Le Vieux Pêcher

A nod to the Vieux Carre ('the old square') done as a collins with peach simple syrup (hence the name, 'the old peach tree')
12 oz Egg white (or Aqua Faba)
12 oz Cognac VSOP (Hennessy V.S.O.P)
12 oz Rye, Old Overholt
1 oz Simple syrup (peach, see note)
34 oz Lemon juice
2 oz Seltzer water
1 sli Lemon peel (as garnish)
2 spg Mint (as garnish)
Spirit, Lemon juice, egg whites, simple syrup into your tin. Dry shake (or reverse shake - however you like). Shake with ice. Add seltzer to tin. Strain into glass with ice - I use a larger rocks glass.. Express lemon and drop into drink. Mint as a garnish is nice as well.
Peach Simple Syrup is deadly delicious. I did a 1:1 simple syrup with a single peach sliced up and into the pot. Let it sit for a good 30 minutes.
