In the summer I crave fresh fruit. Lots and lots of fresh fruit. Yet, it’s also a season of barbecues, patio gatherings, and different fruity drinks and deserts to serve guests – and yourself. 

In the colder months I make a mean Kahula cake that is absolutely perfect for an after-dinner treat. It’s a huge hit with the adults, so I’ll share the recipe and photos the next time I make it.

Boozy Peaches and Cream Parfait is the ideal indulgence after a meal, and with that kick of bourbon or whiskey - this is a great alcoholic dessert for adults.


  • 2 ripe peaches, pitted and sliced into about 8 pieces
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 5 tsp bourbon or whiskey
  • 1 cup granola


  1. In a shallow dish, add peaches and sprinkle with brown sugar and vanilla*; place in fridge and let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Using a stand mixer or electric mixer, add heavy cream, 4 tsp sugar, and bourbon/whiskey to the bowl; whip/beat on high speed. After a few minutes the cream should thicken up and form peaks; set aside
  3. Using your serving bowls or glasses, add a bit of granola to the bottom of each one, then top with about ¼ cup whipped cream, sprinkle more granola, then arrange 4 peaches on the side of each bowl/glass. Top with additional granola and a dot of whipped cream. Serve immediately.


Each parfait will use about ¼ cup of granola.
For a more boozy recipe, add 1 tsp of bourbon to the brown sugar and vanilla when you soak your peaches.

  1. This recipe sounds really great! I have some extra peaches too that I could make it myself!

  2. That recipe sounds and looks delicious! With peaches in season, I need to make this for my family!

  3. This looks great and sounds delicious! I’m not nutty about granola, does it serve a specific purpose or can it just be omitted?

  6. Oh yummy! I am with you, I love fresh fruit in the summer. This recipe looks easy enough for me to try and an excuse to get some more fresh peaches.

  7. The post could’ve been titled, “Boozy (anything)” and I would’ve jumped to read the recipe! In the summer months, it’s so nice to eat a light dessert & this one looks perfect. I really like cream based desserts. And I’d make a couple for the kids without the booze.

  8. I’m not really one for alcohol so I’d probably make this with a reduced amount or perhaps just leave it out altogether for me and only use the alcohol for my guests 🙂

  9. This would be a perfect dessert for a summer BBQ, especially when peaches come into season!

  10. Sounds yummy to me and easy enough to leave out the booze for the kids dishes! Love peaches so I will be trying this out for sure!
