Peach Milk Fizz
by Joseph Ambrose
And thank you to all of the finalists who participated in the 4th Annual Can-Can Classic Cocktail Competition (2011):
St-Germain and Edible Communities
This year St-Germain partnered with Edible Communities, the award-winning magazine group that celebrates quality, artisanal products, local foods, and seasonality to provide a new twist on their annual competition. Both St-Germain and Edible Communities support working with fresh ingredients and for this contest they challenged bartenders to develop an original cocktail recipe featuring St-Germain and seasonal ingredients from their local region. All ingredients used in Ambrose’s Peach Milk Fizz are locally grown in the Washington, D.C. area.
"I wanted to put a different spin on ‘Peaches-n-Cream’ and peaches with bourbon is a no-brainer," said Ambrose. "St-Germain helps tie the ingredients together well because I can use it with just about any spirit and citrus base."
The editorial staff at Edible and St-Germain founder Robert Cooper selected Ambrose’s cocktail based on the criteria of flavor profile, balance, resourcefulness, and creativity incorporating seasonal, local ingredients.
