Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail

Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail (May 1, 2011)

I saw some Caribbean peanut punch in our local grocery store yesterday and immediately thought of a pbc cocktail. A quick search of the Internet showed I was not the first! However, several variations used Kahlua and I wanted to use white creme de cacao. There are a number of recipes for homemade peanut punch on the web as well; the store-bought version does not add any spices beyond vanilla and lends itself nicely to this treatment. It tastes like a blender drink but no blender required!

Chocolate syrup – line the glass
2 oz peanut punch
1 oz white rum
1/2 oz white creme de cacao

Shake over ice and strain into chocolate-strewn cocktail glass.
