Cocktail Inspiration:

My inspiration behind this cocktail is the rich history of Charleston, Golf and the Harleston Green originally located downtown. I can credit the majority of my bartending career and starting my beautiful family too Charleston. Golf was originally brought down and play between Calhoun and Beaufain from Rutledge to Barre over 226 years ago. Most people also don’t know that South Carolina is also one of the top two exporters of peaches in the south. All this history made made want to create a cocktail centered around celebration, and how often do you see scotch and champagne come together?
