12 Days of Madtini Holiday Cocktails #10: S’Mores Delight

Christmas S'Mores Delight
The first record of the S’More appeared in 1927 in “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts”. The dessert is made of a layer of chocolate and marshmallow sandwiched between two graham crackers and roasted over an open fire or in the fireplace. The Food Network published this recipe and when we saw it we couldn’t stop ourselves from trying it out and sharing it with you.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp. chocolate syrup
  • 1/2 oz. Kahlua
  • 1/2 oz. dark rum
  • 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. Baileys
  • Toasted marshmallows

Preparation
Drizzle chocolate syrup on the inside of a cocktail glass and then place the glass in the freezer to chill.

Combine the creamy peanut butter and chocolate syrup together in a glass, stir in the Kahlua until the mixture is well blended. Continue to stir in the vodka, dark rum and Baileys. Add the mixture to a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice. Shake well until the mixture is chilled. Strain the mixture into the chilled cocktail glass. Roast two marshmallows over a flame and then add to the drink and serve.

Halloween Cocktails #8, The Dark and Spooky

Dark and SpookyEverything always seems a little spookier on Halloween night. The sky is just a little darker, the wind blowing the leaves around makes you stop and turn, the eyes of the jack-o-lanterns are staring at you from every doorstep. 8 year-olds dressed like Snooki or Lady GaGa and hopped up on adrenalin and sugar run screaming past you, their bleary-eyed parents in useless pursuit.

After all that you’ll probably need a drink to calm your frayed nerves. One of the favorite drinks here at Madtini Intoxicology Labs is the Dark and Stormy. We’re re-naming it the Dark & Spooky for Halloween weekend and throwing in a spooky spider and serving it up with a extra shot of evil.

Cheers and Happy Halloween.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 oz dark rum
  • Juice of one Lime
  • Ginger Beer

Preparation
Combine the dark rum and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Stir, then pour over ice in a rocks glass. Top with Ginger Beer and garnish with a wedge of lime and a large black spider.

At Madtini Intoxicology Labs we’re always up for celebrating just about anything, so why not raise a glass to the second day of September and the hangout for the Brandon, Brenda, Dylan and the rest of the Beverly Hills: 90120 gang.

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz coconut rum
