1tspfinely grated peeled ginger
When using fresh peaches, 30 seconds in boiling water then into an ice water bath will make them easy to peel. Peel and slice all the peaches.
One peach is going to be cooked down, so reserve that one. Take the rest of them and arrange them on parchment lined cookie sheets and put them in the freezer until solid, about 2-3 hours.
Put the reserved peach in a small saucepan with 1/4 cup water and heat on high until boiling. Reduce heat to medium and cook down until most of the water has evaporated and the peach very soft, about 10 minutes. Cool cooked peach in refrigerator. (Or freezer for about 20 minutes if your other peaches are already frozen.)
Take all ingredients and put in blender. Blend until smooth. This may take a bit of stirring depending on your blender. Also, if your blender is a bit under-powered, blend one half of the recipe and then the other half.
Drink will be very thick! Spoon out into four glasses. Garnish with a sprig of sage or mint as desired.
If using bagged frozen peaches, remove one peach worth of slices and bring to a boil with the water as directed. Chill until cool, then proceed with the rest of the recipe.
