You better really like bourbon. The recipe calls for such much bourbon that it covers all of the peach flavor. Couldn't taste peach at all, just bourbon. Nice idea, but need to change proportions.

Total: 10 Minutes
- 1/2 cup peach preserves*
- 1/2 cup hot water

- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- Garnishes: lemon slices, fresh basil sprigs
- 1. Whisk together peach preserves and hot water in a glass pitcher until preserves are dissolved. Whisk in bourbon and lemon juice.

- *Seedless blackberry, apricot, or ginger preserves may be substituted.
- Quick Ideas: Add garnishes to match or complement the preserves flavor you choose. Fresh blackberries and mint sprigs look great on glasses of Blackberry-Bourbon Sours, while lemon and kiwifruit slices are fancy touches to Ginger-Bourbon Cocktails.
