Drunken Grilled Peaches
Finger licking good.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Who knew you can make fresh peaches even better by grilling them? These grilled peaches are simple to make, yummy, and just taste of summer. The marinade smells strong because of the bourbon, but in the end, they do not have a strong alcohol flavor. In fact, once they are grilled, the flavor is hardly noticeable. The bourbon just adds that little something to the peaches. Using a grill pan helps with the caramelization of the peaches and prevents them from falling through the grill grates. In the end, the peaches are sticky and sweet. We could eat them straight off the grill. But Lorna’s serving suggestion is delicious as well. A fab light, summery dessert.
