Of all the nuts out there, peanuts are one of our favorites. And for good reason too: peanuts gave way to peanut butter, baseball culture, and a whole new perspective on allergies. Now, in honor of National Peanut Day, let’s show our appreciation in the best way we know how. You guessed it, with booze.
Take a second and let that sink in. Peanut. Butter. Beer. This godly creation from Belching Beaver Brewery combines the aromas of chocolate and peanut butter with a creamy body that’s sure to give you peanut buttery dreams.
Can you think of a better dessert cocktail? We thought not. Here’s what you’ll need for this masterpiece.
1 shot Vanilla vodka
1 shot Peanut butter syrup (recipe below)
1 shot Cream or half & half
2/3 shot Chocolate liqueur
1/3 shot Creme de cacao
Chocolate syrup for garnish
Peanut butter syrup
1/4 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup water
1/4 Cup smooth peanut butter
Pinch of sea salt
Combine the sugar and water in a pot over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the peanut butter and top it off with a pinch of salt.
Combine the vanilla vodka, peanut butter syrup, cream, chocolate liqueur and creme de cacao in a shaker with ice. Shake to your heart’s content, and pour into a chocolate rimmed martini glass.
If you’re looking to satisfy that boozy peanut butter craving sooner rather than later, this flavored vodka may be just right for you. Proud of not having a salty aftertaste, you can go for shots, or mix it with chocolate milk for a dessert drink. Just remember their slogan: WE LIKE IT NUTTY™
