Peach Fuzzies

Long before “il miracolo del boom” (caused largely by the Spoleto Festival USA) brought yuppies, fancy bars, and peach schnapps to Charleston, we were drinking a truly fuzzy peach drink, a frozen daiquiri made with un-skinned fresh peaches. Some people make them with frozen pink lemonade, which is fine (grape juice is used as coloring in the better brands), but I prefer the more subtle flavor of lime as a backup to the fresh peach flavor.


  • ¼ cup or 1 jigger light rum
  • juice of ½ lime
  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar (or granulated sugar put in the blender for a few seconds until finely ground)
  • 1 ripe fresh peach, pitted but unpeeled
  • 2 cups crushed ice (or several ice cubes put in the blender and crushed)


Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until uniformly smooth and frozen, adding ice if desired.
