Bayou Cocktail Recipe

There are a few different cocktail recipes by the name Bayou, or something similar. This version has an unusual main ingredient – peach juice.

A lot of cocktails use peach schnapps or Southern Comfort (which is a peachy liqueur). But peach juice as an ingredient isn’t that common.

This juice is what gives the Bayou recipe a fresh, smooth fruit taste that’s different from the usual citrus or pineapple juice mixers. It’s sweet, but the lime juice cuts the sweetness.

No need for an expensive cognac. A nice drinkable one will do. Try the Bayou cocktail as an after dinner drink – it’s not too sweet, not too tart, just right for relaxing after a good meal.

Yield: 1 drink
