Peaches and almonds make a terrific, if unsung, pairing. If you need convincing, first consider this Peach Pie With Double Cinnamon-Almond Crust dessert recipe; then, try a sip of Haasarud's Peach Pit cocktail, which contains a whole ripe peach, peach vodka and the amaretto liqueur Amaretto di Saronno, an Italian brand that has a bittersweet almond flavor.

Serves 1


  • 1 whole ripe peach, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 ounces fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces peach vodka (such as CĂ®roc Peach)
  • 3/4 ounce amaretto liqueur (such as Amaretto di Saronno)
  • Agave nectar (optional)


Combine the peach chunks, orange juice, peach vodka and amaretto liqueur in a blender. Blend at high until smooth. Add 3/4 cup of ice and blend at high speed again until smooth. Add agave nectar for additional sweetness, if needed.
