“YOU ARE ICE AND FIRE; THE TOUCH OF YOU BURNS MY HANDS LIKE SNOW.” Amy Lowell
This icy treat has a fire all it’s own! Chilly to my tongue, but definitely warms my heart! It is hard to believe that something so ridiculously easy can taste so amazingly good! Refreshing? Yes! A great combination of flavors, but the rum most definitely shines through!
Check out how crazy easy this is!
- 4 cups of water
- 3 large peaches, peeled and sliced
- 1 1/3 cups of granulated sugar
- 6 mint leaves
- 1 1/3 cups of fresh lime juice (about 9 limes)
- 3/4 cup of rum
- peach slices and mint sprigs for garnish
Combine water, peaches, sugar and mint leaves in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Cool and discard the mint.
Place half of the peach mix in a blender. Puree until smooth. Pour pureed peach mixture into a 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish. Combine the remaining peach mixture, lime juice and rum in the blender. Puree until smooth. Add to the baking dish. Stir to combine.
Freeze 8 hours or until firm. Remove from the freezer, scrape with a fork until fluffy. Spoon into serving dishes or glasses and garnish with peaches and mint. Serve immediately. Makes approximately 8 servings. Unless you are like me and LOVE it so much….then it serves only one!
