Beach Mojito: A Cocktail Made with Peach Soda

To celebrate the refreshing new boutique sodas (pops, if you prefer) that we’re carrying at selected Nordstrom stores, we’re experimenting by adding our favorite adult ingredients (clear, brown or bubbly) to these distinct flavors.

When we heard there was a fluorescent blue soda made by Jeff’s brother, we knew we had a winner on our hands. Who is Jeff or his brother? No clue, but he put his name on it—or his sibling’s—so it had to be good.

You’d expect peach soda to be pink, but Redondo Peach shatters all the norms. And so will this delectable mojito that pairs perfectly with an endless supply of sun and sand—even if the beach is really just a figment of your imagination. Our concoction is like drinking in the ocean air on a coast lined with peach trees, coconut groves and blueberry bushes. So soak up the deep blue with a little rum for a vicarious vacation that’ll be peachy.
