Fuzzy Monkey

The Fuzzy Monkey is a fruity little shot – mostly orange juice, but there are also some peach and banana notes. The overall effect is a slightly mellowed orange.

Fuzzy Monkey drink in cordial glass

The neat thing about this shooter is that it’s not hard-liquor based. The small amount of vodka is overwhelmed by the fruit juice and liqueurs, making it a very smooth little drink. It’s almost more like a cordial than a traditional shot, and in fact that’s not a bad way to serve it.


  • 3/4 ounce vodka
  • 3/4 ounce peach schnapps
  • 3/4 ounce Creme de Banane
  • 1-1/2 ounces orange juice

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the ingredients. Shake until chilled, and strain into a shot glass.
