Georgia is known for peaches, and Capital City Package includes peaches in one of their cocktail recipes: a simple peach Bellini, pairing fresh, ripe, macerated peaches with sparkling wine, champagne, or Prosecco. Peel, pit and chop 5-6 ripe Georgia peaches and place in a glass pitcher or bowl. Stir a quarter cup of superfine (castor) sugar and a quarter cup of water in with the peaches and refrigerate until the sugar is dissolved. When ready to serve, divide the peach mixture among serving glasses and top with sparkling wine. Stir gently and enjoy.
Capital City Package spikes the summer favorite sweet tea with bourbon. Chop half an orange (no need to peel) and muddle with a few tablespoons of sugar and fresh mint leaves until the oranges release their juice, the sugar is almost dissolved and the mint leaves are bruised and torn. Add this mixture to a pitcher of your favorite iced tea and stir in a quarter cup of bourbon. Customers can of course add more bourbon to taste, if they’d prefer a spikier libation.
Encouraging customers to create their own, Capital City Package also provides a blueprint for shandies, which combine equal parts beer, soda, carbonated lemonade or ginger ale. Shandies can be intensified by mixing in malt beverages like Mike’s Hard Lemonade in place of the soda or juice. Like draft beers, shandies should be served cold with a citrus slice.
Established in 1968, Capital City Package offers a wide selection of beers, hard liquors, and wines. There is also a certified wine specialist on staff to assist customers in selecting the best wine for the occasion.
