Peach pie is a classic summertime favorite, all sweetness, and warm spice. There's a way you can have the taste of this peach dessert all year round, and even better, it's a treat that works for any happy hour. Serve this yummy peach cobbler moonshine in February and pretend that it's summer.

This DIY moonshine recipe starts off with peach simple syrup. Combine fresh peaches, vanilla pods, brown sugar, white sugar, peach tea, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir everything until the sugar is dissolved and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for a cook time of five minutes. Take the vanilla pods out and let the syrup cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, mash or muddle the rest of the peaches, then add the peach simple syrup and the moonshine (you can use, Everclear, too) and mix well. Pour the peach cobbler moonshine into mason jars. Store the jars in a cool, dark place. This peach moonshine recipe keeps for up to a year, and it gets better the longer it sits, so don't drink it right away. To make a peach cobbler cocktail, pour the peach cobbler moonshine into a glass over crushed ice, add club soda, and garnish with fresh peach slices and maybe a cinnamon stick.

If you're not a fan of pulp, use cheesecloth in a strainer to remove the peaches before making your favorite cocktail. This peach pie moonshine is the perfect mason jar gift to hand around during the holidays, just be sure to include a recipe card for the cocktail recipe.
