Fuzzy Wuzzy

One evening in the lab, the Vultures were discussing trendy drinks of the past and just tossing some names around. When we got to the Fuzzy Navel, silence reigned and then one of us said:

“That was a damned good drink. Let’s make one now.”

There are a lot of products available lately with fake flavoring and hideous colors and your Vultures are happy to rake them over the coals. But peach schnapps and peach liqueur have always been reliable, inexpensive ingredients. Peach is one of those flavors that remains bright and fresh-tasting even when some artificiality is involved. Enjoy your peachy cocktails in their many variations, and try this pretty new one we’ve created for you.

To an iced shaker, add:

2 ounces vodka
3/4 ounce cranberry syrup
1 ounce freshly-squeezed orange juice
1/2 ounce peach schnapps or liqueur (our favorite: https://www.stirrings.com/real-products/liqueurs/peach)

Shake vigorously and pour unstrained into glass. Garnish with orange wedge and add a straw.

Cranberry Syrup

To a saucepan, add:

2 cups fresh cranberries
3/4 to 1 cup light brown sugar
Water to cover berries

Keep stirring over medium heat until the cranberries start popping their skins. Remove from heat and let stand to cool. Strain and bottle. Store in refrigerator up to 5 days.
