Peach Infused Bourbon

I bet you didn't think I could come up with more ideas for alcohol infusions.  Wrong!  These flavors really work together, and this is delicious with a variety of mixers.

3 cups bourbon (I used Maker’s Mark)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 peaches (fresh or frozen)


You may need to adjust these ingredients depending on what size jar you are using.  I used a standard mason jar, which worked well with this amount.
In a large airtight jar, add the liquor and sugar.  Seal the jar and shake to dissolve the sugar.  Next, if using fresh peachs, peel, pit, and chop into small chunks.  If using frozen, simply add the frozen peaches to the jar.

Let the infusion sit for about a week, occasionally shaking to distribute flavors.  This should last for about 3 weeks as is - if planning to keep longer than that, remove the peaches and strain.  You can also add your own label, as I did, for fun.  This is also a nice holiday gift.  Enjoy!
