Homemade Peach Syrup for Cocktails and Mocktails 

Homemade Peach Syrup in a bottle.

This easy, homemade peach syrup is the perfect way to celebrate fresh peaches in the summer and enjoy frozen peaches in the winter.

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 ripe fresh peaches, sliced (or 2 cups frozen peach slices)

Instructions

Combine peach slices, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan.

Bring to boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to low heat and simmer, stirring occasionally. Simmer for 5 minutes until the sugar dissolves and the peaches start to break down.

Remove from heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes to bring your syrup to room temperature.

Place a fine mesh strainer over a medium bowl. Carefully pour the mixture into the strainer, stirring the peaches gently to release any liquid.

Discard the cooked peaches or save them to go over vanilla ice cream or french toast.

Cool syrup completely before using. Store in a mason jar or other airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
