“The DK” originated from the 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
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.
- 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.
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.
