Total time: 
Serves: 48 ounces
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1½ cups brown sugar
  • 4 large peaches, each cut into six slices you can (leave skin on)
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • ¾ cups Peach Schnapps
  • 1 cup+ Everclear
  • Peach juice - I used a 33.8 oz (liter) container of Ceres 100% natural peach juice (see notes)
  1. In a medium pot, combine water, sugar, peach slices and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to sit until cooled to room temperature.
  4. Pull out the cinnamon sticks and set aside.
  5. Strain liquid into a large jar or container (with lid), pressing on solids to get every bit of liquid.
  6. Add in the cinnamon sticks, Peach Schnapps, Everclear and Peach Juice.
  7. Shake well.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 2 days.
  9. Taste and adjust to your liking by adding more Everclear or Schnapps OR if you feel its too strong, add in ¼ cup of water (or more) until it's to your liking.
  10. Using a mesh strainer, slowly pour your mixture through it to remove the pulp. Pressing on solids as you do. Discard solids and repeat.
  11. I like to serve this as cold as possible, so I put it in a cooler of ice or in the freezer for an hour before serving. I serve it in shot glasses.
  12. Keeps in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.
If you can't find fresh peach juice. You can substitute white grape juice.
