In Honor Of National Peaches & Cream Day: Drunken Peaches & Cream

Leave it to us to discover that June 21st is National Peaches and Cream Day. But we aren't talking about the song from 112 no, not hardly. Today is a holiday in honor of Georgia's beloved Peach and the best sidekick it has ever known, fresh whipped Cream.
But what would it be if we didn't add a bit of sprucing up in the form a few ounces of delicious Bourbon?
This recipe is great dessert that is light and fluffy and wont leave you needing a nap when you are finished.
