Peach Freeze Cocktail

Day 60


Peach Freeze
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!


Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to finding a more peachy frozen cocktail in the future.  And a BIG cheers to my 60th day of my Year Of Cocktails Blog!!  I'm enjoying this a whole lot!  I feel a lot more experienced in the world of cocktails now then I did when I started this blog!

Cheers!

  2. I didn't feel like breaking out the blender, so I made this one on the rocks. Tasty, and quite sweet - I think I'd give it 3.5 shots, and break out the blender next time :)

    1. I'm glad to see that you're getting right to your puree!! How fun! I picked up a couple more flavors the other day too. I'll have to try them some time soon! =)
