Peach Cordial

Recipe by Mean Mary

Now that peach season is here, make some of this delicious cordial to save for when the cooler temps come along. This will also make great gifts. After straining off the cordial itself, do not dump the peaches. Pick out the flavoring spices and run through a food mill or blender and serve over ice cream. Please note that the cooking time is the time it takes for the peaches to flavor the vodka.

I am surprised that your mayonnaise jars did not explode given that there are gases that build up and need to be vented. I used a brewing carboy with an airlock. I added the spices as noted. Waiting to see how it tastes in another month.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a gallon glass mayonnaise jar, or other type of crock that can be sealed completely, mix all the ingredients and seal with electrical or duct tape so no aid can get in or liquid can evaporate. Shake gently twice a day until the sugar is dissolved (generally takes 2-3 days) then about every other day so that the mixture is evenly flavored. Now the hard part -- Let sit, for 2 months. Then strain through 4 layers of cheesecloth in a colander. After sediment has settled, siphon off the clear cordial mixture and decant. This is really smooth and friends are still asking if I have the recipe. I hope that you enjoy it.
