Fuzzy Navel

A classic out of the late 20th century, the Fuzzy Navel (orange) is a bit of a pun for a name and kicks off many other peach and "fuzz" themed cocktails using peach schnapps. For all the silliness, the drink has aged well despite that most bars and bartenders shy away from doing this dinosaur. That may be because experienced drinkers taste peach schnapps (a liqueur that even gets bashed in The Walking Dead series) and they reject it out of hand. New drinkers will welcome it as pleasant. 

I can see that a nice peach brandy could up the game of this oldie but goodie.
  • 2 oz. vodka 
  • 1 oz. peach schnapps
  • 8 oz. orange juice
  • orange slice
Combine vodka and schnapps in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass full of ice. Top with cold orange juice, stir,  and garnish with an orange slice
