Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


The 1.5 oz of vodka is the backbone of the cocktail, providing a neutral base that allows the fruity flavors to shine. Too much, and you'll be walking sideways; too little, and it's just adult fruit juice. If you omit vodka, well, you just can't— think of it as the party's VIP guest. An alternative? Try white rum for a more tropical twist.

Peach Schnapps

The 1 oz of peach schnapps adds a sweet, peachy personality—it's the life of the cocktail party. Use too much and you're in a peach-only soiree; not enough and the other flavors overshadow it. No schnapps? Triple sec could step in, but expect a less peachy, more citrusy profile.

Pineapple Juice

2 oz of pineapple juice brings tropical vacation vibes right into the glass. It gives the drink a fruity sharpness that’ll make your taste buds feel like they're sunbathing. Less pineapple juice makes a less vibrant getaway, more and you may as well be drinking breakfast juice. Mango juice could sub in for an exotic tweak.

Cranberry Juice

The 2 oz of cranberry juice adds a tart, sassy counterpoint to the sweet notes, creating a balance that's as perfect as your favorite song. Too tart, and it's like that one hit wonder that just won't quit; too little, and it’s lost in the mixtape. Substitute with pomegranate juice for an equally tart but richer experience.

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.
