Basil Peach Brandy Fizz
By Bartender Courtney
First make some brandied peaches. I thought this was going to be hard but it’s just simple syrup made out of brandy.
For Brandied Peaches
- 3-4 ripe peaches (Chilton County if possible from the peach man on the town square)
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup brandy
- Peel peaches and cut into quarters.
- Warm water and sugar in saucepan over medium high heat.
- Whisk constantly until sugar dissolves.
- Add peaches and let them simmer about 2 minutes.
- Remove peaches and add to a jar.
- Turn off stove and add the brandy and whisk.
- Pour over peaches.
- Allow to cool enough to cover.
- Put in the fridge for one day (or just start eating because they are so tasty)!
For the Cocktail
- 1/4 of brandied peaches
- 1-2 basil leaves
- 2 oz peach brandy (made from the brandied peaches)
- 2 oz rye whiskey – Jack Daniel’s or Basil Hayden preferred
- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- Club soda
- Muddle peaches, lemon juice and basil
- Add brandy, whiskey and ice
- Shake shake shake
- Pour into two glasses
- Add ice and top with club soda
- Garnish with peach slice and basil leaf
- Enjoy and make sure to eat all the drunk fruit
