  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 large peaches each cut into six slices you can choose to leave the skin on or take it off.
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 3/4 cups Peach Schnapps
  • 1 cup Everclear
  • Peach juice - I used a 33.8 oz liter container of Ceres 100% natural peach juice (see notes)


  • In a medium pot, combine water, sugar, peach slices and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and allow to sit until cooled to room temperature.
  • Pull out the cinnamon sticks and set aside.
  • Strain liquid into a large jar or container (with lid), pressing on solids to get every bit of liquid.
  • Add in the cinnamon sticks, Peach Schnapps, Everclear and Peach Juice.
  • Shake well.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 days.
  • Taste and adjust to your liking by adding more Everclear or Schnapps OR if you feel its too strong, add in 1/4 cup of water (or more) until it's to your liking.
  • Using a mesh strainer, slowly pour your mixture through it to remove the pulp. Pressing on solids as you do. Discard solids and repeat.
  • 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.
  • Keeps in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.


If you can't find fresh peach juice. You can substitute white grape juice.
