Infused spirits are deceptively easy to make at home.

Combine select flavorings in a clean bottle or Mason jar with your alcohol of choice, store the container in a cool, dry place until the flavor has had a chance to infuse, and then strain.

Timing is really based on personal preference. Taste as you go. You’ll know it’s ready when it tastes right.

As for what to do with the bottle once it’s ready you could drink it straight up or make yourself a spiced Old-Fashioned.

Place the peaches in a Mason jar and add the bourbon. Seal and shake to combine.


Set aside in a cool, dark place for 4 weeks to allow the bourbon time to infuse.


Strain the infused bourbon through cheesecloth, squeezing out excess liquid from the peaches. The infusion will keep for up to 1 year stored in a cool, dark place.
