Notes
Many variations of this recipe exist, some calling for more water and some for less; some substitute black tea. You want a dry peach spirit, ideally one that's been barrel-aged, like the brandies by Dutch's and Peach Street; alternately, Laird's Bonded can be substituted. This recipe makes one individual portion.
