S’mores always seems like such a summer thing to me. With all that melted marshmallow, chocolate and graham how can you not think of summer bonfires?

So what happens in the middle of the winter when you are craving a cocktail and s’mores? You combine them – duh. Plus who doesn’t think the idea of peppermint and s’mores sounds totally rockin’? I know I have said this before but I simply can’t help but think about The Sandlot anytime I say the word “s’mores.” It’s basically impossible for me.

FOR-EV-ERRRRRR it will be a problem.

Now in true confession I have to admit that I got this craving for s’mores because I was flipping through the new David Venable book – Back Around the Table: An “In the Kitchen with David” Cookbook. It’s a great book full of hearty dishes that remind you to take a second and get back to the table. That means no more sitting in front of the TV while you trying to balance your plate in your lap.

Got it?

This peppermint s'mores martini is the perfect balance of adult chocolate milk deliciousness and holiday peppermint goodness.

Bonus, when you drink at a table with friends that can turn into a great time to tell stories and play a few rounds of card games. I’m pretty sure I’m a little old lady trapped in a 30 something body. I could play cards all night long and never get bored.

Just remember this formula for any family gathering:

Drinks + food + sitting at the table = laughter, card playing and fun.

Peppermint S'mores Martini

This peppermint s'mores martini is the perfect balance of adult chocolate milk deliciousness and holiday peppermint goodness.

Yield: 2 cocktails

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons vodka
  • 1/4 cups crushed candy canes
  • 2 marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup marshmallow vodka
  • 1/4 cup Adult Chocolate Milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Whipped topping, optional
  • Crushed graham cracker crumbs, optional

Directions:

Put vodka on a small plate. Place the crushed candy canes on another small plate.

Dip the rims of two martini glasses in the vodka, then dip the rims into the candy cane crumbs. Turn the martini glasses right side up.

Toast marshmallows over an open flame or using a lighter. Add 1 marshmallow into each martini glass.

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, half of the marshmallow vodka, half of the Adult Chocolate Milk, and half of the cream. Shake well and strain the mixture into one of the glasses. Repeat for the second drink.

Top with whipped cream, additional crushed candy canes and crushed graham crackers.

Note: adult chocolate milk is something you can find in the liquor store. It's basically boozy shelf stable chocolate milk.

    I have a peppermintini on my blog this week or next, and now I want to retake ALL THE PICTURES. (our recipes are completely different, but our rims are the same.) You and Gina always make me want to step up my picture game. Then I remember I don’t care that much. I’m going to endeavor to care.
