2 pounds peaches
4 Lemon peel strips, scraped
1 Cinnamon stick
¼ cup + 2 Tablespoons sugar
¼ cup water
Remove the stones from the peaches but cutting around the diameter then twisting the halves apart. Cut into ¼ inch slices and add to a ½ gallon glass container. Add lemon peels, cinnamon and vodka, close lid tightly and give it a shake.
Stir the mixture daily and strain out the peaches after one week. This can be done using a cheesecloth placed in a colander. Discard the peaches.
In a small saucepan whisk together the sugar and water constantly over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Stir it into the peach vodka mixture. Bottle and age at least two weeks so the liqueur gets a chance to mellow out. Store the bottle in the freezer and enjoy cold for best results.
