MACON, Ga. — Georgia - we aren't called the peach state for nothin'!
Several places have incorporated the fruit into their summer drink and food menus.
Here's a list of some peach-flavored treats around Central Georgia, and where you can get them:
1. The Rookery
The Rookery's cheesecake of the month for August is the peach cobbler cheesecake!
They say it is "swirled with peaches, cooked in brown sugar and cinnamon, topped with graham crackers, peach icing, and peaches."
If you want to stop in and try the cheesecake for yourself, you can find the Rookery at 543 Cherry Street in Macon.
If cheesecake isn't your thing, they are also known for their delicious milkshakes. They have one called the "Georgia peach" if you still want to fulfill that peach craving.
2. Jag's Pizzeria
Jag's is offering some new specialty drinks for all those returning to campus in Mercer Village. They have five drinks to choose from, but they say their bar favorite is the "peach mule."
You can pair the peach drink with one of their specialty pizzas, or the pizza of the month!
