Frozen Summer Fun Day Part Two

Canned fruit are a great substitute if fresh is not accessible or if unripe fruit is the only produce to your grocery store currently carries.  In fact I find more often that grocers will carry unripe sour fruit. That should not stop you from creating your favorite cocktails or desserts. Here are some recipes inspired by peaches.
