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.
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.
