There's a meaning behind the saying "sweet, sweet summertime," and we think peaches are the reason for the season's high anticipation.
Nearly two hours west of our hometown sits a small city in the Hill Country named Fredericksburg that's home to some of the best Texas peaches you've ever set your eyes on. These juicy fruits thrive in the summertime, making it both a great poolside snack and the perfect candidate for a Tito's Handmade Vodka infusion.
Making the peach infusion is, as they say, peaches and cream. Just add the fresh peaches, let them sit in vodka for a few days, and pop the infusion in the freezer so it will stay fresh, chilled, and ready to be mixed into any classic Tito's cocktail.
If you can't drive the distance to grab a basket filled with these stone fruits, check out your local farmers’ market for an array of fresh fruits that are in season in your area. Pro-Tip: Freezing your sliced peaches for a few minutes before adding them to the infusion will allow the vodka to really draw out the flavor.
See our recipe below:
Add some sliced peaches to your bottle of Tito's Handmade Vodka and infuse your cocktails with a little summer flavor! Keep it local and find fresh peaches at a farmer's market in your area, or make the drive to Fredericksburg, Texas for their legendary produce.

Slice peaches to equal one cup.
Pro-Tip: We recommend freezing your sliced peaches for a few minutes before infusing to add a little extra flavor.
Add peaches to a glass container and let sit for 4 to 6 days.
After infusing, remove the peaches, and store in your freezer to keep it fresh.
