Campfire whiskey cocktail


As the summer winds down and the crisp fall air takes over, there's nothing more quintessential than a toasted s'more...which is why I crafted this delicious cocktail reminiscent of a campfire with complex elements folding in each ingredient - chocolate, marshmallows, and Graham Crackers.

 

INGREDIENTS

Toasted marshmallow simple syrup

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

6 toasted marshmallows


Campfire whiskey cocktail

*Makes 2 cocktails

1.5 shots Ellington Reserve Slated Caramel Whiskey

1.5 shots Whiskey

6 - 8 dashes Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters

2 Tbl toasted marshmallow simple syrup

Crushed Graham Crackers

Melted chocolate for garnish


DIRECTIONS

Toasted marshmallow simple syrup

  1. Using tongs, toast marshmallows over your stove top until charred. Remove from heat and set aside.

  2. Dissolve sugar and water in a pot on the stove. Once fully dissolved, place toasted marshmallows into simple syrup and mix with a wooden spoon until fully dissolved.

  3. Strain into a mason jar and let cool. This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.

Campfire whiskey cocktail

  1. Pour Ellington Reserve Slated Caramel Whiskey, whiskey, chocolate bitters and toasted marshmallow simple syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until combined. Set aside.

  2. Take your glasses and put face down so the rim is covered in melted chocolate. Place crushed Graham Crackers on a separate plate and roll so chocolate is covered in Graham Crackers as a garnish.

  3. Strain the cocktail into each glass and enjoy!
