What Is Peach Schnapps?
Peach schnapps is your go-to for adding juicy peach goodness to cocktails and shots. Here we will cover all your questions about this fruity yet versatile liqueur.
Is Peach Schnapps Alcohol?
Peach schnapps is a liqueur made from peaches and sugar distilled with a neutral grain base spirit. Schnapps may be derived from various fruits, but peach is the most popular flavor.
Peach schnapps is equally delicious chilled or at room temperature. While a bit cloying consumed alone, the liqueur may be mixed into an assortment of cocktails, including the famed Sex on the Beach drink.
Peach Schnapps Alcohol Content
On average, peach schnapps contains roughly 20 percent alcohol.
How to Store Peach Schnapps
Unopened and opened peach schnapps should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct heat or sunlight.
Once opened, keep the bottle shut tightly to minimize air exposure, and keep it refrigerated if you want to serve it cold.
Does Peach Schnapps Go Bad?
Like other liqueurs, unopened peach schnapps has virtually indefinite shelf life when properly stored.
After opening a bottle, enjoy it as soon as you detect any unusual colors, aromas, or tastes. These telltale signs of degradation usually appear within a year of opening.
Where to Buy Peach Schnapps
You can snag a bottle anywhere liquor is sold, including your local grocer or liquor store. Peach schnapps is stocked alongside the liqueurs and cordials.
How Much Is Peach Schnapps?
Peach schnapps is an inexpensive cocktail staple. A bottle will run you about $10, although premium brands can cost a bit more.
Peach Schnapps Calories
Common brands of peach schnapps contain anywhere from 50 to 70 calories.
Is Peach Schnapps Gluten-Free?
Yes! Peach schnapps is a liqueur with no ingredients containing gluten.
Is Peach Schnapps Vegan?
Yes! Schnapps, including the peach variety, are generally not made with animal products.
How Many Carbs Are in Peach Schnapps?
There are about 7 grams of carbs per ounce of peach schnapps.
Peach Schnapps Substitutes
These peach schnapps replacements cover a range of cocktail styles and flavor profiles.
Many peach brandies feature notes of vanilla and warm spice that elevate cocktails beyond flavoring them with fruit. Keep in mind that brandy has a higher alcohol content.
Apricot is similarly flavored to peach, so apricot brandy also functions as a replacement for peach schnapps.
Peach-flavored vodka is a natural substitute for peach schnapps. After all, the liqueur is frequently used alongside vodka.
Peach juice is the only non-alcoholic option on this list. Use peach juice instead of peach schnapps when you want to tone down the alcohol content while still infusing drinks with a burst of peach.
Peach Liqueur vs. Peach Schnapps
Peach schnapps belongs to the peach liqueur family, the range of peach-flavored spirits that includes peach brandy and creme de Peche. The difference between the two is that peach schnapps combines peaches and sugar with a neutral grain base spirit, whereas the flavorings in liqueurs are added after distillation.
Peach Schnapps Drinks
The straightforward peachiness of peach schnapps makes it a great complement to lighter-colored base spirits such as vodka, tequila, and gin.
Contemporary cocktail recipes also often pair the peach schnapps liqueur with whiskey; bourbon and peach, for instance, are a Southern flavor combination.
Garnish with fresh peach slices for a great look.
Feel free to whip up these delights for your next summer cocktail party.
