Begin by preparing the frozen peaches. Take the slices of peach and lay them out on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Place in the freezer for around 3 hours until the peaches have frozen through

  • 4 peaches, stones removed and sliced into wedges

Meanwhile, prepare the five-spice syrup. Add all of the whole spices along with the water and sugar to a pot over a medium heat. Bring to a simmer then turn off the heat, allowing the syrup to infuse with the flavours of the spices as it cools


Next, prepare the glasses by mixing together the ground Chinese five-spice, salt and sugar on a small plate


Take the lime wedge and cut a small notch in the flesh, then drag it over the rim of each glass. Dip each glass into the spice mix to coat the rim. Set aside until serving


To make the cocktail base, combine the bourbon, 150 ml five-spice syrup and lime juice in a cocktail shaker along with a handful of ice. Shake well


Fill each of the rimmed cocktail glasses with ice. Strain the cocktail base over the glasses, dividing it evenly between all four

  • 1 handful of crushed ice, plus more as needed to fill the glasses
