Peter Rabbit Cocktail Recipe

Recently, I went on a #BloggersGo trip with my best gal pals. One of the restaurants we dined at was Searsuckers (review post upcoming). Now at Searsuckers, I had the best cocktail I have ever had the pleasure of sipping on. It was perfect, refreshing, and oh so hard to duplicate; but after a search on the internet I finally managed it. Now, the main purpose of this post is to highlight my favorite Touch products by Good Cook. I figured since I used three different ones in just making this tasty beverage, this would be the perfect avenue to do so. Since the recipe I used called for lemon zest, I used the Citrus Zester to make my job easier.

I also needed to wash the fresh basil since I picked it right off the plant. Pretty fresh, but that means pretty dirty. What an easy job when I used the 6″ Strainer to clean the leaves in the running water.

I also had to squeeze fresh lemons to make the basil lemonade, but how would I know when I reached 1 cup? Yup! You got it! Good Cook has the “Measure From Above” Cup Measuring Cup which makes measuring liquids a breeze! No more bending down eyeing whether or not you have made the mark.

Are you ready for the recipe? You bet you are…now this will take some patience, but I promise you…The Peter Rabbit Cocktail recipe is totally worth it! Now the recipe below calls for Pimms #1 which my local grocer or liquor store doesn’t carry. I am pleased to present how to make Pimms #1 at home: How to make Pimms #1

Take a large basil leaf and place it flat in the palm of one hand, clap the other hand over leaf to release oils and aroma. Fold leaf in half and slide down inside of glass so it’s just peaking one third of the way out.

  1. I really like the Ceramic Pie Plate, 9″- Red. Reminds me of the ones my grandma used to have.

  2. Followed on Pinterest……..….… emscout9…………… ………..( Paol Trenny … emscout9 at Hotmail dot com)

  3. I really like the Pancake Kit. I love making breakfast pancakes for my granddaughters 2 times a week. It would be fun using this!

  4. The 7″ Santoku Knife is definitely my favorite product out of everything! I need one in my kitchen desperately! :):)

  5. I love the Nonstick Chef’s Knife, 5″
    Item #18808

    thank you for the awesome giveaway!

  6. I had the point counter ready to get the points from entering the Good Cooks Treasure Hunt but it was already over. Please deduct the points I got from that, as I didn’t do what was necessary to get them. Sorry about that.

  7. I was looking for a cake turntable but didn’t find one, the Ceramic 8 Piece Bake Set in red caught my eye. I could use all those pieces.

  8. It is extremely difficult to decide. I was looking at the bakeware set or maybe the cutlery set. However, I do need a meat thermometer.

  9. The pizza stone is something I’ve always wanted. I’m curious about how well they work.

  10. I love their lettuce knife. I let my 6yo niece help me in the kitchen – she loves to slice stuff like lettuce, zucchini and basil using it.

  11. I used to have an old dial face scale that was my grandmother’s. While cleaning the kitchen one
    cold winters day, I knocked it off my prep table and broke the weighing pan. I’ve been meaning to replace it–but it just has not been in budget. I would truly appreciate the 11lb Digital Food Scale. I use a scale at work and it makes baking so much easier.

  12. Hard to choose a favorite, but I think I’d have to go with the Kitchen Shears with Herb Stripper.

  13. Sounds like an interesting cocktail! I love the Measure From Above cup concept! I definitely need one of those!
