Peach Schnapps

Peach Schnapps

Intensely fruity and peach-forward with the kick of vodka, this Homemade Peach Schnapps is everything you’ll need for a peachy cocktail.




In a saucepan, add water and sugar and bring to a simmer. Once the sugar dissolves, add the lemon juice and peaches. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then pour into a 1/2 gallon mason jar. Add vodka, stir, and seal. Store in a cool dark place for 2 weeks.

Once it’s ready, pour peaches over a fine-mesh strainer and press down to get out extra juice. You can do this twice, and you can also use cheesecloth, but this one will live in the fridge because it’s a little more pulpy than the others. Now, add your peach schnapps to the bottle of your choice.
