Getting Peachy at the Goat

We love our search for fantastic local cocktails made with our favorite rum made here in Modesto by our friends at Do Good Distillery. Their rum is out of this world and it should be part of your cocktail experience and in your own liquor cabinet. This month, we found our friends at Ralston’s Goat mixing up something really peachy. Yes, August is the perfect time for local fresh peaches, especially those from Rodin Ranch.

Master mixologist Sean Kohen has been working on a great Peach Puree and we go from there. Sean really likes to take the fresh flavors and really blend them to make a drink that tastes super fresh, isn’t too sweet and allows the Do Good 3 Mile Rum to shine. At the Goat, there are many great appetizers and snacks to go along with your drinks. So here is what we got.

The “Do Good and Peachy” Mojito :
You need a pint glass
Farm fresh peaches from Rodin Ranch, then make peach purée
Muddle with mint
Splash of balsamic
Do Good 3 Mille Rum to liking (we like a lot)
Soda water
Ice, shake and stir
Garnish with mint and peach slice
Repeat over and over and over….
