Peach-Pecan Whiskey Milkshake

We usually have a few jars of infused alcohols hidden in the back of our kitchen shelves. The idea of home infusion might sound intimidating but it really is one of the easiest and very hands-off projects you can have going in your kitchen. I started the pecan whiskey about 5 days before it was ready to use. To infuse, I took about 1 1/2 cups of pecans and dropped them into the bottom of a clean, empty jar of bourbon and poured a new bottle of bourbon (750ml) into it. I put the lid back on, gave it a vigorous shake and placed it out of the sunlight. When I would walk by the bottle I would give it another shake and maybe a taste, if I remembered. I did this for a few days until I noticed the whiskey had picked up a nice, pecan flavor.
