When it comes to martinis, everyone has a preference. Perhaps you like them strong and dry, like a classic martini, or fruity, like a swishy new drink at your local cocktail bar. But if you prefer your martinis as an after-dinner dessert, then, boy, do I have a recipe for you!
An advance of an upcoming consumer-facing event for chocolate-lovers called Salon du Chocolat New York, Mozart Chocolate Liqueur and bartender Josue Romero teamed up to create the peanut butter and cookie dough martini (yes, really!) of your dreams. This quirky drink calls for peanut butter washed Scotch, chocolate cream liqueur and cookie dough liqueur.
The drink, called Get Off My Isle, will take a bit more time than your average cocktail, as you’ll have to create the peanut butter-washed Scotch and the cookie dough liqueur yourself. In fact, you’ll have to start making it in your kitchen about 48 hours before drinkin’ time, so be sure to plan ahead. However, creating both the Scotch and liqueur seem pretty easy. (And then you can brag about how you made it all yourself!)
Take a look at the full recipe below:
Get Off My Isle
2 ounces peanut butter washed Scotch
1/2 ounce Mozart chocolate cream liqueur
1/2 ounce cookie dough liqueur
1/2 ounce ponche de crema (a cream-based liqueur)
1/4 ounce Angostura bitters
Dark chocolate shavings, for garnish
To make the peanut butter-washed Scotch:
Mix 2 Tbsp of peanut butter with 1 cup of Scotch. Stir and let rest for 48 hours. Stir again and place in the freezer for 8 hours. Scoop the fat from the top and strain with a cheesecloth.
To make the cookie dough liqueur:
In a large bowl or container, combine 1 cup of edible cookie dough, 1 bottle of Everclear (or another high-proof clear spirit) and 3 teaspoons of cookie dough extract (water-soluble). Stir and let sit for 24 hours. Stir again and place in the freezer for eight hours. Scoop the fat from the top and strain with a cheesecloth.
Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a Collins glass filled with ice. Garnish with dark chocolate shavings.
If you love a decedent cocktail but don’t like peanut butter or cookie dough, how about a sugar cookie martini? While it definitely works for the holidays, I’d argue that sugar cookies are suitable year-round!
