  • Who would like it?

    If you're a fan of sweet, fruity cocktails with a kick, this is the drink for you. It's also perfect for those who enjoy themed cocktails or are fans of the Alice In Wonderland story.

How Alice In Wonderland Tastes?

The Alice In Wonderland cocktail is a delightful blend of sweet, sour, and fruity flavors. The amaretto gives it a sweet, nutty taste, while the peach schnapps adds a fruity punch. The sour mix balances out the sweetness, and the southern comfort adds a smooth, whiskey-like finish.

Interesting facts about Alice In Wonderland

  • The Alice In Wonderland cocktail is named after the classic Lewis Carroll novel.
  • Despite its sweet and fruity taste, it's a strong cocktail with a high alcohol content.
  • It's often served in a highball glass, garnished with a cherry or a slice of lemon.


Amaretto (1 oz)

The sweet, almond-like flavor from amaretto enhances the cocktail with warmth and depth. Too much and it'll overpower the drink, too little and you’d miss out on the lush nuttiness. Without it, your drink loses its enchanting 'marzipan' profile. Frangelico could be a hazelnut-flavored alternative, adding a different nutty twist.

Peach Schnapps (1 oz)

Peach Schnapps gives a fruit-forward sweetness, crucial for that wonderland magic. It balances the sour mix and gives the cocktail a summery vibe. If omitted, you'd lose a layer of flavor complexity. An alternative like apricot brandy would bring a similar stone-fruit charm but with a little more kick.

Sour Mix (1 oz)

This is the cocktail’s source of bright, tangy acidity that cuts through the sweetness, giving it balance and zest. Too much can be puckering, too little makes the cocktail cloying. No sour mix? Try a homemade concoction of lemon juice and simple syrup for a similar effect.

Mary Mitkina

Southern Comfort (1 oz)

A smooth whiskey liqueur with hints of fruit and spice, Southern Comfort plays a supporting role, adding a little Southern soul to this whimsical mix. Not including it would make the cocktail less complex. Bourbon could substitute for a bolder whiskey presence.

Garnish: Cherry or Lemon Slice

A cherry adds a touch of elegance and a hint of additional fruitiness. The lemon slice not only decorates but also infuses subtle citrus notes which can be squeezed in for an extra zing. Both embody the playful essence of Alice's adventure.

Rosemary's Wonderland

Add a sprig of rosemary along with the other ingredients in the shaker. This herbal infusion provides an aromatic, earthy contrast that deepens the whimsy. The rosemary’s piney scent would make you think of the forbidden forest Alice might have stumbled upon!

Tipsy Hatter

Replace Sour Mix with fresh lemon juice and add a teaspoon of honey. This will result in a less artificial and more refined tartness. It's akin to tea time with the Mad Hatter, but with lemon and honey for a sophisticated edge.

Cheshire's Grin

Infuse the amaretto with Earl Grey tea leaves for an hour before making the cocktail. Strain before use. This twist adds a Bergamot twist–a nod to the British origins of Alice’s tale. Every sip would feel like uncovering another riddle!

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
