Servings 1 1/2 cups


  • 1 ½ cups dried apricots halved the long way (they stay pretty that way)
  • 2 cups good quality bourbon I used Bulleit
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar more or less depending on how sweet you want it
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • Corn syrup
  • Poppy seeds


  • Put the apricots on the bottom of a mason jar and pour the bourbon in, along with the brown sugar and cinnamon sticks.
  • Close the lid tightly and shake to mix up. Let rest in a dark, cool place for 4-7 days, shaking daily to mix flavors. I let mine infuse for a full week; the longer you wait the stronger the flavor will be.
  • Strain the bourbon, and serve over ice. To line the jar’s rim, dip in corn syrup and then rip in poppy seeds (before filling with liquor!) Store infused bourbon in a cool, dark place and refrigerate leftover infused apricots in sealed container for up to two weeks.
