About this Cocktail

An original cocktail from stirandstrain.com

Makes 2 drinks!

Ingredients:
  • 1 nectarine, halved
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wheels
  • 4 cherries
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 4 springs lemon thyme (or regular thyme with a pinch of fresh lemon zest)
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 3 ounces aged cachaça, such as Novo Fogo Barrel-Aged
Preparation:

Skewer halved nectarines, lime wheels, and cherries on three skewers (with one variety of fruit per skewer) and place on a hot, oiled grill. Cook until fruit begins to bubble and char lines are visible on all sides, rotating as necessary, about 4 minutes for cherries and 8 to 10 minutes total for nectarines and limes. Remove from grill and let cool for 10 minutes. Cut nectarines into quarters.

For each drink, muddle 2 cherries, 2 lime wheels, 2 nectarine quarters, one sprig thyme, and 1/4 ounce simple syrup in the bottom of a rocks glass until nectarine is broken up. Remove lime wheels from glass. Pack 1/2 cup crushed ice. Add 1 1/2 ounces cachaça and stir gently. Pack 1/2 cup more crushed ice into glass and garnish with second thyme sprig. Repeat for second drink. Serve immediately.
