A peach vodka cocktail set to change the game

Peach schnapps breaks out of the bland box with this bold twist on a peach vodka cocktail. Our Black Cherry American Dream is rich, ripe and ready for party action. A super smooth base of EFFEN Black Cherry Vodka sets its confident, intriguing flavor from the outset. Sweet, fruity and with sumptuous undertones of vanilla it perfectly offsets the lighter, zesty notes in the DeKuyper Peachtree.

A directional mix

And the flavor fusion doesn’t end there. Our expert bartenders have added in four extra elements to really dial up the taste intensity of this peach vodka recipe. As peach vodka drinks go this is one lit combo. Revitalizing kicks of refreshing apple juice are undercut by acerbic lemon and a punchy hit of peppery fresh basil. Finished with a cherry flourish on top, this is one mighty mix that demands to be noticed. It’s ready to outshine all the peach schnapps cocktails on the block. No sweat…

Pro Tip

Cocktail Shakers: how to choose and use:

Cocktail shakers are an invaluable tool when you want to mix up drinks containing alcohol, juices, and syrups like our Black Cherry American Dream. They come in two basic styles: a three-piece shaker and a two-piece Boston shaker. Neither are cocktail specific, so it’s really a matter of personal preference.


Follow these six simple steps to shake up the perfect cocktail

1 Pour the ingredients into your chosen shaker

2 Fill the shaker with ice

3 Secure the lid or shaker tin tightly

4 Hold the shaker with both hands (one on each piece) and shake vigorously over your shoulder

5 Shake for a slow count of ten or until the outside of the shaker frosts up

6 Strain your cocktail into a chilled glass. If you’re preparing a cocktail served on the rocks always strain over lots of fresh ice

A cocktail shaker is a must have for creating cocktails with EFFEN vodka.
Shake, stir, sip: enjoy a moment of pure pleasure
