About this Cocktail

I started playing with the idea of a peach cocktail while the Georgia peaches are in season this year. This season's peaches are some of the best I've ever had. Amaro Montenegro seemed like a good modifier because of the citrus forward qualities. I started out with Armagnac as the base spirit but I found tequila worked well with the stone fruit. The cocktail tends to change a little from peach to peach. Some are more ripe than others, some have more water content, etc... But I haven't made one that was so different that I didn't like the result. The name comes from an old friend's favorite Kung Fu move. I always thought the name was funny considering that when properly executed, you wind up rolling on the ground and finishing your opponent with an iron grip on his "peaches."

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 oz El Jimador Reposado
  • 3/4 oz Amaro Montenegro
  • 3/4 oz fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz heavy Demerara syrup
  • 1/4 oz cinnamon syrup
  • 2 dashes Fee's Old Fashioned Bitters
  • 1 wedge of a ripe peach
Preparation:

Muddle the peach in the bottom of a shaker tin. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake with ice. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail coupe. Finish the drink by expressing the oils of an orange peel over the cocktail.
