A grown-up popsicle thats packed with flavor!
Place water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat and stir until sugar dissolves.
Peel and slice peaches. Use a potato masher to crush the peaches. Combine crushed peaches and bourbon in a bowl, mix to combine. Add the simple syrup in slowly and taste to preference. Add yogurt to bourbon peach mixture and combine.
Score top edge of Dixie cup with scissors for easy peeling. Pour mixture into Dixie cups.
Freeze for two hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Continue to freeze until mixture is completely frozen into a popsicle, about 5-6 hours. Peel off Dixie cups. Serve.
**Use the simple syrup sparingly. Taste the mixture as you mix to make sure its to your liking. Use more for a sweeter tasting popsicle and less for a popsicle that will have a stronger bourbon flavor.**
