Cocktail of the Night: Peach Schnapps

(I have a new logo planned, but I haven’t had a chance to make it).

I was trying to use up my bottle of peach schnapps.

I wanted to start with something that was mostly not alcohol, because I’d be having it with dinner and booze on an empty stomach = means not happy.

So…

Pour all of the ingredients into an ice-filled Highball glass; stir briefly. (Because I felt silly, I used the light-up glass and cubes that I got free.)

Yeah, it’s a girly drink standard. Orange and peach go well together. How is it?

Eh, nothing special. If you have cranberry juice, go with a Sex on the Beach or a Woo-woo instead. (I am unfortunately out of cranberry juice.) It’s not going to knock you on your ass. It’s a very girly drink, and there’s nothing wrong with that if that’s what you want.

How much did it affect me? Not much at all.

Drink 2: Hudson

Found the recipe online, so no picture.

1/2 oz Gin
1 oz Peach Schnapps

This is nice. Has that good gin burn with a peach aftertaste.

Actually, the peach is a little buried. If I wanted to be on the floor, I’d try this again with an oz of each. It kind of coats your mouth so you get burny everywhere. Very nice.

And now I’m getting buzzed (and by buzzed, I mean sleepy).
