Peach Molettiere

I spend every New Years in snowy Lake Tahoe renting a big house with all my closet friends. My good friend Peter Molettiere brought a bottle of Leopold Bros. Georgia Peach Whiskey, which we found to taste delicious and have a sweet malty/syrupy feel.

Peter and I set on a mission to create a well balanced cocktail featuring the Georgia Peach Whiskey. We started out with Bourbon and Rye trying to make a peach flavored whiskey drink but it just wasn’t coming together. Then we switched gears and went to cognac and that’s where the magic started to happen. I believe we have it to a point where I feel comfortable posting it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we change it up after subsequent changes. If you do try it at home, please leave your tasting notes and feedback.
