Thoughts On This Peach Bourbon Old Fashioned
I’m a whiskey mama and in particular I like the taste of bourbon. The sweetness of the peaches helps to mellow this booze forward cocktail as they melt. If you are into peaches and also like bourbon, you’ll love this. Also pro-tip for any drink that needs chilling, if you run out of ice, frozen fruit is great substitute (how do you think I came up with this one).
