The Fuzzy Navel, the ubiquitous two-ingredient drink from the 1980s, begat this higher-octane spinoff that adds vodka to its parent cocktail’s mix of peach schnapps and orange juice. Its predecessor was named after peach fuzz, for the fruit-flavored liqueur that forms half the drink, and the type of oranges juiced; this version is “hairier.” It’s still fairly soft as cocktails go, however, as perfect for sipping poolside or on the beach as at a ’80s-themed party.

Its simplicity renders it perfect for riffing. Try using a fruit-flavored vodka, orange or otherwise, for a more complex variation. It’s also perfect for sizing up and throwing into a punch bowl with some ice for a crowd-pleasing party punch.

  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce peach schnapps

  • Garnish: orange wheel
