This refreshing cocktail is great for your sunny cookout needs and a perfect way to help dad cool down on Father’s Day. It’s a tasty blend of sweetened peaches and fresh squeezed lime juice, which melds perfectly with the mellow notes of bourbon. This drink only requires 10 minutes of hands-on time, and 30 minutes overall to make.
