I've been trying to think of alternate titles for this video because it's one of my favorite things to do. I named my first live television appearance 'The time I touched food with my bare hands and then handed it to someone to eat...live on air. LIVE.' You can see it here.
For this video, the only alternative title I've come up with is "The time I said 4 shots and ended up pouring a fifth of bourbon for two people. ONE FIFTH. For.two.people.'
You will be having a good night after making this cocktail. Maybe you should use a shot glass and get a more accurate measurement of one shot? Maybe not.
Maybe get drunk on your back porch, and have a lengthy discussion about whether or not your all-natural lemongrass oil deodorant is keeping the mosquitos away (arms flailing for demonstration!) or if citronella candles are necessary? Your call.
I'm just saying, when two people share a fifth of bourbon, big things get discussed in life. BIG. I'm also saying: measure better than I did.
A few more words: shake the cocktail for much longer than I did in the video. It takes a special kind of confidence to shake things on camera. Lucky for you, I've got oodles of it.
But seriously, if you don't shake it harder and longer than I did, the peach jam will sadly sit at the bottom of the glass. Then, all you're looking at is bourbon on the rocks. One fifth---err, we already covered that.
Be safe, friends!
PS I love you to the moon and back.

Love the video but I thought 'I' invented the use of jam in cocktails! :) Seriously I've been using jam for a while; it's a great way to not only make it simple but to be able to use fruits that aren't in season. My favorite is a recipe for cherry preserves, tequila and ginger beer. But I admit I love peach and bourbon and I do have to give this a whirl!

I am loving your videos. I am making videos too and they are so much fun. You rock!
Christina: I don't normally post comments, but I've been SO enjoying your blog and this video was absolutely fantastic. I tried this recipe and couldn't find ANY peach jam at my grocery store so I used blackberry instead. And woah... just thought I'd let you know that although the drink turned a bit purple, it tasted so good! Thanks for your creativity!
