The Perfect Crown Royal Peach Cocktail

This drink is made with Crown Royal, Peach Schnapps, Cranberry Juice, Pineapple Juice, and Sprite, served over ice. The peach schnapps provides a strong peach flavor that’s nicely balanced by the tartness of the cranberry juice and the sweetness of the pineapple juice. The addition of vodka, if used, gives the cocktail a slight alcoholic kick.

Overall, the taste of a Royal Peach Cocktail can vary depending on the specific recipe used, but it generally has a pleasant fruity taste that is enjoyed by many cocktail enthusiasts. It is a great drink for those who prefer their cocktails on the sweeter side, and it is perfect for sipping on a warm summer evening.

What is Crown Royal and Crown Royal Peach?

Crown Royal is a brand of Canadian whiskey, first introduced in 1939. It’s made from a blend of high-quality grain whiskies and aged in oak barrels. One of its hallmarks is that it’s aged for a minimum of three years. This is what is attributed to its distinct smoothness and popular flavor.

Crown Royal has a rich, caramel-like flavor with notes of vanilla, oak, and fruit, and a subtle hint of spice. It’s often enjoyed neat or on the rocks, but it can also be used in cocktails and mixed drinks.

This Crown peach cocktail recipe calls for Crown Royal Peach, a flavored whiskey that is part of the Crown Royal brand of Canadian whiskies. It was introduced in 2019 and has quickly become a popular addition to the Crown Royal lineup of fine whiskeys. It’s made by blending classic Canadian whiskey with natural peach flavor, resulting in a sweet and fruity flavored alcohol with notes of juicy peach and a hint of vanilla.

You can’t go wrong with Crown Royal, especially when making Crown Royal Peach mixed drinks. Here’s a lineup of all my 7+ Best Crown Royal Cocktails and crown peach drinks.

What You’ll Need to Make a Royal Peach Cocktail

Here’s what you need to make this delicious crown peach mixed drink:

  • Cranberry juice – I recommend a sweet version for this recipe, but not a blend with blueberries or other berries.
  • Pineapple juice – Any brand will do.
  • Peach Schnapps – There are lots of kinds of peach schnapps out there. Choose something smooth and sweet for this recipe.
  • Crown Royal Peach – Only the classic makes this a true Royal Peach, but in a pinch, peach vodka can be a reasonable substitute.
  • Sprite – You’ll want it cold, so put it in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Ice cubes – Enough to add to a shaker for each drink.
  • Mint leaves – Optional garnish.
  • Peach slices – Optional garnish.

Ingredient Substitutions

Want to change up this Crown peach cocktail a bit? Here are a few suggestions:

  • Pineapple Juice – Use orange, peach, or a tropical blend juice instead.
  • Sprite – You can substitute any lemon-lime soda, like 7-Up, in this recipe.
  • Crown Royal – This is the quintessential ingredient in this recipe, in my opinion, but if you need to, you can use vodka instead of whiskey.
  • Mint Leaves – Mint makes a pretty garnish, but you can use orange wheels or cherries for a pretty look as well.

Tips for Making a Crown Royal Peach Cocktail

Here are some tips and hints for making a perfect crown peach mixed drink:

  • Use fresh ingredients. Anytime you make a mixed cocktail like this one, it’s going to taste better when it’s made with fresh ingredients. Use fresh juice if possible, and garnish with juicy fresh peaches.
  • Make sure your ingredients are nice and cold. Fruity mixed drinks are always yummier when they’re ice cold.
  • Don’t skimp on the ice. A Royal Peach Cocktail should be served over ice to keep it cold and refreshing. So fill your shaker up!
  • Sweeten to taste. You can use the peach schnapps to adjust your sweetness preference. If you want it a bit sweeter, add a bit more schnapps.

Can I Make This Ahead?

Yes, you can definitely make a pitcher of this Royal Peach Cocktail in advance. Combine all of the ingredients except for the Sprite in a pitcher, stir well with a wooden or metal spoon, and refrigerate until serving.

Pour in the Sprite just before serving, give it a gentle stir, and pour over ice.

How to Store Leftover Crown Peach Cocktails

You can store this drink if you have leftovers, but it will lose its original fizziness. You can remove the ice and place the leftovers in a covered container in the fridge. When you’re ready to drink it again, add it back into a shaker with a splash of Sprite and ice. Shake, pour, and drink!
