Camping drinks just got classier.
You may remember, that a while ago we tried the great American tradition, S'Mores. With not a lot of luck. It's going to be a work in progress sort of experience. (Read about it here)
But I have come across a fantastic alternative, that requires me NEVER to leave home just to taste the S'More experience!
Its origins are from without doubt the best looking food blog I have seen.......With luscious looking food, beautifully photographed, this site has me going "wow".
The name of the site is How Sweet It Is and from this site I have discovered Smoretini Shooters.
All the following photos are from this site. The recipe too!
Graham crackers are required for this recipe, so Australians will need to use some other not too sweet, plain biscuit. It's not the be-all and end-all of this recipe.
It talks in ounces, and we in Australia, talk in ml, so 1 oz = 29.57 ml.
S’moretini Shootersmakes 1 (2 ounce) shooter, easily multiplied
1/2 ounce marshmallow vodka (or vanilla, whipped cream or cake flavored vodka)
1/2 ounce Godiva chocolate liqueur
1/4 ounce Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur
3/4 ounce cream/half and half
chocolate syrup or hot fudge
graham cracker crumbs (or seek alternative sweet, plain biscuit)
vanilla frosting for glass rimming
Dip the rim of you glass in a bit of frosting, then dip into graham cracker crumbs.
Pour about 1/2 teaspoon chocolate fudge into the bottom of the glass.
Combine vodka, Baileys, Godiva and cream in a shaker (or water bottle with lid) with ice and shake for 15 seconds. Pour into glass. Top with mini marshmallows skewered on a toothpick.
For 8 shooters or 2 martinis, you will need: 4 ounces of marshmallow vodka, 4 ounces of Godiva chocolate liqueur, 2 ounces of Bailey’s and about 6 ounces of milk. Measurements obviously may change depending on your own preferred tastes.
Note: if you don’t have any leftover frosting for glass rimming, I think something sticky like maple syrup or agave will work.
So, what do you think? Does this look like one of the best drinks ever to have around the campfire? Camping and S'Mores just got a whole lot more interesting. Would you like to try this? Leave a note below!
