Quick and easy Whiskey Cocktails
As a bourbon geek, I wanted to hate peanut whiskey. But a small sample drink and a cocktail lover for me took a bottle so I could go home and fix my cocktail game. And while Peanut Skrewball whiskey is probably the most well-known example of nut-scented whiskeys, it is not alone. I actually went home with a bottle.
I am writing this letter to everyone who keeps home with a bottle sitting almost full in their bar wondering how it can be better used.
With the sweet-smelling whiskeys all the rage recently (apparently converting vodka drinkers and whiskey drinkers), it helps to think about how we got here. Back before you bought pb-flavored liqueur, bartenders and mixologists used a process called oil washing to combine the sweet, nutty beauty of peanut butter with bourbon and whiskey.
Many bourbons and whiskeys have nutty notes – both on the nose and in the taste. Putting those together is a natural game.
In an oil bath, a fat-rich food product, such as peanut butter, bacon bacon, or brown butter mixed with whiskey, is left to stand for a few hours, then refrigerated for 24 hours until solid food in the refrigerator freezes the top of the container. The mixture is filtered through a fine sieve, and then a coffee filter (which can take several hours) until the resulting whiskey smells but turns.
Oil washing adds flavor and mouthfeel to the air. Whiskey becomes more creamier and viscous – and with something like peanut butter as a flavoring agent, it reminds me of taking a big pb wound with a great feeling in the mouth.
As current products are commercially available, liqueurs are tilted to the sweeter side of the spectrum, and although full of peanut butter flavors do not have the depth of flavor whiskey naturally washed with oil. With peanut butter whiskeys I tried to get a lot of butterscotch on my nose, and a lot of delicious peanut flavors.
Types of Peanut Butter Whiskey Cocktails
Many brands play catch-up to compete with Skrewball Whiskey, the first to market. Some brands have borrowed the shape of a bottle, or the sound of a word, while others have similar logos. They all last about 70 minutes – 35% ABV. This is less alcohol than bourbon or whiskey, but more than most liqueurs.
How to Drink Peanut Butter Whiskey
Every time I try to get some fresh air at a liquor store and bring a bottle home I face the same question you do: what goes with the nuts (or what I brought home)?
Of course sellers and sellers know: when we taste something we are more likely to buy it. That’s why Costco has been working on flavor channels before the epidemic.
And while that half-ounce of spiced whiskey in a liquor store tastes good, it’s a different story once you’ve found a 750 mL home and wondered what you can do with it. Here are some recipes for a simple peanut butter drink to make at home:
1. Adult Peanut Butter Chocolate Coffee
Brew a cup of hazelnut coffee, add 1 oz of peanut butter whiskey and 1 oz of chocolate whiskey or creme de cocoa. Top with whipped cream and a cup of Reese or three.
2. Adult PB Coffee
Take your favorite coffee, and add 1.5 – 2 ounces of peanut whiskey. Done.
3. Old PBJ Coffee
Add the following to a cup of 10-12 oz: 1 oz peanut butter liqueur and 1 oz raspberry or strawberry liqueur.
4. Nutritious Lemonade
Add 1 oz of peanut butter liqueur to a long glass of your favorite lemonade. Lemon tarts usually have nutty crusts. This is proof that the combination works in a liquid way.
BIG BALLS AND OLD CODES
1. PB & J Highball
Pour 1.5 ounces of pb whiskey into a tall glass, fill with ice, and top with strawberry seltzer water.
2. Fluffernutter Highball
Put one ounce of peanut whiskey and one ounce of marshmallow vodka in a highball glass.
Fill with ice and above with club soda or unsweetened seltzer water. Garnish with marshmallows.
3. Peanut Butter Whiskey Sour
Make an old sour with 1 oz of nuts and liqueur, 1 oz bourbon, one oz of lemon and ½ oz simple syrup. Shake together and place in a stone glass over ice.
PB chocolate milk: A perfect quick cocktail before bed – a glass of chocolate milk with an ounce or two of peanut whiskey.
Boozy Peanut Butter Milkshake: Put two ounces of peanut whiskey in a vanilla milkshake.
Boozy Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake: Put two ounces of peanut whiskey in a chocolate milkshake.
Peanut Butter Cup Shot
To make this shot of peanut butter whiskey, combine shooting glasses filled with equal parts of peanut butter whiskey, chocolate liqueur or creme de cocoa, and other milk or milk options. This tasted great when all three were in the fridge.
Combine shooting glasses with equal parts of peanut butter whiskey and Chambord or Raspberry liqueur. Also, it is best when everything is cold first.
EASY PEANUT BUTTER WHISKEY
In addition to the quick drinks listed above, you can take more time and create a memorable cocktail at home using that bottle that still sits in your bar.
PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY OLD FASHION
I learned my lesson here. Instead, make a simple syrup from concord grape juice as a delicious ingredient in your Old Fashioned. Non-whiskey drinkers love to drink in this nut cocktail.
PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY OLD FASHIONED
The Lord loved peanut butter nuts and this great crunch on mint julep took advantage of the taste of peanut butter whiskey mixed with banana liqueur. Topping the cocktail with garnished peanut butter makes it perfect.
Nuts BUTTER CHOCOLATE OLD FASHIONED
Anything that combines peanut butter and chocolate is a winning combination for me. This Peanut Butter Chocolate Old Fashioned cocktail keeps bourbon leading with plenty of basic air. However, if you like, you can differentiate between pb whiskey and bourbon for a delicious, delicious cocktail.
