A Tale Of Cocktails #6

Fuzzy Navel

1 oz vodka
1/2 oz peach Schnapps
4 1/2 oz orange juice
Fruit garnish
Taste: 8        
Look: 6        
Cost: 9         
Name: 8
Prep: 6
Alcohol: 2
Overall: 7

Preparation: Pour everything but the cherry into a cocktail shaker with cracked ice.  Shake, and then pour into a cocktail glass before garnishing.

General Comments: Liking that name.  Apparently, it's there to remind you what needs to go into it.  "Fuzzy" for peach, and "Navel" for orange (apparently, that's a type of orange, or so The Other Half tells me).  Apparently, there's no interest in reminding people about the vodka.  Presumably because it's shite.

Beyond that, this is another one of those tremendously dangerous cocktails that are both very refreshing and difficult to recognise as alcoholic.  In other words, it wins drinks.  Well, it would if it wasn't so weak.  Frankly, though, that might be less of a flaw, and more of a public service.
