Stone Fruit Showdown: Peaches, Plums and Apricots in Your Glass

Stone Fruit Showdown: Peaches, Plums and Apricots in Your Glass

Stone fruits are great for pies, but what about in your glass? Let’s shake up your cocktail game with some fresh takes on apricots, peaches, and plums. Ready in minutes, these drinks have the charm to steal the spotlight away from your classic selection of cocktails.

Give these a chance at your next summer bash or quiet evening on the patio and watch them become real conversation starters.

Zesty Apricot Martini Magic

Imagine sipping on something that delivers a sliver of sunshine in a glass. That’s your Apricot Martini. Here’s how we do it: take 45 ml Smirnoff vodka for that punch, swirl in 15 ml apricot liqueur for a hint of sweetness, and throw in some apricot nectar and freshly squeezed lime juice for that tangy kick. Shake it all up, pour it into a chilled glass, and pop an apricot slice on the rim. It’s sharp, sweet, and everything you need to start a summer evening right.

Lazy Peach Bourbon Bliss

Now, for a laid-back twist, let's muddle up some Peach Bourbon Bliss. Grab your 60 ml Singleton of Dufftown 12 Years and 30 ml peach schnapps—because what’s a summer without a bit of peachy fun? Mix these with a splash of orange juice, or drop in a few fresh peach slices if you’re feeling fancy. Serve this up in a highball glass over ice, garnish with a peach slice or an orange twist, and you’ve got yourself a drink that mimics a slow sunset in a glass.

Bubbly Apricot Bellini

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle? The Apricot Bellini is all about elevating your brunch game. Pour 20 ml apricot liqueur and 20 ml apricot nectar into a flute. Top it with chilled Prosecco, and give it a gentle stir. Slide an apricot slice onto the edge of your glass for that final classy touch. Simple, elegant, and bubbly, this drink is everything a good Bellini should be.

Herbaceous Plum Basil Fizz

Fancy something a bit unconventional? Try the Plum Basil Fizz. This one’s a showstopper with its muddled plum and basil leaves, creating a foundation that’s both sweet and aromatic. Pour in 60 ml Tanqueray No TEN, a splash of simple syrup, and top it all off with seltzer. It’s got fizz, it’s got flavour, and it’s got flair—a real triple threat.

Spicy-Sweet Plum Ginger Sour

And if you’re in the mood to spice things up, whip up a Plum Ginger Sour. Start with 60 ml Gordon’s Gin, add an egg white for that silky froth, and mix in fresh lemon juice paired with homemade plum ginger simple syrup for a spicy-sweet sensation. Shake it without ice first (that’s your dry shake), then add ice for a second go-around to chill it down. Strain into a chic coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist or a sliver of ginger. It’s smooth, spicy, and packs just the right punch.
