Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail

Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail is a velvety cocktail that tastes like a peanut butter cup in a glass! Peanut butter whiskey and dark chocolate liqueur swirl together to make this creamy, dreamy drink. Rim the glasses with peanut butter and chopped peanut butter cups for the ultimate cocktail!

Peanut Butter Whiskey

Since this is a peanut butter cup cocktail, peanut butter whiskey is one of the star ingredients! I had never tried it before my husband introduced it to me. For a whiskey, it is velvety, smooth and actually has a full peanut butter flavor! It’s very surprising!

We’ve been using Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey and it works perfect for this recipe. It can typically be found at local grocery or liqueur stores.

Chocolate Liqueur

Another main aspect of a peanut butter cup: chocolate! Dark chocolate liqueur is what does it for me. We’ve tested this recipe with both milk chocolate and dark chocolate liqueur and hands-down, the dark chocolate won! It’s much more smooth and has a full chocolate flavor, in my opinion. I’m all for that! Either option works though. You could even try it with white chocolate liqueur for a fun spin!

I use a cocktail shaker for this drink so that I don’t have to serve the cocktail over ice. Definitely worth it!

How to Rim the Glasses

Lastly, it’s time to rim the glasses! No, it’s not necessary, but it really does take this recipe over the top! SO worth it. Trust me. We’ve had this cocktail with and without a rimmed glass and the rimmed glass makes the biggest difference in the world. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Melt some creamy peanut butter on a plate until it”s a bit softer and slightly runny.
  2. Chop up some peanut butter cups and place on another plate.
  3. Dip the rim of the glass into the melted peanut butter to lightly coat the rim and then dunk into the chopped peanut butter cups to decorate.

See? Easy peasy! This can either be done right before pouring the cocktail in the glass or in advance. If you are serving this cocktail for a crowd, it would be fun to rim the glasses in advance so that guests have decorated peanut butter cup glasses to grab!

When pouring the cocktail into the glass, be careful to not pour it onto the decorated rims so that you don’t ruin your handy work.
