I have fond memories of eating s’mores with my grandmother. They weren’t enjoyed around or even cooked over a campfire, but the memory is really what matters… and of course the taste! She wasn’t known for her cooking, but her s’mores definitely left a lasting impression on me.

A classic treat enjoyed by many, starting in our childhood years and continuing on for ages. Food brings us together and evokes memories. I’m sure everyone has a memory of at least one time they were eating a s’more and if not that, something else. We laugh, we cry – we eat!

S'more Martini

This s'more martini is a fun adult twist on a classic dessert. A perfect cocktail year round!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4C chocolate syrup
  • 2 graham crackers, finely crushed
  • 2 marshmallows
  • 1/2C marshmallow vodka
  • 1/2C chocolate milk
  • 1/2C heavy cream

Directions:

  1. Add chocolate syrup to a small rimmed plate. Add finely crushed graham crackers to a second rimmed plate or low bowl. Using two 8oz martini glasses, carefully dip the rim of one into the chocolate sauce. Immediately dip in graham cracker crumbs. Repeat with second glass. If desired, drizzle chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass. Place in the freezer to harden for 30-60 minutes.
  2. Drink mixture may be prepared ahead, by combining ingredients and chilling until ready to serve. Alternately, fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and half of the remaining liquid. Shake well and strain into one of the prepared glasses. Repeat with remaining liquid and glass. Serve with a marshmallow and toast, if desired.
  3. Enjoy immediately.

    OK, I definitely didn’t know marshmallow vodka even existed until 2 minutes ago. I’m not usually a huge fan of buying a bottle of flavored vodka, since I feel like I make two drinks with it and then it just sort of sits around and collect dust. *But* I feel like this martini is so perfect for the holidays, that who could resist? I have a feeling a bottle wouldn’t last long at a holiday party!

    • Rachel — December 4th, 2014 @ 5:49 pm

      It would absolutely disappear at a party! :)
