Essential Liquor #16

#16) Peach Schnapps - Our first true schnapps on the list is a ladies' staple. It is absolutely necessary for the classic girl intoxicators such as the Fuzzy Navel, Sex on the Beach,and the Red Headed Slut. Unlike many of its ilk, peach is a versatile schnapps, just remember that a little goes a long way.

Essential Liquor #15

#15) Southern Comfort - I cannot remember a summer in the 2000s where we didn't drink a bottle of Southern Comfort. This is one of my dad's liquors, a simple change of pace from his customary supper club Brandy Old Fashioned Sweet. Simply remove the brandy and insert SoCo - voila... the Southern Comfort Old Fashioned.

Essential Liquor #14

#14) Light Rum - While not as flavorful as dark rum, light rum is a prerequisite for tropical drinks whose color is provided by the fruit. It also allows for the crushed mint and crystal look of the classic mojito.
