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.
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.
