After a long winter hiatus, camping season is almost once again upon us. S’mores are a classic campfire treat, and if you like to enjoy a cocktail while you cozy up next to the fire, why not combine the two with a tasty s’mores martini?
This recipe from Delish uses a marshmallow spread, such as Fluff, so if you don’t have access to a bonfire for roasting a marshmallow, that’s no problem. Simply microwave the Fluff with a little bit of water and stir for a perfectly creamy consistency that serves as the base for the drink’s garnish.
If you do have a backyard fire pit, roast up some marshmallows the old-fashioned way for that yummy roasted flavor. This is one sweet drink, so you’ll definitely want to sip on it as a dessert cocktail. Top it off with extra roasted marshmallows on toothpicks.
The Sugar Factory at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut also offers a s’mores martini on their menu, and this recipe can be made as an alcoholic cocktail or a virgin concoction that s’mores lovers of all ages can enjoy.
Kids will feel super-sophisticated if instead of plain Jane, standard s’mores, you let them sip on a s’mores-inspired kiddie cocktail out of proper martini glasses. (Kids and glass don’t always mix, so snag some plastic ones instead.)
