Cuban Peach

It was Z’s turn to make a drink again so he went looking through the cabinet to see what was in abundance. He found a mostly full bottle of peach schnapps and the internet provided the following modern cocktail — although there were  no readily findable facts or histories. That night we had mixed up two different sourdough bread recipes and settled in for taste testing with this yummy cocktail.


  • 1 ½ oz light rum
  • 1 ½ oz peach schnapps
  • ½ oz lime juice
  • dash of simple syrup
  • lemon wheel to garnish

Shake vigorously, strain into a chilled glass. Use a mint sprig to garnish (we went without).

The verdict: a nice refreshing drink that will be good to try again in the summer. We liked it— a bunch of thumbs up!
