Happy Thursday Slow Roasters! Welcome to Ladies Night here at The Slow Roasted Italian. Tonight I am sharing a very special cocktail created by our very own mixologist Chad (also my fabulous other half).
After a long hard day what sounds amazing to you? The most heavenly food combination ever: peanut butter and chocolate. Do you remember that commercial from the 80's? A jar of peanut butter and a giant chocolate candy bar sticking out. "You stuck your chocolate in my peanut butter..." THAT could be my heaven.
My favorite candy ever are the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Easter Eggs. I could eat them everyday and be completely happy. Peanut butter cups are my happy food! Not just off the store shelf though, my favorite is to eat them chilled. Ohhhhh purely divine!!!
Keeping this in mind, Chad developed my happy cocktail. Being completely thoughtful of his cocktail creation he is using real peanut butter, he adds Kahlua to bring out the chocolate flavor (as I add coffee to chocolate in baking). This is not your standard peanut butter martini. This is like a peanut butter cup in a glass. It is absolutely incredible. So, kick off your shoes, grab a spot on your favorite comfy chair and pour yourself a Peanut Butter Cup Delight Cocktail. Virtually guaranteed to chase your day away.
Peanut Butter Cup Delight Cocktail
1 1/2 ounces Creme de Cacao
1 ounce Kahlua (coffee liqueur)
1 ounce Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur)
1/2 ounce Bacardi white rum

In a martini shaker; combine the alcohols and the peanut butter, stir until it the peanut butter is dissolved into the alcohols. Add cream and ice to the peanut butter mixture and shake to chill and combine.
