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!
