HOW TO INFUSE YOUR OWN PEACH BOURBON (AND TURN IT IN TO A DELICIOUS CRAFT COCKTAIL)

I recently discovered the books Infuse: Oil, Spirit, Water and Shake: a new perspective on cocktails (I highly recommend both!), and have been having a blast experimenting with new botanical drinks and infusions. It's amazing what you can create with just a few simple ingredients!

My most recent experiment was a peach-infused bourbon. This one has to sit for 4 weeks, but it's so easy to make and definitely worth the wait. I used some super-flavorful, organically grown peaches I found at farmers market, and my bourbon turned out perfectly sweet and very peachy. Here's how I did it: 

PEACH BOURBON

INGREDIENTS

1-2 Peaches
14 oz Kentucky Bourbon 

DIRECTIONS

  • Slice peaches and combine with bourbon in a mason jar
  • Seal and shake to combine
  • Let sit in a cool, dark place for 4 weeks
  • Strain through a cheesecloth and enjoy!

Infuse recommends using the peach bourbon to make their "Spiced Bourbon Old Fashioned" (recipe also in the book), but I decided to hit up craft-cocktail-guru and booze-wizard Parker Yates to create an original (and delicious) CRUDE cocktail recipe to share with you! Check out Parker's recipe below.

1/2 oz Freshly Juiced Ginger

  • Shake well and serve in an old fashioned glass
  • Garnish with candied ginger and enjoy!
Parker loves our SCRUFF Beard and Face Oil!  "I love the consistency of the oil. It doesn't leave a cakey, thick, glisten on the hands and rubbing it into the skin actually feels invigorating."
