So, for a bit, the road diverges – and I find myself with a couple of pineapple drinks and a couple of peachy drinks. I plan to close up the month with one last peach/pineapple combo drink. So, which to do first? Well, at the suggestion of a friend, we’re going with peach first.
This one is the Gilligan’s Island. (Here is the recipe I used.) I vaguely remember catching re-runs of the show in the late 70s. I did not become a big fan of the show – but I see myself becoming a big fan of this drink.
This doesn’t have a lot of liquor in it – it has a lot of juice. This would be a good one to sip on all day at the beach – if I didn’t have to drive or take care of kids. Oh well, it is still delicious and delightful…a “Calgon take me away” sort of drink while the kids run around screaming and I escape to my happy place. Sigh.
Okay…so start with a ice-filled shaker. Pour in 1 oz vodka, 1 oz peach schnapps, 3 oz orange juice, and 3 oz cranberry juice. Shake and pour, ice and all, into a glass. Garnish it with a cherry (or two), slice of pineapple, or a little drink umbrella. Sip and enjoy!
