The Best Peach Margaritas

I LOVE when stone fruit season starts in the middle of summer. Peaches, cherries, nectarines… these are some of my favorite fruits to eat cold on a hot summer day. We have a local produce stand here, Southside Produce, where Jon and I shop. In June and July, they start getting in these huge, sweet, ripe peaches from Alabama, and when I saw them all I could think was “Margarita”. I don’t drink alcohol very often, but when I do I go for tequila, always. There’s no better drink to have by the pool in summer than an ice-cold marg.

How to Make the Perfect Summer Margarita with Kombucha

True to form, I always have a bunch of kombucha in my fridge. Especially right now since we are hosting our summer session of The Fermented Drink Semester at The Cultured Guru School of Fermentation. I wanted to use kombucha in this recipe to add a few vitamins and healthy postbiotic compounds to my cocktail. I made a simple lemon kombucha with kombucha primary fermented sweet tea and lemon juice, secondary fermented for 7 days. You can use any light flavored, peach-flavored, or lemon/lime kombucha in this recipe.

To make these margaritas, we’re going to mash and mull the peaches in the lime juice. This makes a lot of peach pulp, which you can leave in or strain out.

Here’s the supplies you’ll need:

  • a pitcher
  • tamper or wooden spoon
  • a mesh strainer
  • measuring cup

Easy 5-Ingredient Fresh Peach Margaritas

The thing I love most about this recipe is that you don’t need any fancy peach syrup or liquor… just some ripe, fresh summer peaches! Altogether, it’s just five ingredients. If you want to make a virgin margarita, it’s only four! 🙂

Here’s all the ingredients you need:

  • 5 ounces tequila (I use patron)
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup
  • 2 cups lemon, lime, or peach kombucha (you can use other light citrus flavors too, like orange, grapefruit, or plain)
  • 3 fresh peaches, pitted and sliced
