Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


  • The 1.5 oz of vodka provides the alcoholic backbone of the cocktail without overwhelming the other flavors. It's a neutral spirit that lets the fruity flavors shine. Too much vodka and you risk a booze cruise to Hangoverville; too little and it's a one-way ticket to Dullsville.

Peach Schnapps

  • Now for the peachy goodness. Peach schnapps adds a sweet, fruity flavor that's essential to the signature taste of this drink. Subtract it and you're losing the ray of sunshine in the name of Scotty's beam. Swap it out for apricot liqueur, and you’ll get a slightly more tart sibling.

Blue Curacao

  • Blue Curacao is the life of the party, giving our cocktail that cosmic blue hue. It also adds a subtle orange flavor that dances well with the vodka and peach schnapps. If Tardis blue isn’t your style, try a dash of Triple Sec for an incognito version of the cocktail.

Sour Mix

  • Finally, we can't forget about the sour mix. It's the yang to the sweet yin, creating a taste balance that makes your taste buds go 'Whoa, Scotty!' Too much and you'll pucker more than kissing your Aunt Edna; too little and the sweetness might just propel you into warp speed without any brakes.
