It combines the smooth, clean taste of vodka with the sweet and aromatic peach schnapps, which is then balanced with the bright and refreshing zest of orange juice. This drink is typically served in a highball glass, which allows its vibrant orange hue to beckon sippers. The Hairy Navel is generally enjoyed for its easy-drinking nature, making it a popular choice for social gatherings or a casual day out in the sun. Its name adds a playful touch, hinting at a stronger version of the classic Navel cocktails which include various fruity and citrus elements.
