How to Peel Peaches

Peeling peaches isn’t hard, but just make sure to pick the method that best suits your peaches.

If you have quite soft, fully ripe peaches, blanch them.

Cut a shallow X in the skin on the pointed end of the peach.

Submerge the peaches in boiling water for 40-60 seconds.

Immediately transfer the peaches to a bowl of ice water to cool.

Slowly peel off the skins; they should come off easily.  If the skins don’t come off easily, that means the peaches weren’t ripe enough for this method to work.

If you have mostly ripe, but firm peaches, cut off the peels with a paring knife or veggie peeler.

Can I make virgin peach daiquiri ahead of time?

Yes, you can make it ahead of time.  Pour the daiquiri into a freezer-safe pitcher or glasses and freeze.  Let it thaw for a few minutes, then break it up with a fork until smooth.

Pro Tips for Making Virgin Peach Daiquiri

  • Use fresh peaches instead of canned for a better flavor.
  • Squeeze your own lemon juice for the best taste.  The bottled kind doesn’t taste as good!
  • Don’t have simple syrup? Make your own by stirring together 1 cup of sugar (296g) with 1 cup of water (236 ml) in a small saucepan until dissolved, then chill until needed.
  • Make a frozen peach daiquiri by freezing the fresh peaches on a cookie sheet for a few hours until solid, then blend them with the other ingredients.
  • If you’re making a frozen daiquiri, use a powerful blender.  Start on low for 20-30 seconds or so, then turn to high speed.

  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 6 cups (48 fl oz) 1x

Description

A refreshing non alcoholic summer drink, virgin peach daiquiri is the perfect treat for kids, teens, and adults.  This easy mocktail is made with fresh peaches, simple syrup, rum extract, and ice, plus a garnish of mint.  It’s a great way to enjoy fresh peaches while they’re in season!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 cups (1.05 kg) peeled and diced fresh peaches (about 8 large peaches)
  • 1 cup simple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 4 sprigs of fresh mint

Instructions

Preparing the Peaches (30 minutes)

  1. Rinse about 8 large peaches, then peel them.  If the peaches aren’t very soft, peel them with a vegetable peeler or paring knife.  However, if they are very soft and ripe, cut a shallow X at the pointed end of each peach and submerge them in boiling water for 40-60 seconds, then place in an ice water bath to cool.  The skin should peel off easily.
  2. Cut the peaches by slicing them in half, then twisting or pulling the two halves apart.  Pull or cut out the pit, then cut each peach into 8 slices.  Cut each slice into 4-5 smaller chunks.
  3. Measure out 6 cups of diced peaches (1.05 kg).

Making the Peach Daiquiri (20 minutes)

  1. Puree the peaches 1 cup at a time.  You should have about 4 cups of peach puree.
  2. Stir together the peach puree, simple syrup, lemon juice, and rum extract in a large pitcher; then pour 2 cups of the mixture into the blender.  Gradually blend in half of the crushed ice, then divide the daiquiri among four 12-ounce hurricane glasses.
  3. Repeat with the remaining peach mixture and crushed ice.  Serve the daiquiris immediately with a sprig of fresh mint.

Notes

  • It’s super easy to make your own simple syrup.  Stir together 1 cup of granulated sugar and 1 cup of filtered water in a small saucepan set over medium heat until the sugar is fully dissolved.  Chill until cool.
  • For a frozen daiquiri, freeze the peeled and diced fresh peaches on a cookie sheet for a few hours, then blend with the remaining ingredients except the fresh mint.

  1. The pureed peaches are really, really good in this drink! I like the hint of lemon too. This drink looks so pretty in the hurricane glasses!
