Behold, a cocktail that harks back to the favorite childhood flavors of peanut butter and marshmallows! We often appoint marshmallows to s’more and hot chocolate duty, but Alie and Georgia pair these delicate morsels with creamy and slightly salty peanut butter for a nostalgic concoction that will satisfy your inner camper.

Start with a peanut butter simple syrup by simmering equal parts sugar and water with a generous dollop of peanut butter. Once cooled, combine with marshmallow-flavored vodka and hazelnut liqueur for an extra oomph of nuttiness. Shake with ice until chilled and frothy. Finally, this intoxicating cocktail is played up by the addition of a peanut butter-stuffed marshmallow garnish.

Bottoms up, folks.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 ounces marshmallow-flavored vodka, such as Pinnacle or Smirnoff
  • 1 1/2 ounces hazelnut liqueur, such as Frangelico
  • Ice, for chilling
  • 2 marshmallows, for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon peanut butter, for garnish
Directions:

For the peanut butter simple syrup: Combine the sugar, peanut butter and 1 cup water in a saucepan and simmer over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Pour the vodka, hazelnut liqueur and 1 ounce of the peanut butter simple syrup into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well until chilled and frothy. Pour into small up glasses and garnish with a marshmallow that's been injected/stuffed with the peanut butter. Then try not to eat peanut butter from the jar with your hands.
