Finding antique cocktail recipes—or, in this case, peach blow fizz recipes—has introduced me to the Peach Blow, a beverage with an intriguing name. The Philadelphia Inquirer’s May 2, 1909 issue is where the article is from. A reader requested the Peach Blow and Lilac Fizz recipes. The publication was delighted to comply. In the midst of peach season and more than a century later, I’m delighted to present it to you. I would make the Lilac Fizz if I had any Creme de Yvette, but I don’t.
This is peach season in Ontario. A peach from Ontario is on par with any other peach on earth. They don’t have glowing skin or meat, nor are they giant mutant peaches; they just have a fantastic flavor.
I occasionally purchase foreign peaches that appear to be really stunning, but when I get them home, they are a tough, fibrous, tasteless mess. On the other hand, local peaches aren’t plucked too early and allowed to ripen on a truck. Local peaches are almost always preferable.
Anyhow, Peach Blow’s formula is quite straightforward, and if you can create a Ramos Gin Fizz, you can make this fizz as well. I enjoy a good Ramos Gin Fizz but making one can be difficult. The Ramos Gin Fizz appears to be improved upon in the Peach Blow Fizz by the addition of a fresh peach.
Ingredients for Peach Blow Fizz
- 1 lime, 1 and 12 oz. Old Tom Gin Juice
- 1 tablespoon of heavy cream
- 1 whole peach
- 1 teaspoon sugar, water (Perrier)
Directions for Peach blow Fizz
- Gin, lime, peach, cream, and sugar should be combined in a mixing glass. Add ice, then vigorously shake. Alternately, omit the ice for a while and combine it with a stick blender. This will emulsify the peach and provide an incredibly smooth beverage. Once the ice has been added, mix briskly before straining into a tall fizz or zombie glass. Add soda water or Perrier to finish off.
- To get the peach as smooth as possible, I strongly advise using a stick (immersion) blender (or ordinary blender). If you simply shake the beverage, you could find that it’s a little thick and decide to fine-strain it.
- This beverage is quite good. You’ll enjoy the Peach Blow if you enjoy the Ramos Gin Fizz. Utilizing a whole lime significantly reduces the sweetness of the beverage, adding to its refreshing nature. You will experience all of the aroma and flavor that a perfectly ripe peach has to offer. The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth because of the cream, just like a properly crafted Ramos Gin Fizz. The peach contributes the majority of the drink’s sweetness; the sugar only marginally enhances it. Gin adds some depth to the background.
- A whole peach is used to give the beverage a solid, smooth texture. The Peach Blow is light, but it has a more pleasing mouthfeel than a Ramos Gin Fizz, which is as airy as a cloud.
- Put this drink on the menu if you work at a bar and have access to fresh peaches. The Ramos Gin Fizz is easier to create, but the Ramos Peach Blow has all the same great flavors, plus fresh peach sweetness.
- This beverage also comes in a strawberry-based variant. The drink takes on the appearance of the skin of a peach when the strawberries are combined with the other components, thus the name.
- This beverage ought to be available on menus everywhere, if not at all.
