What Is Peach Schnapps? 

Peach schnapps is a liqueur – a liquor that has added seasoning and flavors. A liquor, which just sounds like a less-fancy way of saying liqueur, is a distilled drink such as gin or vodka.

There are several different forms of schnapps, which is what makes it so versatile for cocktails and mixed drinks.

Peach schnapps is made of distilled peaches and rectified grain spirit, as well as a significant amount of sugar and glycerin to give it that distinctive syrup texture. It is the perfect flavor for making a drink feel like summer – refreshing and fruity, and sometimes with a retro twist.

Though peach schnapps is sweet and very easy to drink, it is surprisingly strong with an alcohol content of between 15-20%. Mixing with other liquors can be a tasty way to feel the effects quickly without knowing it.

Sometimes, simply drinking peach schnapps with lemonade can be a bit sickly and can get boring quickly. Don’t fret, because this versatile liqueur is ideal for making cocktails at home!

Peach Schnapps Mixed Drink Recipes 

Bear in mind that some of these drinks require a cocktail shaker or a food processor!

Woo Woo


  • 1.5 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 1.5 oz Vodka
  • 3.5 oz Cranberry Juice
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Ice
  • Lime Slice

If you have a cocktail shaker, fill it with ice and all of the liquids and shake until it’s all mixed together. Without a cocktail shaker, pour all of the liquids into a tall glass with the ice and stir it all up.

Garnish the drink with a wedge of lime (and a tiny umbrella if you’re feeling really fancy).

Sex on the Beach


  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 2 oz Cranberry Juice
  • 2 oz Orange Juice or Pineapple Juice
  • Ice

One of the most popular cocktails, Sex on the Beach is perfect for summer.

It’s super easy to make, too – simply pour the vodka and peach schnapps over the ice in a tall glass and top it with the orange juice and cranberry juice.

If you have a cocktail shaker, the same rules apply. Garnish with a cherry or lemon slice – or a tiny umbrella – and you’re basically at the beach!

Simply mix all of the ingredients in a tall glass filled with ice and finish it off with a splash of lemon-lime soda for a refreshing alcoholic beverage.

Gummy Bear Martini

Then add the ice cubes and blend until it is smooth again. The name for this mixed drink is a bit odd, considering it doesn’t actually taste very festive, but it’s a lovely blended mix of sweetness that is refreshing and tasty.

Kiss on the lips


  • 1.5 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 6 oz Frozen Mango Mix
  • 1 tbsp Grenadine Syrup
