Coming up with creative drinks for yourself or for friends to try isn't difficult with the triumverate of vodka, peach schnapps and lemonade. While vodka and schnapps of all types are present in any number of beverages and vodka drinks, the citrus sweetness of lemonade, whether in a quick splash or as the main event, adds something different to your drink. It can impart a tropical flavor in certain combinations while retaining a taste "just like home" in other instances. Moreover, these three ingredients mix well together in a variety of combinations, and they can be added to other flavors in a shot or a cocktail.

Layer the ingredients or shake them together. Finish off with a dash of grenadine and allow the grenadine to sink; This will make the drink appear similar to a piece of watermelon.
