Peach Schnapps (0.25 oz)

A touch of peach schnapps adds a fruity sweetness that evokes the joy of summer orchards. It's not a drink for serious faces. It's all about the sweet romance! If you skip it, you'll miss out on the 'peach' in your 'Peach Bomb,' and that would be downright peachy-keen tragic.

Emma Rose

Crown Royal Canadian Whisky (0.75 oz)

This whisky isn't just any ol' whisky; it's the velvet robe of liquors. With its smoothness and hint of vanilla, it adds a royal touch to your cocktail. Too much, and your drink becomes a whisky with a hint of peach, too little and your peach is looking for its crown.

Alex Green

Energy Drink (8 oz)

The life of the party, the spark, the firecracker! This fizzy funster wakes up the other ingredients and gives the Peach Bomb its explosive character. Without it, it's not a bomb; it's just a peachy puddle.
