PB&JNo time to make a big dessert for your next dinner party? Why not try making a cool dessert shot?

This one is called a PB&J – its quick – its easy and it’s delicious, and it truly does have the delicious scent and flavor or peanut butter and jelly.

INGREDIENTS: (Serves four 1 1/2 ounce shots)
  • 3 ounces Franjelico (- that’s hazlenut liqueur – it smells fantastic, by the way)
  • 3 ounces Heering Cherry Liqueur - (If you can’t find that, you could also use Chambord, which is raspberry, and also delicious.)
  • 1/4 cup honey roasted peanuts, finely chopped

TOOLS:

  • A measuring cup or mixing glass with a pouring spout – (it really helps with pouring them into the shot glasses – if you don’t have one, you can simply use a funnel.)
Four shot glasses. (I used two ounce glasses, but you can always use traditional shot glasses and you’ll have double the quantity.)
DIRECTIONS:
Fill your mixing glass with 3 ounces of Franjelico
Now fill the same glass with three ounces of the Heering.
Stir.
SERVE IT UP!
Take your 1/4 cup of honey roasted peanuts and place them on a small dish.
In a small bowl, pour just enough extra Franjelico (not from your finished drink) that you can dip each shot glass into the ground peanuts. Essentially, you’re creating a peanut rim around each glass, (similar to a salted rim margarita)
Carefully pour the mixed shot into each glass, being careful not to shake loose the peanut rim!
Serve.
The smell of the peanuts on the rim will really evoke the PB&J flavor, and the drink itself is deliciously sweet without being too much. It smells fantastic. It tastes fantastic.
Make some right now – i’ll be right over!
