  • 2 peaches pitted and sliced (I sliced into tomato like slices, but any style will work:)
  • 6 slices whole milk mozzarella
  • 6 large leaves fresh basil
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup bourbon or honey bourbon such as Wild Turkey American Honey
  • 2 tablespoons honey if not using the honey bourbon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • In a small sauce pan, bring the balsamic, sugar, and bourbon to a boil (plus honey if not using the honey bourbon). Reduce to a simmer and allow to simmer until reduced by half. It will become a syrupy consistency. Simmer for at least 15 minutes.
  • While balsamic is reducing, heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add peaches and cook on each side until extra tender and juicy; about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • To assemble your stacks, start with a peach slice, then mozzarella, the basil. Repeat three times.
  • Top with the Honey Bourbon Balsamic Reduction.
  • Enjoy!
