Fresh squeezed juice from 1 orange
Whipped cream, orange zest, slice of peach (to top)

Boozy Peaches and Cream Milkshake
serves 1 large, or 2 milkshakes
2 large Ripe peaches
1 cup Full-fat vanilla ice cream
1 oz Dark rum, such as Cruzan
1 tbs Brown sugar
1/8 tsp Cinnamon
Slice the peaches in half and remove the pit. With very clean hands, squeeze the juice and pulp into a blender (this will only work with a very ripe peach). Most of the skin will stay in your hands. Alternately, you can blanch and peel the peaches. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
