This is a great summertime adult shake that uses fresh peaches. Frozen peaches can be substituted as well. Serve in fancy glassware and garnish with peach slices.
- 4 ounces Amaretto
- 2 ounces peach schnapps
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream (2 big scoops)
- 3⁄4 ounce lemon juice
- 1 peach, peeled and chopped (save a couple slices for garnish)
- whipped cream (optional)
- Place all the ingredients in a blender with some crushed ice and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a hurricane or daiquiri glass and garnish.
I tried the original recipe and the second time used frozen peaches and no ice. I preferred the second. After reading the other reviews I tweaked this recipe a little more and think I perfected it. I use only 2 oz of the amaretto and 1/4 oz of lemon juice. I eliminated the ice by using eight frozen peach slices. It is a little thick but if you let it sit just a little bit and stir...yum! GREAT summertime frozen drink! Thanks NMS!
QueenKungFu and I made this recipe this past weekend for her visit up here and really liked them! But WHOA, they were strong!! She brought fresh peaches with her but I think I would have preferred frozen as they would have brought a nice slushiness to this recipe without having to use any ice. The peach and almond flavor went really well together! Thanks Cheryl!
I made this exactly as written. Measured out everything in a 1 ounce shot glass. First, six shots of alcohol in one drink!! This is not a drink for lightweights. The one ounce of lemon juice was a bit overpowering. Surprisingly, I tasted the lemon more than the peach flavor, although the amaretto did shine through. The frozen peaches and ice cream made this a nice and frosty drink for a hot summer evening. I think next time I make this I will cut the lemon in half as well as the amaretto.
