Peach Cobbler Moonshine


My Apple Pie Moonshine was such a hit (with my real-life friends and on the web) that I wanted to try another version. A friend gave me fresh peaches so there was my solution. I modeled this Peach Cobbler Moonshine recipe after the Apple Pie Moonshine recipe. However, I had a difficult time finding a base juice in a peach flavor. Therefore, I went with a white grape peach which I thought turned out good.

Peach Cobbler Moonshine is simple to make, the hardest part is waiting while it cools! To make it, you simply boil the peaches, juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon long enough to melt the sugar. I want to stress one point: Do not add the Everclear and Peach Schnapps until your mixture is cool. Add alcohol to boiling or hot liquid could cause a fire.


  • White grape peach juice.
  • Fresh or canned peaches.
  • Brown Sugar.
  • Cinnamon.
  • Everclear. Or whiskey, bourbon, or vodka
  • Peach Schnapps.

For Peach Moonshine Whiskey substitute whiskey or bourbon for the Everclear. As well, You can use vodka instead of Everclear. 

For a summer beverage, add your Peach Everclear to sweet tea. So good!!

  • You can easily double this recipe. The more the better! It’s great for a crowd. Simply use the -/+ for the servings to increase the servings.
  • Feel free to add more cinnamon if you want a stronger cinnamon flavor. Certainly, you can omit if you don’t like cinnamon. The peach flavor is amazing on its own.
  • Use any canning jar you like as well as any size.


  1. You want to store the Peach Cobbler Moonshine in the refrigerator. I personally think it tastes better if it sits for a couple of days to mellow out.
  2. I also prefer to strain out the peaches and leave just the liquid. You can make Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding or Peach Pound Cake with the peaches! Garnish your cocktail with fresh peaches and a sprig of mint.
  3. If peaches are not in season, you can use canned or frozen peaches. If you use canned peaches, get them packed in light syrup or the cocktail will be too sweet.

  1. How long will this last if refrigerated? If air tight, will it last if not refrigerated? Thanks!

  2. I am making this right now, and I have already messed up. I added the alcohol to the pot to boil. Do I need to throw this out and start over?

  3. I am making this recipe right now. I messed up. I’ve added the alcohol in the pot to boil, instead of waiting for mixture to cool at room temperature. Do I have to throw this away and start over?

  4. Is it possible to replace Everclear with Vodka or something similiar? Where I live it’s almost impossible to get alcohol over 40%

  5. 4 stars
    After boiling, should peaches be removed altogether or leave to be mixed with the alcohol?

  6. Why only use a cup & a half of everclear? Other recipes call for atleast a liter.

  7. Do you think if I made it now it would be okay for Christmas? And also, you don’t recommend keeping the peaches in there, correct?

    1. I didn’t have luck with canning/sealing it because of the sugar and the peaches. Freezing will help prolong the life some but not for an extended time.
