The peach flavor is a tropical dream, and it works perfectly with a variety of types of rum. Heck, it even mixes well with types of alcohol that work in daiquiri combinations.
In this BinWise blog post, we’ll walk through several peach daiquiri recipe options. From a mocktails option to a bellini mix, there’s a lot you can do with a peach daiquiri. By the end of this blog you’ll be ready to make a peach daiquiri for personal guests or patrons at your bar business.
Virgin Peach Daiquiri Recipe
The goal of every bartender is to make drinks that anyone can enjoy. Sometimes that means making drinks without alcohol.
- 3 fresh peaches, peeled and quartered
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 2 tsp of fresh lime juice
- 4 oz of water
- 2 cups of ice
You can experiment with other flavors, from allspice to vanilla, to add more in place of the rum. However, the peach flavor is such a treat that this mix with water hits the spot for a non-alcoholic drink.
Peach Bellini Daiquiri Recipe
The peach daiquiri is undeniably a delicious drink. Peach and rum are a match that complement each other’s flavors in unique ways depending on how you mix them. You can add mint or switch up the types of rum you use. You can choose fresh or frozen peaches or even different varieties of peaches–from donut peaches to yellow peaches.
What about using different types of alcohol, though? If you’re a fan of peach drinks, then you’re sure to be familiar with the peach bellini with schnapps. Peach schnapps and rum blend well together, to make an interesting bellini-daiquiri mix:
- 6 ounces of sparkling white wine
- 1 ounce of Peach Schnapps
- 1 ounce of light rum–typically the best rum for daiquiri drinks
- 2 frozen peaches, sliced
- 2 cups of ice
If you want to make this drink a bellini without the daiquiri influence, all you need to do is leave out the rum. We recommend trying both, and maybe even mixing up the sparkling wines you include, to find new flavor combinations.
Frozen Peach Daiquiri Recipe
Frozen daiquiris are one of the best ways to serve up this summertime drink. The delightful effect of a slushy drink combined with rum is perfect for a happy hour or any other occasion. Even National Cocktail Day is well-suited to include some frozen daiquiris on the menu.
There are a few ways you can mix up a frozen peach daiquiri recipe. One sweet option calls for:
- 4 ripe yellow peaches
- 4 tablespoons of agave nectar or simple syrup
- 6 ounces of dark rum
- 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
- 2 cups of ice
Our recommendation is to use agave nectar if you have it on hand. For bars and restaurants, make sure your inventory program takes into account those niche ingredients. Of course, you can always use any sugar you have on hand, too:
- 3 large peaches
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- 1/2 cup of light rum
- 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
- 3 cups of crushed ice
The plain sugar will make this an equally decadent version of the frozen peach daiquiri recipe. However, the light rum will keep it on the airy side. Another option is a recipe that meets in the middle:
- 3 cups of ice
- 2 cups of frozen peaches
- 3/4 cup of light rum
- 1/3 cup of agave nectar
- 1/4 cup of lime juice
- Mint for garnish
This option is great for an unexpected party. The frozen peaches are quick to prepare, and the use of light rum makes this a good option for any party guests. The mint for garnish adds an unexpected twist.
"Key Takeaway: The peach flavor is a tropical dream, and it works perfectly with a variety of types of rum."

Our answers to the following frequently asked questions will give you background on the peach daiquiri, as well as daiquiris and peach cocktails in general:
How Do You Serve a Daiquiri?
A daiquiri is often served in a traditional martini glass, a tall glass, or even a coupe glass. However, it’s a tropical drink, so you can also enjoy it in a hurricane or margarita glass if you like. Truly, any bar glasses will work. The most important part of serving a daiquiri, no matter the glassware, is that it’s enjoyed.
How Do You Peel Peaches?
The best process to peel peaches is:
- Boil a pot full of water, enough to completely submerge the peaches.
- Once the water reaches a boiling point, reduce the heat to a simmer. Gently lower the peaches into the water. Let them soak for about 30 seconds.
- Use a slotted spoon or a skimmer to move the peaches from the water into a bowl of ice water.
- Once the peaches have cooled, the peach skin should easily peel away by hand. You can start by cutting a small slit in the skin to start the peeling process.
- Once you’ve removed the peach skin, slice the peach in half, pull the sides apart, and remove the pit.
This method will take some preparation time. However, it’s worth it for the end result of well-peeled peaches.

Peach schnapps is a strong spirit made from peaches and a clear grain spirit–often vodka. Peach schnapps is essentially a peach liqueur. It can be drunk alone or used in mixed drinks. Ultimately, it can add to a peach daiquiri, or be used to add a peach flavor to any other drink.
