Tincture of peaches on vodka or other strong alcoholic basis turns out fragrant, moderately sweet with a well-perceptible taste of the fruit. It is only important to adhere to the correct recipe, which allows you to extract all the necessary substances without heat treatment, which worsens the taste.

To prepare the tincture, ripe fresh or frozen (pre-defrost) peaches of any variety are suitable, the more fragrant and juicy the fruits, the better. Damaged and rotten parts of the pulp must be removed. The recommended alcohol base is vodka or cheap cognac. You can also use diluted ethyl alcohol or well-purified moonshine.

Ingredients:

  • peaches – 1 kg;
  • vodka (moonshine, alcohol 40-45%) – 1 liter;
  • sugar (liquid honey) – 200 grams;
  • cinnamon – 1 stick (optional);
  • almond oil-2-3 drops (optional).

Recipe for tincture on peaches

1. Wash the peaches, remove the seeds, cut the pulp into pieces and put it in a jar.

When insisting on strong alcohol, harmful substances are released from the bones – prussic acid and cyanides. To get an almond flavor, it is better to use oil.

2. Pour in the sugar (pour in the honey), close the jar with a lid, shake several times. Put it in a sunny place, for example, a window sill, for a day. This time is enough for the peaches to let the juice flow.

3. If desired, add cinnamon and almond oil.

4. Pour in the alcohol base, mix, close the lid tightly.

5. Infuse in a dark room with room temperature for 20 days. Shake once every 2-3 days.

6. Strain the finished peach tincture through cheesecloth. Squeeze the pulp well (you can use it for desserts and other dishes). Pour the drink into storage bottles and seal tightly.

Away from the sun, the shelf life is up to 5 years. Strength – 31-34%.
