Summer sipping is one of my favorite pastimes and there’s nothing better than a refreshing cocktail. Whether you’re enjoying a cocktail poolside or on the front porch, you’ve got to make this large batch Mixed Whiskey Peach Punch cocktail recipe. You can control how sweet you want to make it and it makes multiple servings. My neighbors always ask me to make it!
Every summer, after visiting our local farm, we have an abundance of fresh peaches. I never want any fresh produce to go to waste. Adding fresh peach slices to this punch looks appetizing and adds tons of great summer flavor. I love seeing them floating in the pitcher and adding a few to each glass. It looks like the perfect summer cocktail.
Looking for even more whiskey cocktails to rock your summer? I’ve got you covered! Refreshing Bourbon Spiked Lemonade has ginger ale and mint for added flavor. Whiskey Apple Punch uses fresh apples for a large batch cocktail.
How To Make Large Batch Whiskey Peach Punch Cocktail
You can make this punch a few hours ahead of time, before an event. The flavors will only meld together even better and create the peach flavor you really want to bring out.
Cutting Sugar And Saving Calories In Your Whiskey Peach Punch
If you’re watching your sugars or just trying to be healthier, you can use an unsweet tea. I like to substitute homemade sweet tea for Southern Breeze Sweet Tea – it’s made with Truvia. You can purchase it from Amazon and I love keeping it around the house. It’s a great way to enjoy sweet tea without the sugar and I make it every week. Use it in this Whiskey Peach Cocktail recipe to cut down the calories.
What Type Of Whiskey To Use
You can use a bourbon whiskey that has fruity notes, or even find one with a hint of peach. When you’re cooking, you don’t have to purchase an expensive whiskey. However, since this is a cocktail, I’d recommend a nicer whiskey that will add to your cocktail. Look for flavor depth and a smooth finish.
