What Percentage of Alcohol Is in Peach Schnapps?

Peach schnapps has a volume alcohol content of 48 proof, or around 24 percent. Depending on the manufacturer, a 1-ounce shot of peach schnapps has about 72 calories, 6.6 grammes of carbs, and 6.5 grammes of sugar.

In order to make schnapps, which have their roots in Europe, neutral-grained alcohol is combined with sugar, glycerin, fruit flavouring, and/or actual fruit. The percentage of alcohol might be anything between 15% and 50%.

Because American schnapps contains a lot of sugar, it is categorised as a liqueur. The fuzzy navel, sex on the beach, and frozen beverages like daiquiris and margaritas all contain peach schnapps as a key ingredient.
