With summer in full swing, we have been enjoying the beautiful weather and eating as many dinners as possible outside. This time of year, I love grilling anything I can, and for our Sunday supper last weekend, we finished our meal with delicious grilled and topped peaches and a peach whiskey smash. South Carolina grows the best peaches, and right in the height of peach season right now, I'm finding anything and everything to do with them.

Seriously, how good do all of these ingredients look? Yup, that mint you see there is from my herb garden. If I can grow fresh mint, I know you can, too!
Here's how to make my grilled peaches with ice cream and honey pecan glaze:

- fresh peaches, sliced in half with the pits removed
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1 quart vanilla ice cream
1. Place the peaches on the grill (sliced side down) and cook for 5 minutes with the lid closed.
2. While the peaches are grilling, combine the butter, honey, and pecans in a small bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds.  Stir the glaze and set aside for later.
3. After 5 minutes on the grill, turn the peaches 45 degrees for perfect grill marks.  Close the lid again and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
4. Remove the peaches from the grill and allow to cook slightly before topping each half with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of glaze.
The perfect pairing for any dessert is always a delicious cocktail.  Whiskey and summer go hand-in-hand to me, and Jameson is triple distilled and remarkably smooth.
If you're looking for more of an island flair for your evening drink, Malibu is an original coconut rum from the Caribbean and tastes just like summertime!
Using Jameson, my favorite summer cocktail is a peach whiskey smash:

- peach slices
- lemon slices
- fresh mint
- Jameson Irish Whiskey
- crushed ice

1. In a low ball glass, muddle together 2-3 peach slices, 1 lemon slice, a couple mint leaves, and 2 ounces of Jameson.
2. Top the glass with crushed ice.
3. Garnish with a lemon slice and sprig of mint.
