If you like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, then you’ll love these – and if you ever wondered what would improve them, then this is the pick for you! What would improve them, you ask? Some whiskey!
This particular recipe used the Skrewball Whiskey brand for a delicious kick of the smoky stuff. However, that isn’t the only alcohol involved, because there are half ounces of other types to create a great blend.
Those others include liquor and Irish cream. Given that Irish Cream is one of the tastiest drinks ever made, it bodes well for the final cup shot!
This delicious pick offers up the usual delight that you would get from peanut butter whiskey, but adds the fruitiness and sweetness of apple cider (see also ‘23 Of The Very Best Apple Cider Cocktails‘) to provide it with an extra hint of refreshment.
It’s very simple to make, too! Obviously you’ll need some fresh apple cider and peanut butter whiskey, but the ingredients also include some delicious Amaro Averna liqueur.
In addition to that, you’ll also need some Angostura bitters, which are a staple for many famous drinks.
To top it all off, serve with a slice of apple!
We already mentioned earlier how delicious Irish Cream is, and Irish coffee is double that – because it combines it with the rich taste of freshly brewed coffee. However, what if you could make it three times as good?
Well, that’s the peanut butter irish coffee! Adding Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey to your Irish Coffee gives the already-delicious drink a hint of nuttiness that’s more than welcome.
Add to that some whipped cream on top, for extra foamy delight, as well as some cinnamon sticks for a hint of spice, and you’ve got a perfect drink.
A lot of people love a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich – and for good reason! Turns out you can recreate it, somewhat, in delicious drink form.
The idea of adding actual strawberry jelly to a drink may seem odd at first, but all your doubts will disappear as soon as you get a sip of this thing.
Like all great cocktails, it’s quick to make! All you’ll need is the peanut butter whiskey, some orange bitters, and the strawberry jelly itself.
Oh, and some ice! The whiskey and the jelly are added to the shaker filled with ice, before a few dashes of bitters are shaken over the top. Shake it all for a minute and you’re done!
When you think of a milkshake, you may not think of ones that’s alcoholic. However, that would mean you’d be missing out!
A peanut butter whiskey milkshake is as good, if not better, than any other delicious milkshake.
This tasty drink is quick and simple to make, only needing a few ingredients. These include all the traditional milkshake ingredients, such as ice cream and milk.
Those will give it the refreshing and soothing blast of coolness, while the peanut butter whiskey will give it the boozy edge.
In addition to that, some added flavor is given with the inclusion of chocolate milk powder, which also serves to thicken the drink up.
If you like pina colada…then this is the drink for you! A delicious peanut butter cocktail with a fruity tropical edge, this will make you imagine that you’re busy sipping it on a beach somewhere as the sun goes down.
There’s only a handful of ingredients to this cocktail, besides the peanut butter whiskey. In addition to that, you’ll need some dark rum (see also ‘Dark Rum Cocktails: 16 Of The Best‘), a bit of pineapple juice, some sharp orange juice, and a little coconut cream.
It’s a wonderful blend of refreshing and fruity tropical island treats.
Once those are mixed together, some nutmeg is garnished on top for a hint of spice. Additionally, some pineapple leaves are added – it’s like you’re really on the island!
Espresso martinis seem to be everywhere right now, popping up on every restaurant menu we’ve seen. Well, who can blame them?
The Espresso martini is one of the tastiest, coolest, and richest martinis out there. It’s lovely! When you add peanut butter whiskey to the mix, it can be even better.
It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients, either! All you’ll need is the peanut butter whiskey, freshly brewed strong coffee, some coffee liqueur, heavy cream, and some vanilla simple syrup.
After that, you can choose to garnish it with coffee beans too, if you’d love even more coffee in it!
A Moscow Mule is already a delicious cocktail, filled with fruitiness from its combination of lime juice, ginger beer, and vodka. When you add peanut butter whiskey to the mix it just gets better!
This recipe employs orange juice instead of using lime juice, but you can always swap them out.
Simply mix all of the ingredients as per the instructions. Goslings ginger beer is a good pick for that side of things when making it!
This is a peanut butter twist on a classic cocktail, the Old Fashioned.
Though this recipe recommends just adding a Reese’s peanut butter cup as a garnish, we recommend replacing the regular whiskey with peanut butter whiskey – a double hit of nuttiness!
Besides those ingredients, you’ll also want some bourbon, a bit of chocolate whiskey, and some chocolate bitters (delicious!).
As you can tell, there’s a big edge of chocolate to this drink. However, you can add some cherry bark vanilla bitters to balance it out!
This is an incredibly simple to make cocktail, but the tastiness you’ll enjoy is unmatched! All the recipe needs are some peanut butter whiskey, a bit of half or heavy cream, and 0.75 ounces of coffee liqueur.
White Russians usually use vodka in place of the whiskey, but this is arguably improving on an already-great drink.
This is an extremely indulgent (and therefore delicious) cocktail. It has a host of ingredients, but it is no harder to make than any other drink – and that is to say, not very!
For this, you’ll need your trusty peanut butter whiskey, some vodka, Irish Cream (once again!), orange bitters, and cream of coconut. In addition to those, you’ll need some brown sugar simple syrup.
In a neat addition, you may also like to coat the rim of your drink in brown sugar and ground cinnamon. It adds a bit of texture and a spicy kick to your drink!
Hot chocolate is great, but wouldn’t it be better with peanut butter flavored whiskey? Well, you can make just that!
This perfectly balances the delicious richness of hot cocoa with the saltiness of the peanut butter, as well as its hints of nuttiness. It all comes together to create the perfect drink for a cold winter’s day by the fireplace.
All you’ll need is the peanut butter whiskey (as well as some actual peanut butter), cacao powder, salt and sugar, and milk.
For a bonus, you can put some whipped cream on top – it’ll look like the snow you’re no doubt warming yourself up from!
If you’re wanting something more root beer oriented, then this is the one for you! This is a delicious blend of the sweet and salty mix of root beer and the nuttiness of the peanut butter whiskey.
