S'more Martinis: No Campfire Necessary

Smore Martini

Get toasted with this grown-up toasted-marshmallow treat in a glass! Sweet for September's last al fresco soiree or after-dark barbecue. For glasses you can dip right into the jar of marshmallow creme, try ones like this with a narrower brim.

Read on to take a big sip of our S'more Martini recipe...

S'more Martinis

  • 32 ounces vodka
  • 16 ounces chocolate liqueur (we used E & J® Cask & Cream Chocolate Temptation)
  • 1 64-ounce pitcher
  • 1 graham cracker
  • 1 jar marshmallow creme (we like Marshmallow Fluff®)
  • 16 martini glasses (disposable versions available at party stores)
  • 1 bag wooden skewers
  • 1 bag miniature marshmallows

Pour vodka and chocolate liqueur into pitcher and stir. Refrigerate for at least several hours until the mixture is very cold.

Crush a graham cracker in a plastic bag, then pour the crumbs into a small bowl.

When no one's looking, dip a finger into the jar of marshmallow creme, then run it around the rims of your martini glasses to lightly coat. Next, dip each glass into the bowl of graham cracker crumbs and shake the bowl gently to cover the marshmallow creme with crumbs. (You can do this the night before the party and stick the prepared glasses in the freezer if you like.)

If you have a grill going (or even better, a firepit or chimenea), offer each guest a wooden skewer and three mini marshmallows to toast over the flame (put the grill on high for the best browning). Note: Although the skewer package may advise soaking the skewers in water for at least 20 minutes, it's not necessary for this use.

Pour about 3 ounces of the drink mixture into each of the prepared glasses and serve, letting each guest slide their roasted marshmallows into their drink for garnish.

Serves 16

Ew!!

Sorry, but any Martini that doesn't have an olive in it, doesn't exist in my book.

Delish!!! Anytime I can incorporate marshmellows into any food, I will. I'm going to try this one at my holiday party this year!

I love chocolate. I love martinis. The two combined is a match made in heaven. Thanks for the write up.

I am going to have to agree with Erik here: a chocolate martini?!

The only drink that can be called a Martini is made with gin, a touch of vermouth and 3 olives. Everything else in an impostor!

Sounds great, gonna try it next week as a football party cocktail (for the ladies)...

Well, so maybe martini isn't the best name for it, but it's super unique and sounds yummy.

Just don't call it a martini, if that bothers you. I think it's a good idea.

This sounds like an awesome drink! Thanks!

I'm going to try this for our next camping trip! Looks delicious!!!! Looking at the picture makes me lick my lips.

nyam nyam
