A very untypical cocktail, this was made with what we had on hand!
One of our favorite times of the year has arrived, Peach Season, and with the wonderful fuzzy globes of goodness! We are lucky enough to have some beautiful peach trees that are loaded with peaches, meaning we have to come up with all kinds of ways to use the peaches. One of the ways we always turn to is our 7 year old’s favorite dessert, pie, and he always asks for it for his birthday in lieu of the traditional birthday cake.

Our peaches are super juicy and sweet and while this is perfect for eating fresh off the tree, when you want a pie with a tender flaky crust, you have to get some of the juice out of the peaches so that the pie doesn’t get soggy. We make our peach pie filling by slicing up the peaches and with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice and letting them sit in a bowl to get nice and happy.
The sugar makes the peaches give up a bunch of their juice, so we pour the whole mixture into a colander and strain out juice so it doesn’t go to waste. This juice is sweet and spicy and far to good to waste, so it was only natural to find a way to make a cocktail, and what goes better with peaches than bourbon?
Combining the caramel and vanilla notes of the bourbon with the sweet peach juice and spicy cinnamon and nutmeg makes this taste just like a peach pie in a glass!
