Here is what you need to do:
Step 1: pick fresh, ripe fruit (peach is my favourite)
Step 2: chop fruit, removing any pits
Step 3: add moonshine (or everclear) and water. Approximately 1 lb fruit to every 1.5 cup moonshine (or everclear), plus 1.5 cups of distilled water
Step 4: Mix fruit, moonshine, and water in a sealed, sterile glass and let sit for 4 weeks.
Step 5: Strain out fruit.
Step 6 (Optional): Add 1 ¼ cups white granulated sugar. Seal again and leave in a cool dark place for 3 months.
Step 7: ENJOY! American schnapps is most often enjoyed mixed.
Technically, the American version is actually a liqueur because of the added sugar, glycerin , and artificial flavouring, but it still produces an easy and delicious schnapps!
