Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE FOR RECIPE

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
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
3 ounces of cream or milk
chocolate syrup for garnish
handful of ice

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.

Prepare a martini glass by pouring a little chocolate in the bottom, decorate as you wish.  Pour Peanut Butter Cup Delight Cocktail through strainer and serve.

  1. oh holy smokes. Who on earth would have thought of a PB martini? I half laughed when you said that this was not the average PB martini. I actually googled it thinking that there couldn't possible be such a thing already. Ha. Apparently, there is and Chad has just kicked it up about a dozen notches.

    By the way, I LOVE the photo. It is the perfect example of my REAL ladies night. Kids are down and I'm ready to truly relax in my favorite place. HOME!

    This I tell you...THIS is the finale cocktail I'm going to present during a "Martini Duel" I'm doing with a friend (for another friend's birthday)! His specialty is a chocolate martini & a Peanut Butter Cup Delight will blow his sad little chocolate martini, everyone attending & tasting away! Not that we are competitive or anything, LoL!
