Thirsty Thursday: Peanut Butter and Jealous Much?

By: Roberto Ferdman

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too.

Last week we shared our adult's only riff on the Shamrock Shake; this week we're back with a cocktail best served alongside your favorite childhood snack.

Do you ever find yourself feeling nostalgic for those awkward elementary school days? Do you long to spread Skippy Peanut Butter, the smooth kind, and Smucker's Grape Jelly on country white bread? The bad news is you have peanut butter and jelly sandwich withdrawal syndrome. Peanut butter and jelly what? Just an highly unscientific term we made up. Nothing serious, no need to fret. It's easily curable and you haven't heard the good news: you can have that peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and drink it, too.

Thanks to cocktail queens Alie and Georgia, all it takes is 6 ingredients, 5 quick minutes and an eagerness to imbibe. They call it Peanut Butter and Jealous, but there'll be no green monster lurking around once you're at home sipping on one, too.

Bottoms up, folks.

1 serving

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon honey mixed with 1 tablespoon peanut butter

Handful raspberries

Ice

2 ounces raspberry vodka

1 ounce raspberry liqueur

4 ounces cranberry juice

Directions:

Rim the serving glass in the peanut butter-honey mixture. Next, muddle raspberries at the bottom of the glass and add ice. Pour in vodka, raspberry liqueur and cranberry juice and stir. Garnish with triangle of peanut butter sandwich sliced and wedged on the rim, and toast to the fact that snack time is much more fun as a grown-up.
