S'more Martinis: No Campfire Necessary
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...
- 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.
