Vanilla Peach Fizz is the perfect summer drink, made with fresh flavorful peaches and homemade vanilla-infused bourbon. So refreshing and so delicious!
Two of our dear friends are getting married this year, and we are very excited and cannot wait to celebrate with them. So when I had the chance to write a sponsored post for Urban Farmhouse Tampa, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to promote their personalized wedding gifts by ordering a custom gift for our friends. And what better excuse to create a delicious summer drink to go with the custom gift!
I ordered a flask and two beautiful glasses personalized with their names and wedding date. Obviously this is not the wedding gift, but it is still a really nice gift to receive, especially because the flask will be full of homemade vanilla bean infused bourbon. It's probably bad luck to give an empty flask, right? 😉

This is not a hide-in-your-purse flask (I'm classy, I know!). It is a beautiful large flask made for proudly displaying on your counter. And it is also perfect for infusing liquors!
I used a vanilla bean to make a homemade vanilla infused bourbon. If you want to play around with other flavors, you can try using orange rinds, rosemary sprigs, cloves and cinnamon sticks would also make a delicious infused liquor. The flask has a lid that seals nicely so your liquor won't lose the infused flavor quickly.
I am usually not a fan of bourbon/whiskey/scotch drinks, but vanilla-infused bourbon was just so delicious!! The vanilla bean totally took the yuckiness out of the bourbon. After I made our drinks, I topped off the flask with more bourbon and let it continue infusing so that we can give our friends a really flavorful gift. 🙂

For this Vanilla Peach Fizz, I used a mojito muddler to muddle a small peach in a cocktail shaker until it became a puree. To that I added the vanilla infused bourbon, seltzer, and agave syrup. Shake it up, strain, and serve over ice! It is such an easy drink to make, and did I mention it is delicious?
I love that this Vanilla Peach Fizz uses fresh peaches to get that fruity flavor into the cocktail. None of that peach schnapps business! I mean, there is a time and a place for peach schnapps (10 years ago, college, lol), but if you want a cocktail that is bursting with fresh summer flavor, you need to use the real fruit. It is so easy to make these Vanilla Peach Fizz cocktails, so why not go the extra step and muddle up some fresh, juicy peaches?
