  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 cup diced peaches (peeled), you can use fresh or frozen
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 to 1 ounce peach simple syrup, depending on how strong vs sweet you want the drink)

  • Bring sugar, water, and peaches to a boil in a small saucepan. Simmer for 15 minutes. Use a fork to press down on the peaches and extract their flavor. Let cool completely. Pour mixture through a fin-meshed sieve into a bowl or liquid measuring cup. Press down on peaches with a spoon to get as much liquid out as possible. Discard solids.
