For those who’re utilizing contemporary peaches, you’ll must peel them first. I feel the simplest means to do that is with a vegetable peeler.

For those who don’t peel the peaches, you’ll should pressure the puree by a high quality mesh strainer earlier than making the cocktails. This step can get messy, so I want to peel the peaches first and skip the straining.

For those who’re utilizing frozen peaches, permit them to thaw earlier than mixing. 

As soon as thawed/peeled, pop the peaches in a blender and puree till clean.
