Grilled Mint Julep Peaches-
Recipes don't get much easier than this. And who wouldn't delight at the prospect of using Bourbon in a dessert? Peach halves are lightly grilled until barely warmed through and then drizzled with a mint-infused bourbon and brown sugar glaze. Top the whole thing with some vanilla ice cream, and you've got yourself a real summer treat.
