It's cocktail time! I would say it is always cocktail time, but that hasn't been true lately. It's been wine time. Last year I was drinking mostly bourbon, but now I'm on a red wine and champagne bender. I've been trying to stock a wine stash, but it's been difficult keeping an inventory! Now that my bar cart is all set up, my liquor is out and I see the different bottles I've purchased over the years. I've purchased a lot of liquor and it is a little embarrassing. However, I've been reintroduced to my collection. One bottle that I was reintroduced to was my toasted marshmallow vodka.
I bought the vodka to make s'more martinis over a year ago. I made a batch but took pictures in the dark, so I never posted the recipe. It was time to remake the martinis. I spiced things up with a mini bottle of Frangelico; right decision!
Dessert cocktails are the best; they are sweet, creamy, and boozy. Plus they pack a punch. This drink in particular does not mess around. After buying marshmallows and graham crackers I enjoyed one of these on a Sunday afternoon. Needless to say, I didn't get anything done the rest of the day. Get out your mini blow torch and your shaker, because it's cocktail time!
