Peach bourbon attempt #1: TOTAL fail.

Well......... the peach bourbon I've been dreaming up in my head did not turn out as I'd planned.


First off, I accidentally started with whiskey rather than bourbon. 

Then, I thought that 4 peaches for a half gallon would be plenty.  I was so so wrong.

Eeeeeiiiiiiiwww......... this just looks like a science experiment gone wrong. :)

So, here's what I did:

Peel and slice 4 peaches, and place in 1/2 gallon of bourbon whiskey.  Let sit for 5 days.  Drain the bourbon whiskey and voila!  You have peach bourbon whiskey.

When I realized that this just tasted like straight whiskey, I decided to put the peaches in a blender and blend them in.  Still nothing.

Then, I added 1/2 gallon of peach nectar.  Still nothing.  DRAT!

Anyways........... in the end it was fantastic as just a whiskey.  Mixed it with some lemons and some homemade sweet tea and I was a happy girl.

I'll get you next time peach bourbon............ next time!


  1. I probably shouldn't tell you that I'm laughing but I am.
    It just makes me feel better that I'm not the only one that sometimes gets pitiful results from a DIY
