Fruity Pie Infused Bourbon

Sweeten up your bourbon with these fruity additions great for cocktails or straight drinking!

Apple-Pie-Bourbon-Collage

Out of all the things I’ve made in 5 years of blogging, I think this infused bourbon may be a favorite.

When we finally opened the jar, it smelled so good. Exactly like apple pie, in fact, which was both awesome and weird. In terms of taste, to my uncultured taste buds it still just tasted like bourbon, which I don’t love. Maybe a little sweeter and definitely more spice-y, but on the whole I couldn’t get past the burning taste of strong alcohol. Same with the peach infused version. Dan, on the other hand, could actually taste the peaches and apples + lemons + cinnamon, and enjoyed them both immensely. He enjoyed them so much, in fact, that I’m thinking of starting another batch soon (we’re almost out!)…

So there ya’ go – if you like bourbon, you’ll appreciate these fruit-infused versions.

Recipe Type: Infused Liquor
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.
