This Fuzzy Navel Cocktail is perfect for sipping at brunch, enjoying poolside, or even all weekend long when you’re away on a girl’s trip! It has a sweet, smooth taste that goes down incredibly easy so you know it’ll be a cocktail that everyone will love no matter who you’re enjoying it with!
Cocktails at home can’t possibly get any easier than this Fuzzy Navel, it’s just equal parts peach schnapps and orange juice that’s served over ice in a highball cocktail glass! So no fancy bartending skills are required for this simple drink!
Why Is This Drink Called A Fuzzy Navel?
Wondering why such a delicious drink has such a funny name? Don’t worry I wondered at first too! Fuzzy refers to the small, soft peach hairs (peach fuzz) that you find on peaches and the word navel refers to navel oranges. Makes sense right?
To mix up this Fuzzy Navel Recipe you need just three ingredients! Two if you don’t count the ice!
- Ice – This cocktail is best enjoyed chilled so fill your glass with ice!
- Peach Schnapps – Grab your favorite bottle, I love using Peachtree Schnapps!
- Orange Juice – Fresh squeezed is best! But you could also choose a high-quality brand like Uncle Matt’s or Natalie’s
Once it’s poured into your glass garnish with orange slices or even slices of peaches! If you’re someone that can’t get enough of that peach flavor you could also add in a splash of peach simple syrup!
How To Make A Fuzzy Navel
- Add ice to a highball glass.
- Pour in the peach schnapps and orange juice.
- Stir the cocktail together and garnish with slices of orange.
