Hairy Navel Cocktail Recipe

The Hairy Navel is a play on words because it’s a stronger version of the drink it stems from, which is the Fuzzy Navel. For those who don’t know, the story of the Fuzzy Navel goes like this: a customer remarked that he could still smell the “fuzz” of the peach schnapps through the orange juice.

When the inventor/bartender Ray Foley looked at the orange, he saw the word “navel” (as in navel orange). The drink adds vodka into the mixed, to make it a legitimate strong drink and a great choice for a refreshing afternoon cocktail. It still has the peach/orange flavor combination that the “navel” drinks are known for.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of vodka
  • 1 ounce of peach schnapps
  • 8 ounces of orange juice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the vodka and peach schnapps into a highball glass filled with ice cubes.
  2. Add orange juice.
  3. Stir until satisfied.

Equipment

  • Highball Glass
  • Ice

As with all vodka cocktails, there is a great way to switch up the cocktail – by using infused vodka flavors to add a flavor that wasn’t there previously. Of course, freshly squeezed orange juice will make for the best possible cocktail. The added peach flavor makes it so that the drink is a great alternative to the screwdriver, which may not be complex enough for those who want some more flavor to their drink. For those who are garnish fans, any citrus fruit of your choice could work.

One great thing about the hairy navel is that it wouldn’t take much to turn it into a punch, which is the perfect solution for an outdoor summer party with many guests. All it takes is adding punch juice while adding the exact amount of liquor that you and your guests are comfortable with. For those who want MORE flavors than just orange and peach, there are two common additions – either soda or lemonade. Of course, one can make the hairy navel just as “hairy” (strong) as they want.
