Celebrating the month’s flavour: Peach Liqueur

peachesbutton

 

I know it is almost the last of September but I’ve still a couple extra peach treats to share the next two days.

This particular recipe we are going to be enjoying during the cold winter months while we imagine what summer will feel like again.

It’s Peach Liqueur and somehow I’m going to have hide it from myself.

What I’m shocked about this whole procedure is how easy it was.  

My simple syrup was made in a flash and left to cool before having brandy and vodka added to it.

Peaches were sliced and placed in some of my vintage jars with the peels still on and then the liquid was poured over.

Lids were added and my jars sat for four weeks until being drained off (do yourself a favour and eat some of those liquor soaked peaches-what a huge treat).

Seriously!  Is anything more fun than making your own hooch?

Make sure you get out your very prettiest glasses to serve in.

  1. Sounds yummy. I would like to try but many only be able to get nectarines now. Will it be as good?

    • I did a bit of internet hunting and it looks like nectarines would be a great substitute. Let me know how it all turns out.

  2. This sounds fabulous! On my list for next summer!
