Friday’s Feature Cocktail – The Island Breeze

There’s no beating around the palm tree with this one, folks, so I’m just gonna jump right into it today. Our Featured Cocktail for this Friday is the Island Breeze, a perfectly thirst-quenching ode to summer in a tall glass. Here’s the recipe:

Island Breeze:

  • 1 part Hiram Walker Peach Schnapps
  • 1 1/2 parts Malibu Coconut
  • 1 part Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2 part Cranberry Juice

Shake with ice and serve over fresh ice in a tall glass.

This seemed to be the perfect recipe this week, given we are now in the height of summer and, following a Monday holiday, it seems that a lot of people decided to extend their “Out of Office” replies to cover most of this week as well. Yet I’ve felt as busy as ever, so that’s my poor excuse for not posting any updates (though the “vacation” sounds nice right about now, too!).

Peach is an essential ingredient to summer and I’d love to find more uses for it in cocktails over the next few weeks; August as a whole is dedicated as Peach Month, in fact! In the spirit of all those friends and peers of mine still soaking up sun, the Island Breeze is a tribute to you. Or, rather, those of us stuck at home can escape for a while with this cocktail in hand!

Cheers and have a great weekend!
