3.5 shots out of 5
Was feeling creative today and it seems that my peach puree has been neglected lately, so I thought I'd try my hardest to make something with it today. I have to say that this peach puree is a hard one to work with for me. It doesn't have as strong of a flavor as some of those other purees, so I feel like I should be adding a LOT of shots of it to my recipes.......which doesn't work when you have one cocktail glass to fit it in.
I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5. I wasn't terribly happy that it didn't have a bigger peach taste, but it is what it is. I figured adding the peach schnapps would help, and it defiantly did. The cocktail over all isn't horrible (which might be the way it sounds?), it has a good flavor and I am happy drinking it. I will still try to figure out a way (which maybe adding actual peaches themselves would work) to make a frozen cocktail taste more peachy, but for now, this one will do.
Here is the recipe for a Peach Freeze:
- 1 1/2 shots rum
- 1 1/2 shot peach puree
- 1/2 shot peach schnapps
- 1/2 shot sweet & sour mix
In a blender add a cup of ice, rum, peach puree, peach schnapps and sweet & sour mix. Blend it up until the ice is completely gone. Pour and enjoy!
