  • 2 cups skinned, diced peaches (2-3 medium peaches)
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup honey

  • 2 ½ cups club soda
  • 4 cups crushed ice

Instructions:

  1. Place peaches, raspberries, lemon juice, honey, ginger and ½ cup club soda in blender. Blend until thoroughly mixed.
  2. For each one cup serving, place ¼ cup of peach-raspberry mix, ½ cup crushed ice, and ¼ cup club soda into a cocktail shaker.* Shake until well blended.
  3. Garnish with raspberries.

Yield: 8 – one cup servings

*Note: If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, a covered coffee mug that can be completely sealed will also work well.
