The other night, my hubby was like, “Make me a nightcap!” Then he went back to chewing on his pipe and reading through his monocle. Or maybe not. His actual request was, “You should make me a fancy drink and then blog about it” — always keeping the idea mill running 🙂
So here’s what I came up with, despite that fact that my bartending experience is limited. (This is an understatement. I only have a 70% success rate working a bottle opener, let alone preparing actual drinks.) I was going to call this a “smores martini,” but I think a martini has to have vermouth…? Whatever. It’s a delicious smores-inspired beverage served in a martini glass.
- 1 oz. tasty vodka (chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow)
- 1 oz. Baileys Irish Cream
- chocolate syrup
- 1 oz. half and half
- 1 oz. milk
- graham crackers and marshmallows (for garnish) (I just like saying “for garnish”)
Squeeze some chocolate syrup into the bottom of the glass.
Mix the beverage-y stuff in a shaker (or in your gym water bottle, whatevs) and pour into a martini glass. Dress it up nice with some marshmallows on a skewer et voila*, you have a smores martini that’s not really a martini.
* No idea if I used that correctly.
