Destination: Cocktail -- Peach Tree Punch from Trader Vic's
With the Golden Globes airing live from the Beverly Hilton on Sunday, why not get a tiny taste of the good life by imbibing a creamy cocktail that is served at Trader Vic's Lounge in the very same hotel? You can sip this peachy concoction and pretend you're there.
Peach Tree Punch
1/2 peach (fresh or canned), plus 1/4 peach for garnish
1 ounce coconut cream liqueur
4 ounces orange juice
1 1/2 ounces light rum
1/4 ounce peach brandy
Mint sprig for garnish
Freshly grated nutmeg for garnish
In a blender, thoroughly blend the peach half, coconut cream liqueur, orange juice, rum and peach brandy. Pour on top of five ice cubes in a large-bowled glass. Garnish with 1/4 of a peach on a stick and a mint sprig. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
