    The old-fashioned is a favorite bourbon cocktail and the simple formula lends itself to new creations. By doing something as simple as switching out the two fruits, you can create an entirely new old-fashioned. That is exactly what happens in this recipe.

    We skip the orange and cherry and opt for peach and blackberry instead. The transformation is simple, but it has a big impact and it's perfect for peach season.

    The name of this fun cocktail is a little deceptive. The "sweet meat" in question is of the peach and pecan variety and the two come together for an interesting beverage.

    Bourbon is the base on which a homemade sweetened pecan peach water is added. Shake those with a few dashes of peach bitters and a surprisingly simple cocktail turns into a tantalizing wonder.
