A peach martini is a vodka-based cold alcoholic beverage with peach or peach flavored components. It tastes sweet and is served in a martini glass. Although it has the same name as the classic martini, it does not have similar ingredients and is often called a martini just because of the glass it is served in. When served, a peach martini can be a liquid drink or it can be a frozen drink with a texture similar to a thin iced smoothie.

While most peach martinis are made with peach-flavored alcohol, such as peach vodka or peach schnapps, some peach martinis contain real peach components. Even when they don’t contain peach fruit, many peach martini glasses are given a fresh peach garnish for presentation. The peach contained in a drink is usually peach puree or peach nectar. When other fruit or peach-flavored components are in a drink, the peach martini may contain other vodka flavors such as vanilla or citrus instead of peach vodka.

Some types of peach martinis are made in shakers or shaken like classic martinis, while others are made in a blender.

Frozen peach martinis are essentially daiquiris with vodka instead of rum as the alcohol component.

It is usually decorated with an olive. Martinis are sometimes garnished with squeezed lemon wedges. Other flavored martinis that aren’t technically martinis include the appletini, caramel martini, and chocolate martini.
