Market-Fresh Mixology Puts Seasonality Behind the Bar

Market Fresh MixologyBridget Albert and Mary Barranco's Market-Fresh Mixology: Cocktails for Every Season, published by Agate's Surrey Books imprint, was revised and expanded earlier this summer. The Albert and Barranco show you how to use fresh, seasonal ingredients from your garden, the farmers market or produce department to make delicious cocktails year-round.

Summer, of course, offers the broadest options for cocktail ingredients -- fresh fruit, tomatoes, herbs. Unfortunately, the weather's been as suitable for hot drinks as cool cocktails, but this week we might actually see some 90-degree weather. Here's one of the new recipes book to help you beat the heat.

Peach Julep
Ingredients:
10-15 mint leaves
1oz. brown sugar simple syrup
3 fresh peach slices
2oz. Kentucky bourbon
Crushed ice
mint sprig

In a rocks glass, add mint, brown sugar simple syrup and peach slices. Muddle until well combined. Add whiskey and then crushed ice. Stir. Garnish with mint sprig.
