Whisky Peaches

Wednesday, June 8, 2022
Whisky Peaches are a delicious two for one recipe! The Whisky Soaked Peaches make a fun cocktail garnish but you also get the most delicious Peach Whiskey for making cocktails. 

Two jars of Whisky Peaches with three skewered peaches in front to garnish a drink.

I made these Whisky Peaches for Fathers Day for Colt at his request.

The Whisky Soaked Peaches make a great garnish for summer cocktails like Peach Whisky Iced Tea and the Peach Whisky that forms in the jars makes the most delicious summer cocktails. 

Using ripe sweet peaches that are still firm are the secret to the peaches holding their shape during the soak in the whisky.

The peaches will brown slightly the longer they soak in the whisky. I recommend soaking them for at least 48 hours before enjoying the peaches and store well for a few weeks in the fridge. Just make sure the peaches are always covered in the whisky to prevent them from going bad.

We also made Whisky Soaked Cherries when we made the peaches. You'll have to tell me which is your favorite.

  1. Could I use honey instead of sugar?

    1. I'm sure honey would work and would be delicious! Thanks, Serena

  2. How long will this last in fridge?

    1. I like to use them with in 2 weeks because the fruit will slowly change in texture over time.

  3. Can frozen peaches be used?

    1. I don't see why they couldn't. They might just be a little softer.

  4. Can you water bath these?

    1. I am not comfortable enough to give a definitive answer. Yellow Peaches are safe to water bath can in syrup because they are acidic but white peaches are not safe to use. I don't know if it would change or concentrate the alcohol or evaporate the alcohol which could effect the PH level. I'm not sure this helps. Thanks, Serena

  5. Could you use canned or commercially jarred peaces?

  6. Can they be put in pantry for longer periods of time

    1. They would need to be canned to be stored in the pantry safe but I don't know exactly what the logistics would be to can them properly and make them shelf stable. I also don't know how it would affect the alcohol content either due to the heat. Thanks, Serena
