Ingredients
Apple Pie Infused Bourbon
  • 4 gala apples, peeled/cored and chopped into medium chunks
  • 8 cinnamon sticks
  • Zest of 2 lemons (I used a zester to carefully peel my lemons in long strips - avoiding the bitter white pith)
  • 750 mL bourbon (I used Bulleit)
Peach Infused Bourbon
  • 4-5 peaches, peeled/cored and chopped into medium chunks
  • 750 mL bourbon
Instructions
Apple Pie Infused Bourbon:
  1. Place chopped apples, cinnamon sticks, and lemon peel inside a large glass jar.
  2. Pour bourbon inside jar.
  3. Seal jar and give it a good shake.
  4. Place jar inside your fridge and allow mixture to sit for 1-3 days, giving it a light shake once a day.
  5. When ready to drink, strain your whiskey. I put a piece of cheesecloth over a mesh strainer on top of a pot with pouring lips, and poured my bourbon into that pot through the cheesecloth/strainer. I then poured the strained bourbon from the pot into my smaller corked bottles.
  6. Enjoy in an old-fashioned glass over ice, or in a cocktail.
