S'moretini Recipe

Updated: Dec 21, 2019


UPDATE - We've landed on a name, S'moretini!


First, I am not set on this name...so it may very well change as time goes by. But the inspiration behind this drink will never change and that was actually the marshmallow. After all the holiday baking was done, I was left with a bag of marshmallows and wanted to do something with them and I thought to myself, a cocktail. This started as cold hot chocolate, which evolved into Mexican cold hot chocolate and finally mid testing the graham cracker rim was added and the S’more Chocotini was born.


This cocktail has a lot of steps, but they are easy. There are a few shortcuts that can save you time and once the chocolate sauce is made, it’s quick to make yourself a second round.


Ingredients:

¼ Cup Simple Syrup

  • You can buy pre-made simple syrup at the store, I used Masters of Mixers brand.

  • You can make it, it’s equal parts water and sugar (1 cup of each normally) - Combined in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved and allow to cool.

¾ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

4 Teaspoon Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder

3 Teaspoon Cinnamon

  • If you are not a huge Cinnamon fan, I recommend taking this down to 2

⅛ Teaspoon Ground Ginger

⅛ Teaspoon Ground Clove

⅛ Teaspoon Chili Powder

¼ Cup Water

  • For rimming your glass

Graham Cracker crumbs

  • For rimming your glass

  • You can buy Graham Cracker crumbs or you can smash them yourself with a rolling pin and a plastic bag.
