This Peach Moonshine is one of my favorite cocktails!
A while back, I posted a recipe for Apple Pie Moonshine. It is one of my all-time favorite cocktails. So, it was no surprise when I feel head-over-heels in love with this Peach Moonshine.
I can’t even count how many times I’ve given away bottles of the stuff. As soon as people try it, they are hooked!
While it has a silky smooth taste, you have to enjoy this drink slowly. It is extremely potent. It’s made with an entire bottle of 190 proof grain alcohol and an entire bottle of Peach Schnapps. You don’t want to knock back a big ol’ glass of the stuff. Start small and go slow.
This Peach Moonshine is very easy to make too. Just be sure to factor in that you need to let it sit for a few weeks before you drink it. If you try it too early, you’ll be blown away by a very strong alcohol flavor.
This moonshine is one of those things that mellows with time. Just let it sit so all of the peachy goodness has time to become one with the alcohol. It’s worth the wait. I promise.
I have quite the collection of flavored moonshine recipes. You can get them all in my eBook, How to Make Flavored Moonshine. You’ll get 16 moonshine recipes with step-by-step instructions and photos and 34 cocktail recipes you can make with the flavored moonshines. You can find out more about my ebook here.
