Drink up, Y’all: The Julia Sugarbaker

Iron the linen napkins, get out the crystal, then check the local ordinances pertaining to public nudity. This sweet southern belle is hiding some serious whoopass beneath her peachy exterior.

The Julia Sugarbaker

You will need:

1/2 ripe, gorgeous summer peach

4-5 sage leaves, stems removed

1/2 t. brown sugar

A squirt of fresh lemon juice, about a teaspoon

2 ounces bourbon or whiskey

Ginger ale, just a splash

Slice the peach into manageable pieces, then drop into the bottom of a cocktail shaker with the sage, brown sugar and lemon juice. Muddle this mixture or smash it up with a spoon until you have a nice fruity, herbal puree. Add ice and whiskey. Shake until your arm starts to ache. Strain into a lovely glass, add a float of ginger ale on top. Serves one, on a porch swing, under a ceiling fan.
