Each year, the Local Palate celebrates the South’s favorite spirit at the annual Whiskey After Dark. For 2022’s event, the publication partnered with Breakthru Beverage to bring the ambassador’s of world-class whiskey brands to Charleston. In addition to sampling pours of premium whiskey, three signature cocktail were designed for the event. The Peach Please is reminiscent of a refreshing iced tea, but with a little extra something special (hint: it’s whiskey). You’ll top the cocktail with Mountain Valley Sparkling Water White Peach for added effervescence and subtle peachy sweetness.
1½ ounces whiskey
1 ounce brewed tea (room temperature or cold)
½ ounce lemon juice
½ ounce simple syrup
2 ounces Mountain Valley Spring Water White Peach
Garnish: lemon wedge
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine whiskey, tea, lemon juice, and simple syrup and shake well. Strain into a highball glass, add ice, and top with Mountain Valley Spring Water White Peach. Use a bar spoon or straw to give everything a quick stir and garnish with lemon wedge before serving.
