Tajin Peach Lemonade

I’ve been experimenting with a new vodka-based cocktail recipe that I think you’ll absolutely love—it’s called Tajin Peach Lemonade. This isn’t your average drink; it offers a delicious twist on traditional flavors, perfectly balancing sweet, tangy, and a hint of spice.

Let me walk you through what makes this cocktail a must-try for your next gathering or a relaxing evening at home.

First and foremost, the preparation sets the stage for this vibrant concoction. Begin by rimming a highball glass with lemon and Tajín. This not only gives the glass an eye-catching appearance but also introduces a zesty and slightly spicy kick from the first sip. The citrusy tang of lemon combined with the chili-lime depth of Tajín acts as a pleasant teaser for what’s to come.

At the heart of this cocktail, the mixture is blended with ice in a blender. Starting with frozen peaches, these form the backbone of the cocktail, providing a frosty, smooth base that bursts with sweet, juicy flavors. The natural sweetness and slight acidity of peaches create a refreshing foundation that’s hard to match. To amplify the peach flavor, a generous splash of peach vodka is essential. It enhances the fruit’s natural flavors without overwhelming them, adding a subtle alcoholic warmth that permeates each sip.

The addition of lemon thyme simple syrup takes this drink in a unique and intriguing direction! This syrup provides a sweet yet herbaceous connection that bridges the gap between the sweet peaches and the tangy lemon. Thyme introduces a light, almost earthy undertone that complements the freshness of the other ingredients.

Once these three ingredients are blended with ice, grab your prepared highball glass and pour the cocktail mixture in. However, we’re not done yet. Bitters are a common ingredient in many of our favorite cocktails, and I often use them in my recipes. Fire bitters, which I hadn’t used much before, were an exciting addition to this cocktail. Just a dash adds a complex layer of smokiness and a subtle heat, which really stands out against the sweet and tangy backdrop.

To finish, a generous pour of sparkling lemonade introduces a fizzy, refreshing element that elevates all the other flavors, making the drink lively and invigorating.

This fruity, refreshing concoction is the ideal boozy slushy to enjoy after a long day, especially once the sun starts peaking out again. It’s a perfect blend of flavors that offers something new with each sip— great for savoring slowly and appreciating the craft that goes into a well-made cocktail.

Cheers to a new favorite!
