Blended Peach Whiskey Sour
By Kathy Casey
This blended version of a classic whiskey sour is a perfect way to celebrate wonderful ripe peaches during the summer. The addition of apricot preserves helps bump up the flavor of this cocktail – especially if using frozen peaches. Try making it with fresh nectarines or apricots if in season.

4 oz bourbon
1 lemon, skin cut off, quartered
1 cup peaches (you can also substitute frozen, defrosted peaches if fresh are not available)
