September 27, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey Hey!

Here in NJ we are coming to the end of peach season and we are officially in autumn. We were inspired by our recent trip to Savannah, Georgia and we wanted to share one more peach cocktail for the road. Made with Bourbon, fresh herbs and a peach simple syrup...  we hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!

This makes 2 drinks! Let's get started!


Here's what you need:

For Garnish
2 Dehydrated Peach Slices (we used our air fryer on the lowest setting)
2 Sprigs of Rosemary


For Simple Syrup
4 oz. Sugar
8 oz. Water
1 Peach Chopped
1-2 Sprigs of Thyme

For Drink
1-2 Peaches Diced
3 oz. Peach/Thyme Simple Syrup
4 oz. Kentucky Bourbon
3 oz. Lime Juice
3-4 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
3-4 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
Ginger Bitters


You will also need a mixing glass, bar spoon, hawthorne strainer, fine mesh strainer, muddler, 2 rocks tumblers, culinary torch/lighter and optional cocktail smoker. 



Let's Make the Peach Thyme Simple Syrup!

  1. In small pot or saucepan add:

    • Sugar (4 oz.)

    • Water (4 oz.)

    • 1 Peach (chopped)

    • 1-2 Sprigs of Thyme

  2. Cook on Medium heat until liquid is reduced by half.

  3. Strain and Set Aside to Cool


Let's Make the Drink!

  1. First, let's smoke our glasses. We used our Foghat cocktail smoker along with their bourbon barrel oak fuel and a few pieces of rosemary. If you do not have a smoker, you can carefully light your rosemary and wood chips until smoking (not on fire) and place your rocks tumbler upside down over it to capture the smoke. Set aside.

  2. In your mixing glass, add:

    • Diced Peaches

    • Rosemary

    • Thyme

    • Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (3 oz.)

  3. Muddle.

  4. Add Remaining Ingredients:

    • Ice

    • Peach Simple Syrup (3 oz.)

    • Bourbon (4 oz.)

    • Few Dashes of  Bitters

  5. Stir gently.

  6. Remove rocks tumbler from smoke and fill glass with ice.

  7. Double strain your cocktail using fine mesh strainer and your hawthrone strainer between both of your tumblers.

  8. Garnish with your dehydrated peach slice and sprig of rosemary.

  9. Enjoy!
