Sip Away Wednesday: The Peachy Keen!

So you know that spinach we promised you last week?  Well, as with anything in life, Crop Share ingredients are always subject to change.  When the spinach arrived on site, it just wasn't up to our standards, so we substituted in some peaches to help make up for the lack of spinach.  So what do you do when Crop Share takes away your spinach and hands you peaches?  You make drinks!  Ha!  This refreshing, slushie style drink is the perfect way to cool down this week as the temps keep climbing.  Plus, you can hold out the gin and add a few more ounces of the sparkling cider or substitute in 4 oz  of club soda, to make this a drink for the whole family.  If you've yet to try the Sparkling Alternative ciders in our drink cooler, you are missing out.  The Apple and the Apple-Peach are incredible, but the Apple Cinnamon tastes just like apple pie in a bottle!  Made with apples sourced from the Shenandoah Valley, the Sparkling Alternatives are 100 % juice, Kosher and gluten-free.  And did I mention that part about apple pie in a bottle??

So enjoy this Sip Away Wednesday and make it...Peachy Keen!

Peachy Keen


2 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
12 oz Sparkling Alternatives Apple Cider (in store in our drink cooler, use the Sparkling Alternatives Apple-Peach Cider for powerful punch of peach!)
4 oz gin
2 cocktail shakers full of ice (about 20 cubes)

Add peach slices to your blender and blend until smooth.  Add in sparkling cider and gin, and blend for a few seconds to incorporate.  Add in ice and blend until slushie consistency.  Serve immediately to beat this crazy DC area heat!

Makes 2 generous drinks.
