I'm always looking for a new cocktail to try. And no, I'm not a lush. I'm just a working mom with three kids (one of whom is a teenager and the others are girls), a dog, a house, and the normal stresses anyone else has. In order to not let the raging lunatic out (very often), I have a cocktail now and again.
Makes 2 cocktails
3 oz. marshmallow vodka
1-1/2 oz. hazelnut liqueur (such as Frangelico)
1-1/2 oz. peanut butter syrup (see below)
Marshmallows, for garnish (optional)
Peanut Butter Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/2 cup peanut butter
Make the syrup: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the sugar, water, and peanut butter. Whisk until combined and no sugar granules remain. Set aside to thicken and cool.
Make the drink: In a shaker filled with ice, combine the vodka, liqueur, and peanut butter simple syrup. Shake and pour. Garnish with marshmallow perched on rim.
