about 2 cups.)

  2. Muddle mint leaves against bottom and sides of a glass pitcher to release flavors. (Leaves will be bruised and torn.) Add club soda, rum, and peach mixture; stir to combine. Serve immediately over ice.
