There’s more than one recipe called a Peach Dream. This one uses cream, which seems most appropriate with peaches. It’s a fun little sweet treat, like something you might have been served at a soda counter in the 1950s, except with alcohol.
Some drinkers might find this drink a little cloying with the use of sweet, syrupy peach nectar. If so, just change the ratios to include more of the peach schnapps or vodka and less of the nectar. For a really fun variation on this drink, leave out the cream, mix everything else together in a shaker, pour or strain it and plonk a small scoop of vanilla ice cream into the drink. Serve it with a spoon so you can eat the ice cream or stir it into the drink, as you prefer.
- 3 ounces peach nectar
- 2 ounces half & half
- 1 ounce peach schnapps
- 1 ounce vodka
Shake the ingredients together with ice, then pour or strain into a highball glass. Ice works for this drink because you can swish it to keep everything stirred if you’re sipping along and because it waters down the rich ingredients. But if you prefer it straight, there you go.
