This PB&J cocktail will revive a childhood favorite lunch staple, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This drink turns a classic into a cocktail.
How to Make a PB&J Cocktail
Making this peanut butter and jelly cocktail is as easy as mixing two ingredients together.
First, you’ll need a chilled highball glass. Stick it in the freezer for a couple of hours before use or you can store them in the freezer.
This drink is a spin from the recommended way to make a Skrewball cocktail. Brittany Yeng, one of the co-founders of Skrewball, recommends pairing the whiskey with cranberry juice. If you do decide to pair the whiskey with cranberry juice, pick out an unsweetened juice or one with a minimal amount of sugar. Fruit juice is often overwhelmingly sweet and you don’t want to overpower the Skrewball with too much sugar. I recommend buying the unsweetened juice and then adding in simple syrup to taste.
Choose your type of “jelly” in the form of a seltzer. My favorite is a raspberry-flavored White Claw, but you can use other types of “jelly-flavored” seltzers for this drink, such as a strawberry-flavored Bud Light seltzer. Another option is a mixed berry Truly seltzer. Choose your favorite and pour it into your chilled glass. Then take a shot (or maybe a little more, I won’t tell) of Skrewball peanut butter whiskey and pour it into your seltzer of choice.
Turn this Cocktail into a Shot
Looking for something a little stronger? It’s easy to turn this peanut butter and jelly drink into a shot.
Instead of filling up your glass entirely with the seltzer, make a lowball glass and fill with a shot of Skrewball whiskey. Then add in an ounce or two of your seltzer. Mix with a spoon. Garnish with fresh berries, strawberries or raspberries.
