When you hear “Fuzzy Navel”, a yummy cocktail may not be the first thing that comes to mind. While its name isn’t necessarily the most appetizing, the Fuzzy Navel is a classic highball cocktail that is fruity and sweet and contains just two ingredients. The peachy delight is composed of orange juice and peach schnapps and can be enjoyed any time of the day. The name fits the ingredients of the drink and hints at its ingredients, fuzzy referencing the peach schnapps (peach fuzz) and navel the orange juice.

The sweet duo made its debut in the 1980s to market peach schnapps in a cocktail slightly sweeter and less boozy than the established Screwdriver, which is composed of vodka and orange juice. It’s a refreshing cocktail that is perfect for relaxing at home or casual entertaining.
