Peanut Butter Cup Martini

peanut butter cup martini

A lot of people out there like to wind down at the end of a long hectic week with friends and a drink in hand. But while others mull over some crappy beer, you and your tastebuds can dance the night away with a delicious Peanut Butter Cup Martini.

Beverage World claims that “there is only one peanut butter based spirits product in the US,” and it’s called Castries Peanut Rum Creme. It’s made of Madagascan vanilla, roasted peanuts, spices, cream and St. Lucian rum. You can read a review of it on Scotte’s Rum Pages. It is summed up as “an exquisite liqueur, with an outstanding balance of tastes.” Sounds good to me!

I think discovering this liquor has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for chocolate and peanut butter beverages…

Recipe after the break. It is from The Polished Palate.

Ingredients
2 oz Castries

  • This looks like one of the drinks, like a Guinness, that is so darn rich and delicious but way too filling to have more than one. I’ve never heard of Castries, but I will find it!

  • just came home with a bottle that the liquor store ordered for me. Deeeeelicious ! You have to lose the vodka though since castries is rum. Try what I did…3oz of castries and 1oz of Godiva choclate liquor……YUMMY !
