A Delightful Twist on Peach Cobbler

Peach Moonshine at Wedding | Bespoken www.bespokenweddings.com

So it's National Peach Cobbler Day (who knew that was a thing?), and instead of sharing a traditional Peach Cobbler recipe with you today in honor of this glorious fruit, I found a delicious recipe with a twist.

With some blackberries and a hint of bourbon thrown in, this is not your average Peach Cobbler recipe. It's a great recipe for a spring or summer dinner party or barbecue. Or just because you want something sweet. Enjoy!
