Comments:

This recipe was inspired by the in-season peaches! However if peaches aren’t in season where you’re at, tinned peaches also work quite nicely.

If you’re using tinned peaches, after removing the peaches from the syrup, retain the peach syrup and add a bottle of beer (Lager or other dark beer) to the syrup for a refreshing beverage. Enjoy!
