We are in the heart of peach season and the dog days of summer, so cool down with a fancy ice cream float. This version features spicy ginger beer and vanilla poached peaches. The vanilla peaches taste amazing with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or yoghourt too.
cup granulated sugar
Tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
tsp vanilla bean paste
pint vanilla ice cream
cups ginger beer, chilled
In a saucepan over medium heat whisk together the water, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla bean paste.
As the mixture begins to simmer, add the peaches. Cook until softened, about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the poaching liquid and let cool.
When the peaches are cool enough to handle, peel off the skins and slice into wedges.
Divide the peaches evenly amongst 4 to 6 glasses.
Top with a scoop of ice cream.
Finish with ginger beer and enjoy!
