Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small saucepan, add water, sugar, and nectarines. Cook covering on medium heat until nectarines are very soft.
2
Pour into a blender and give a quick blend so that there are pieces of fruit vaguely present. Pour back into sauce pan.

Add the rest of the ingredients, save the Knox's. Continue to cook on low, stirring occasionally. Only cook for as long is your preference for the strength of whiskey.

Turn heat up to a boil. This may cause bubbling and spitting, use caution.
