It combines the sweetness of peach schnapps with the tartness of blackcurrant cordial, and is smoothed out with the depth and warmth of whiskey. Served chilled in a lowball glass, this cocktail is typically topped up with lemonade, which adds a fizzy, refreshing dimension to the drink. The resulting flavor profile is one of sweet and sour notes, balanced with the complexity of whiskey undertones. The inclusion of a lime garnish brings a zesty finish to this colorful, mixed beverage.
