It's Peach (Daiquiri) Season

Planning a little get-together for the 3-day weekend? We have the perfect drink! Celebrate peach season with a delicious peach daiquiri using organic peaches from Watsonia Farms (because they are the first to have them!). Get them at your local farmers market and use this recipe courtesy of Rebecca Lang's  book “Quick-Fix Southern,”  You'll probably want to get enough for two batches!

“Quick-Fix Southern” Peach Daiquiris
Serves 4 to 6
6 medium peaches or 3 cups frozen peaches, thawed
1/2 cup peach nectar
4 1/2 cups ice
1/2 to 3/4 cup rum

Peel and coarsely chop the peaches and place them in a blender. Add about two tablespoons of nectar. Blend until the peaches are completely puréed.
Add the ice and blend until all of it is crushed. Add the remaining six tablespoons of nectar and the rum and blend to mix. Serve in large wine glasses.
