Friday Cocktail: Grilled Peach Frappe

This is a spin on a recipe included in Waring's 1947 Pick Ups and Cheer Ups from the Waring Blendor (yes, they spelled blender with an o). Not to upset you, but in a misguided attempt to trick children into eating meat, Waring had a liquid Liver Milkshake included among his recipes.


  • 1 large peach
  • 3 ounces (90 mL) Southern Comfort
  • 1/2 ounce (15 mL) fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce (15 mL) fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons raw sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (237 mL) cracked ice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the peach in half, remove the pit, and place the peach halves ungreased on a hot grill. Grill until deep checkerboard has marks appear for the best flavor.
  3. Remove the peach halves from the grill and place them on a baking sheet in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until a knife easily pierces the skin.
  4. Allow to cool and remove the skin with peeler.
  5. Combine the peach and the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend on high for approximately 10-20 seconds, or until smooth.
  6. Serve immediately in chilled glasses garnished with slices of fresh peach.
