Never use canned peaches in this drink. They don’t have enough flavour to make it as delicious as fresh or premium-quality frozen peaches. Also never peel peaches. The little flecks of skin add texture and “eye appeal.”
2 cups ice
1 large peach, pitted, quartered, and semifrozen
3 ounces gold rum
2 ounces peach schnapps
Juice of 2 limes
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
