|Bourbon Peach Lemonade|
If this does not taste like summer in a glass, I do not know what does.
Just finished up a job at beautiful, exhausting, thrilling, draining Wolf Trap Opera. One night, my costume designer and I went in search of a good meal. Large format chains are thick on the ground in Tyson's Corner (where we are housed), but a good local restaurant is much harder to find. We ended up a regional chain called Coastal Flats, and I discovered this drink (also a Kale Caesar that was to die for... also it is fun to say "Kale Caesar!" and do a Roman salute).
Anyway, I've been noodling around, trying to work out the secret. Turns out... there isn't much a of secret. When you are dealing with bourbon, peaches, and lemonade, it is hard to make a bad drink. hahha.
