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.

C is for Cookies! Oh, and of course Cocktails!

Cookie Cocktails from The Martini DivaWho wants cookie dough?

Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about our ‘new’ first favorite way to enjoy cookies, in cocktail form. We looked around and found that the authority on delivering cookie flavored cocktails has got to be The Martini Diva. Not only does she publish hundreds of great cocktail recipes, she also provides a 5×3  recipe card illustrated by The Martini Diva herself.

After some lively internal debate and an inventory of the Madtini Labs supply. We narrowed down our drinks to four, the Peanut Butter, Macaroon, Chocolate Chip and Oreo cookie cocktails. The key ingredient turns out to be Butterscotch Schnapps which provides the doughy background taste.
