Discover the Magic of Peach Schnapps in Spring Cocktails
When the flowers start blooming, it’s always a good signal that it’s the season for enjoying a refreshing, vibrant cocktail. And while you may not think of it as a spring drink, peach schnapps might just be the ingredient that you’ve been missing all along in your repertoire for these months of the year. You may not be convinced, and that’s fine because below we’re going to explain why peach schnapps, the beach cocktail stalwart, can be the star of your cocktail collection as the nights draw in. As you’ll see, there’s plenty of space for it!
The simple versatility of Peach Schnapps is not lost on anyone who has tried it. It can be gently added to OJ to cut across the acidity of the citrus juice or mixed with sparkling lemonade to create a fizzy sweet combination that is always drinkable. Bringing the essence of sun-ripened peaches, Steinbok’s Peach Schnapps is recognised for its premium quality, so every sip takes you into the heart of a sun-soaked orchard – even when it’s blowing a gale outside.
In truth, there is almost no bad way to drink a peach schnapps cocktail – it enlivens any other drink it touches. And that’s why, while it’s a key component in all the summer’s tastiest cocktails, it will always be welcome in the best spring drinks too. There is no bad time to drink peach schnapps, either. It’s the perfect enhancement for cocktails, whenever, wherever and whatever those cocktails may be.
Butterscotch and Peach: A Match Made in Heaven
If you’ve ever experienced the taste of butterscotch schnapps, you’ll have been delighted with a rich, warm taste that’s genuinely inimitable. It may or may not have occurred to you to pair it with peach – but if you haven’t tried it before, you’re surely thinking about it now. The buttery taste of one intertwining with the fruity undertones of the other is a taste sensation that underpins some of the finest seasonal cocktails. Steinbok’s butterscotch and peach schnapps can be the base for the most comforting cocktails you sip this Spring.
While this combo is quite possibly tasty enough for you to drink as-is, it can also make a Spring cocktail that little bit more indulgent. There are plenty of ideas out there for peach and butterscotch schnapps cocktails you can make, or you can take control and create something of your own to make this Spring a little sweeter!
Classic peach schnapps cocktails for Spring
