Kick back this summer with a S’mores White Russian. It’s everything you want in a s’mores cocktail — complete with marshmallow vodka and graham cracker milk and garnished with a chocolate drizzle, graham cracker crumbs and toasted marshmallows.
Tell me I am not alone in this: I am SUCH a snob about flavored products.
For example, give me the plain or peanut M&Ms please, and not mint or coconut or pretzel flavor. Please, for the love.
I mean, I draw the line at pumpkin spice. Can we just stop after that?
But there’s one flavor that I’ll allow, which I realized when I picked up a pack of s’mores-flavored Oreos to take to the mountains for a recent weekend trip. My fiancé even commented that was so unlike me!
I guess maybe I’m not as snobby as I thought?
I shouldn’t be surprised though because I have been super into s’mores for a couple of years now. There’s just something about that crunchy golden graham cracker, that gooey marshmallow filling, that ribbon of melted chocolate.
But there’s one area I had not yet directed my s’mores love: cocktails.
S’mores cocktails are an obvious choice because of marshmallows’ prominence in s’mores.
A while back I dreamed up this S’mores White Russian, and I had to make it immediately because it just made perfect sense.
A traditional White Russian calls for vodka, coffee liqueur and cream (or whole milk or — my favorite — half-and-half).
But the S’mores White Russian takes this classic a step further.
To start you’ll need to infuse cream with graham crackers overnight. The same way milk can take on the flavor of your breakfast cereal, this acts the same way.
You’ll also need marshmallow vodka and coffee liqueur, which you can make yourself or grab from the store.
Throw all the ingredients over ice in a glass garnished with a chocolate drizzle and graham cracker crumbs and you have a S’mores White Russian.
Bonus points if you have a kitchen blowtorch or lighter on hand to quickly roast a marshmallow or two for garnish!
It is such a decadent treat, perfect for an after-dinner dessert drink, or for something to sip at a party on a hot day.
Even more bonus points if you can enjoy it by a campfire while roasting even more s’mores!
