Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Elevated Fuzzy Navel

January 04, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There,

Traditionally, a fuzzy navel cocktail is a mixed drink made from peach schnapps and orange juice. This classic was created by Ray Foley, who stumbled across this combination in the 80s.  If you add 1 oz Vodka, it is then called a hairy navel, and the more vodka you add the hairier it gets!! We didn't like that name so much, so we named our version which includes an additional twist, the elevated fuzzy navel. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
