Watsonville, Calif., June 8, 2021– You might have heard of farm to table…but how about grill to glass? Make Dad feel like the MVP he is by pouring him a Grilled Peach Apple Smash cocktail. Juicy, ripe peaches are seared on the grill and muddled with thyme sprigs, lemon juice, honey and gin in a shaker and then topped off with a Martinelli’s Unfiltered Apple Juice floater. Swap out the gin with soda or sparkling water for the mocktail version. Garnish each glass with the remaining grilled peach slices and fresh thyme sprigs before serving. Sit back and enjoy!
