Recently I was at a restaurant and they offered a PB & J cocktail on their menu, and I gave it a try. I think their drink had red wine and maybe some actual jelly in it, and it was delicious. The amazing part to this drink was the peanut butter whiskey. Yup, whiskey. I am not a whiskey drinker, but this whiskey is like no other whiskey I have cringed taking a sip of before. It is so smooth and tastes like you are drinking melted peanut butter. To me it tastes more like a liqueur, and I believe the alcohol content is less than a typical whiskey. Kudos to Skrewball Whiskey for coming up with such a delicious and unique product!
I didn’t really want to figure out how to combine the ingredients used in the restaurant so I decided to give Chambord a try, which I already had in my house. If you aren’t familiar with Chambord, it is a raspberry flavored liqueur.
I used a 2 to 1 ratio and poured 1 oz of Chambord over ice and topped it with 2 ounces of the whiskey. It was perfect, and like no other drink I have ever tried. And the lyrics “peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time”, was on repeat in my head the entire time I was making it.
If you like peanut butter and jelly, this cocktail is a must try. Trust me.
I can’t wait to play around with this whiskey and some chocolate liqueur!
Cosmos are one of my “go to” drinks when I am ordering a cocktail at a restaurant. There are so many different variations of this popular drink but this is the version that I enjoy at home and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!
2 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Countreau
1 oz. cranberry juice
1/2 oz. lime juice
Ignore the Gin marker on the bottle, it is actually Vodka. I don’t drink Gin and it was the only antique bottle marker I had and I like the way it looks on my decanter.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of lime. Enjoy!
Looking for a fun Saturday Sip? Or any day sip? How about the combination of raspberry and lemon? Some of my favorite flavors together are lemon and raspberry, so Chambord and Limoncello were on the liquor store “packie” shopping list.
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 1/2 oz. Limoncello
1 oz. Chambord
Squeeze of a lemon
Rim a martini glass with lemon juice, and dip it in some sugar to make a lemon sugar rim.
Add all of the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker along with some ice and shake well.
Pour into your sugar rimmed martini glass and garnish with a slice of lemon.
The thing I love most about this martini is not only does it combine the three flavors I love, chocolate, raspberry, and vanilla, but it doesn’t have any additional creamy liquid. Lots of these dessert martinis have half and half or Bailey’s as an ingredient as well. While those flavors are also delicious, this recipe is great if you aren’t looking for such a heavy drink.
2 oz. vanilla vodka
2 oz. Chambord or raspberry liquor
2 oz. chocolate liquor
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well. Pour into a martini glass and enjoy!
