The DK

“The DK” originated from the Peach Tart.

Peach Tart:

  • 30 ml peach schnapps
  • 15 ml fresh lime juice

Stir schnapps and lime juice together with ice, then strain into a chilled shot glass.

The book had a picture that looked like this

How can a clear liqueur and lime look like that? Anyway, let’s just forget about how that is possible.

And this is what we made

Peach Tart I made

I found that the lime really bought out the peach flavour of the schnapps and dissipated the overpowering taste that you usually get when drinking cheap peach schnapps by itself. I also like things sour, so the more lime, the better. As delicious as this was, I wanted something that could last a bit longer than just a shot. So what could be better than adding some vodka and lemonade leading to the DK.

The DK

The DK:

  • 30 ml vodka
  • 15 ml peach schnapps
  • 30-60 ml lemonade
  • fresh lime (how ever much you want – I like a quarter of a lime or more)

Fill an old fashioned glass 3/4 way to the top with ice. Add vodka, peach schnapps and top with lemonade. Squeeze lime over the top and stir well.

The DK

I wouldn’t exactly say this is balanced, but damn it is easy to drink. No one I hung around with then was into martinis, negronis and whatnot, rather they enjoyed sickly sweet drinks and so this became my go to drink to serve and still is on many occasions. Since then there have been many other variations including the Green Gummy Bear.
