Recipe Notes

If you don't have time to make your own peach juice, you can buy some at your local supermarket - just be mindful of how sweet the juice is when you're mixing in the rest of the cocktail ingredients 

If the simple syrup is too spicy, you can swap for a more mild pepper - to make the simple syrup spicier, either steep for longer or mix in hotter peppers
