Peanut butter and jelly are one of life’s inseparable pairs. Yes, they’re both delicious on their own, but put them together and you have a delightful flavor with the power to transport you back to your childhood. So, we have decided to share an adult take on this nostalgic duo, a PB & J Cocktail!
Concord grapes are the quintessential grape flavor. It’s what most of us think of when we recall grape flavor, likely because Concord is the grape used in most grape juices and jellies. In Missouri wine country, it’s also a common wine grape, often made in a sweet wine style. It is the perfect choice for the “J” component of this cocktail. The “PB” comes from Skrewball, a peanut butter flavored whiskey. With just a couple additional ingredients to balance the flavors, this cocktail comes together easily and quickly.
PB & J Cocktail
2 oz. Skrewball peanut butter flavored whiskey
1.5 oz Missouri Concord wine
0.5 oz Cointreau or triple sec
2 dashes Bitters
- Add all of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker or jar with a watertight lid.
- Add ice and shake until thoroughly chilled, around 10-15 seconds.
- Strain into a glass over fresh ice.
- Optional: Garnish with a tiny PB & J sandwich
July is Concord Month in Missouri. It’s the perfect time to sip on a PB & J Cocktail, although this simple cocktail is delicious any time of year. Cheers!
