We made a simple four ingredient Old Fashioned cocktail. Stroopwafle S’mores cocktail with the caramel cookie infusion instead of graham crackers.
S’mores are loved by adults and kids alike, right? But in this case it will be just for adults in this S’mores cocktail! S’mores remind us of camping and outdoor time. (Altho I hate camping, Jay loves it!) I may love s’mores but I don’t want to have to camp in the cold and dirt to enjoy them, or even sometimes don’t want to go to the firepit in the backyard to enjoy them!

No campfire? Not a problem! We roasted our marshmallows over our oven burners. We think it really drives the s’mores flavor home, and then put infused the toasted (maybe charred) marshmallows in some Mezcal. The smoky toasty flavors were amazing!
Toasting the marshmallows are really important to make this drink a S’mores cocktail.
We all know a S’more is a toasted marshmallow sandwiched between 2 graham cookies with a chocolate bar. There are some variations we have seen – with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Peppermint Patties, or peanut butter, bacon, cookie butter, caramel, or using rice crispy treats as the crackers.
In this case we deviated from the typical graham crackers, because well, we can. We love a good graham cracker, but we had just gotten some stroopwafles at the store, and felt we needed to use them in a cocktail, so this idea was born. We took a stroopwafle and broke it up and infused it into some aged rum. So we used a 4 year aged rum, but an 8 year would be even darker and richer if that’s something you want to do instead.
So, we ended up with a cocktail full of chocolate, caramely stroopwafle and rum, toasted marshmallow and smoky mezcal to sip on. And, of course, we garnished it with the perfect cute little stroopwafle s’mores!
We think one of the best things about s’mores is the messiness and stickiness, and the fact that you build them over or around a fire, so you’ve got the smells of winter, wood smoke and toasted flavors all around you. This was definitely what we ended up with!
Your drink will be a bit cloudy, because of the marshmallows and stroopwafle infusions, but it will taste great, we promise! To bring out the earthiness of the mezcal, we used chocolate bitters. We used Fee Brother’s Aztec Chocolate Bitters in this, but Chocolate Mole or Coffee Chocolate bitters would be delightful in this as well.
