A Refreshing Four Roses Bourbon Cocktail For Kentucky Derby Season: The Peach Rose

April 19, 2019
Four Roses Peach Rose Cocktail - Kentucky Bourbon Summer and Spring Cocktails JCP Eats

Hey, y’all!

Did you attend Bourbonville last night at the Louisville Palace? A new event added to the Kentucky Derby Festival, it was designed to allow individuals that have a deep respect for our Commonwealth’s nectar — bourbon aficionados — to mix, mingle, and enjoy speciality cocktails. The event invited guests to taste signature drinks from Kentucky distilleries, enjoy Bourbon-inspired cuisine, and meet the Master Distillers.

My friends at Four Roses featured a delicious cocktail that I know y’all will love. I posted it over on my Instagram page, but wanted to share here on the blog, too. Perfect for the spring + summer, I think that this would be a lovely cocktail to serve at a Kentucky Derby Party!

Easy to make and delicious, it is sure to please a crowd. Thank me later, y’all!

Four Roses Peach Rose Cocktail


1 oz. Four Roses Single Barrel

1/4 Peach (cut into pieces)

3/4 oz. Simple Syrup

3/4 oz. Lemon Juice

1 oz. Pimms®

Splash of Ginger Beer

Crushed Ice

Basil for garnish


  1. Muddle peach with simple syrup and lemon juice, extracting the flavor.
  2. Add the Pimms® and Four Roses Single Barrel.
  3. Shake over ice and strain into a mason jar.
  4. Fill the glass with crushed ice and top it off with a splash of ginger beer.

Any cocktail infused with peach (and that has bourbon) is a cocktail for me, y’all.
