"Peaches come from a can - They were put there by a man - In a factory downtown..."
Wait. Before we all get swept away in 90's music nostalgia, let's contemplate the peach. It's sweet with that fuzzy skin but the pit? It contains Cyanide. What's the deal with that? How could something so beautiful and so tasty also be so deadly? Nature must be trying to kill us. Anyway...
Fortunately, the Peach Me Cocktail contains no peach pits whatsoever. As a matter of fact, the Peach Me Cocktail contains no peaches at all. What's the deal with that? We don't know, we don't care, let's just get mixin'!
1 maraschino cherry
1 orange slice
3 dashes Angostura orange bitters
2 1/2 ounces bourbon
1/2 ounce peach schnapps
Garnish with an orange slice & maraschino cherry
Muddle the cherry, orange slice and bitters in a shaker or mixing glass. Add the bourbon, schnapps and ice.
Stir until well-chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over a ice. Garnish with a fresh orange slice and maraschino cherry.
