What’s a better combo than PB&J? How about a Peanut Butter Whiskey combined with a jelly cocktail?



Today we bring you the Peanut Butter & Jelly Old Fashioned. It’s a mashup of childhood nostalgia and grown-up taste that works shockingly well together. This one is on the sweet side, so if that isn’t what you are into, sorry!

This Peanut Butter and Jelly cocktail recipe is refreshing with subtle hints of nuttiness and grape jelly.

One of our favorite things to do as cocktail bloggers is to walk around the grocery store and look for all new products. The fall is an especially good time of year for this because every single company is trying to pumpkin spice us to death. Now, don’t get me wrong, we love pumpkin spice, but there are just some things we won’t eat!

Peanut Butter Whiskey

In all fairness though, we hadn’t seen Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey in the stores yet before we started hearing all about it. We started hearing from friends asking us what we thought, to clients asking us to come out with cocktail recipes using it. Unfortunately, we hadn’t even tried it yet!






We finally got our hands on some peanut butter whiskey and set to work on a cocktail! We looked to our sons’ favorite treat for inspiration for a cocktail that is the spirit of a childhood staple: the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Grape Simple Syrup

We used homemade Concord grape syrup and the drink seems to be the adult version of the lunchbox favorite without. Of course, we didn’t want it being cloyingly sweet, but it is on the sweet side. So, we added some salt to the mix to take away all the sweet, but of course some is still there. This combo is the perfect combination, and a great way to end a meal.

There’s something comforting and satisfying about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, right? The classic nutty and tart combo brings forth memories of school lunches, afternoon snacks, and learning to first assemble something in the kitchen, as we have taught our boys to do!



What Ingredients are Needed for the PB&J Cocktail?

  • Peanut Butter Whiskey
  • Salt
  • Jelly Simple Syrup

PB&J Cocktail

We hope you give this adult twist on a classic treat a try, and we love the pb & j flavors of this one very much. The peanut butter whiskey will be used many more times I am sure, so bring on some more fun cocktails for sure! This one, being an Old Fashioned, it’s super easy to make and so flavorful, but the whiskey is of course the adult flavor we were going with!
