Smoretini Recipe

A couple weeks ago, in honor of National S'mores Day (August 10th), my friendly neighbor came over to give me an interesting recipe: a martini made to taste like a S'more. A "smoretini," if you will. (And I think you WILL.)

The weekend after that, he had me over to his patio to sample a pitcher of said s'moretinis he'd made to celebrate just that occasion (albeit a tad late, at that point). Now, I don't drink martinis. In fact, I don't even drink liquor (read: booze; not wine or beer). Okay, one of my signature drinks is a Bloody Mary, but that's different.

Anyway. So we sat on his patio and sipped smoretinis in the warm aftermath of a summer's day. Correction: he sucked down 3 (that I know of); I had ONE smoretini. I took one sip and thought, "hello, I'm drunk."

While definitely tasty, I think the recipe he was using – he followed it exactly – could use more Chocolate Liqueur (it didn't QUITE taste like a S'more):

S'moretini Recipe

1 64-ounce pitcher
32 ounces vodka
16 ounces Chocolate Liqueur
1 sleeve of graham crackers (as needed)
1 jar marshmallow creme (Marshmallow Fluff)
1 bag miniature marshmallows (he used full-size)
1 bag wooden skewers
16 martini glasses (less, if you're re-using as we did :)

Pour vodka and chocolate liqueur into pitcher and stir. Refrigerate for several hours (until very cold). Crush graham crackers and place onto a flat plate.

Rim martini glasses with marshmallow creme. Dip glasses into graham cracker crumbs (just as you would for margarita glasses).

Place marshmallows on skewers and toast over an open flame. Pour 3 ounces of cold drink mixture into each prepared glass and serve with toasted marshmallow for garnish.

Enjoy in moderation --- they're strong!

Not that it "goes" with a s'moretini drink, but if you're looking for another recipe, try the one I made for National Spaghetti Day!
