What is a Royal Flush Drink?

The Royal Flush drink was named after the best hand in poker “the royal flush” The royal flush is the best combination of cards to have in the popular game of poker. The card combination is Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and a 10. All cards must be of the same suit. This drink is as decadent as the hand it was named after.

Royal Flush Drink Recipe:

This is an adaptation of the original Crown Royal drink recipe. We added the Caribbean rum for a bit more richness. We think you’ll love it this way.

Ingredients For The Royal Flush Cocktail
Ingredients for the royal flush cocktail.
  • Crown royal whiskey (any good whiskey will work.)
  • malibu rum
  • peachtree schnapps (or any good peach liqueur)
  • cranberry juice (we prefer sweetened rather than unsweetened for this drink)


You can create your own style with the garnishings. Here are a few ideas. We’d love to know how you build this drink.

  • We used a maraschino cherry. Just plopped it on the ice.
  • OR Garnish with an orange peel twist or wedge on the rim.
  • We also used the large square cubes for the look. And they dissolve a lot slower than small ice cubes so slower dilution.
  • Add a fresh whole cranberry or three on a pick for winter.
  • slice a fresh peach and slide it into the glass for summer.
