Pierced Fuzzy Navel
4 shots out of 5
I have to say, I can't believe that I have made and tried 91 cocktails so far! It amazes me how many cocktails there actually are out there! I have not been struggling to find a cocktail at all and have received some absolutely wonderful cocktail recipes from a lot of my readers! When I started my blog I made a list of some of the common cocktails that I had heard of, asked some of my friends to tell me their favorite cocktails for me to make on their birthdays and hoped I'd get a bunch of new recipes from all of you. I am well on my way in fulfilling all three of those and trying to divide my cocktails up evenly between them all.
I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5. Like my Fuzzy Navel, this is another good cocktail. The grenadine gives it a little touch of cherry flavor, but does not over power the peach flavor from the peach schnapps. I think if I had to choose, I'd prefer the Fuzzy Navel itself over the Pierced Fuzzy Navel. There's something about a cocktail that has a couple ingredients and when you add grenadine to it.......it kinda gets a syrupy flavor in your mouth after a couple sips. I'm not really fond of that. The amount of grenadine in this cocktail (or at least the little dash I put in) doesn't ruin it by giving you that flavor in your mouth which is good. I am just always a bit apprehensive to add it into such simple cocktails, that's all.
Here is the recipe for a Pierced Fuzzy Navel:
- 1 shot vodka
- 1 shot peach schnapps
- 1 shot orange juice
- dash of grenadine
In a cocktail glass (or bud vase like I used), fill it almost to the top with ice. Add your vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice and stir. Pour your grenadine right down the middle.
