Blue Moon beer, peach schnapps and orange juice. Quite easily my new favourite drink for the summer. I saw this, as many others have, on Pinterest as it's making the rounds. I liked it and tucked it away to have a look at later when I had the ingredients to make it.
I finally bought myself some Blue Moon, clicked on the link and realized it was just a link to a restaurant's drink menu - no recipe!!
Aarrrgh!! How much peach schnapps?? How much OJ?? Is it like a shandy type drink with half OJ and half beer or the type you just add a shot of OJ to? Sigh....a further google search came up with pretty much nothing.
So, I got experimenting and actually fell in love with the first proportions I put together - 1 shot of peach schnapps, 2 shots of orange juice to one 330ml bottle of Blue Moon. It's gorgeous: peachy, refreshing and like summer in a glass - enjoy!
• 1 x 330ml bottle of original Blue Moon beer
• 1.5 fl oz shot of Archer's Peach Schnapps
• 3 fl oz shot of smooth orange juice
• slice of orange
Pour the Blue Moon slowly into a large glass about halfway, add the schnapps and orange juice, give it a little stir then fill the glass up with the rest of the blue moon and give it another little stir. Add a slice of orange to the glass for garnish.

This is Blue Moon for those who haven't heard of it (vegan as well of course). It's a Belgian style white beer (from America) and as stated on the bottle "Brewed with white wheat and oats, Blue Moon features a crisp wheat finish and the perfect combination of orange peel and coriander." It comes in other flavours but it's this original one you want to use here. For the record, I do love this beer on it's own as well!
There are other brands of peach schnapps but Archer's is vegan according to Barnivore and the one I used here.
