Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


Vodka is the backbone of this cocktail, providing a strong, neutral alcoholic base that allows the flavors of the other ingredients to shine. If you use less, the drink might be too sweet and unbalanced; more, and it could overwhelm the delicate peach and citrus notes. Without it, you lose the 'spirit' of the cocktail.

Peach Schnapps

Peach Schnapps adds a juicy, fruity sweetness, playing off the vodka's neutrality. It brings a summery vibe to the drink. Too much can make the drink overly sweet, while too little might render the peachy kiss nearly undetectable.

Alex Green

Blue Curaçao

Adding a vibrant blue hue and a bitter orange flavor, Blue Curaçao also gives the drink a tropical twist. If omitted, you'd miss the color and an important flavor component. Swap it for Triple Sec or another orange liqueur if you want a lighter color with a similar flavor profile.

Mary Mitkina


Sprite introduces effervescence and a lemon-lime zing, which cuts through the sweetness and lightens the drink. If you add more, it could dilute the drink's strength; less, and the drink might be too strong or sweet. No Sprite could lead to a flat, overly potent cocktail.
