Peach-Infused Bourbon

The Peach Truck's recipe for Peach-Infused Bourbon

The fine folks over at The Peach Truck were kind enough to share their recipe for Fresh Georgia Peach Bourbon, using none other than Belle Meade Bourbon, of course. 

The sweet summertime flavors of peaches make beautiful harmony with the caramel notes of Belle Meade Bourbon. So simple to make, the hardest part is the wait! Once made, however, you can use this fruity elixir in anything from mint juleps to a classic old fashioned. It's definitely worth the wait. 

3-4 Fresh Georgia Peaches

1 750ml bottle of good quality Bourbon

2 tbsp granulated sugar

2 whole cloves

3 whole allspice berries

Wash the peaches and cut in half to remove the pit. Slice each half into two equal wedges. Place your peaches in the bottom of large glass jar. Add sugar, cloves and allspice before adding the bourbon and sealing tightly. Place out of direct sunlight and let steep for 7-10 days. Once infused, strain the bourbon through cheesecloth and discard the peaches.  Finished bourbon will keep indefinitely in an airtight decanter or jar.

This tasty little ditty is courtesy of our friends over at The Peach Truck and captures the flavor of summer in the glass. Using Fresh Peach Infused Bourbon, it's juicy and sweet with the caramel and vanilla flavors of Belle Meade Bourbon shining through.

3 ounces peach-infused bourbon

2-3 dashes peach bitters

1 sugar cube

1 strip of orange peel

fresh peach for garnish

 

Place the sugar cube at the bottom of an old fashioned glass. Saturate with bitters and place orange peel in glass. Muddle these ingredients together before topping with bourbon, adding a large ice cube or sphere and garnishing with a slice of fresh peach. If you do not have access to peach bitters, substitute traditional bitters.
