What if a Reese’s peanut butter cup was a cocktail? That’s exactly what this chocolate and peanut butter whiskey cocktail is - a sweet peanut butter cup in liquid alcohol form. And it’s so dang good.
Many peanut butter cocktails like to go the jelly cocktail route since, well, peanut butter and jelly are just about perfect together. How many of us loved a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich as a kid (and still do!)?
But nothing goes together better than peanut butter and chocolate. It’s the MOST classic dessert combination there is! Which makes peanut butter whiskey, chocolate liqueur, and chocolate bitters the perfect ingredients in this peanut butter whiskey drink.
What You Need
- Peanut butter whiskey (I use Skrewball)
- Creme de cacao
- Chocolate liqueur (I use Godiva)
- Heavy cream
- Brown sugar syrup

How to Make Peanut Butter Whiskey Cocktail

Tips on Peanut Butter Whiskey Cocktails
There are many varieties on the market and most are readily available at your local liquor store. Unsure about buying a bottle but want to try this cocktail recipe? Look for a small “airline” bottle at the liquor store. One 2oz bottle will be exactly what you need to make this recipe without investing in a large bottle.
Absolutely. Peanut butter whiskey is sweet and when served over ice, it’s delicious and one of my favorite nightcaps. I pour a couple ounces over a large ice cube (that won’t melt too quickly) and enjoy every sip.
Very much so! There are a variety of peanut butter whiskeys on the market, each with their own amount of peanut butter flavor. I use Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey because it has the strongest and truest peanut butter flavor of any pb whiskey I’ve tried. Feel free to use whatever variety you prefer in this cocktail!
You make it! Combine ½ cup of brown sugar with ½ cup of hot water. Stir until the brown sugar has dissolved. Place the syrup in the refrigerator and chill completely before using.
Nope. Using milk or half and half instead of the heavy cream will cause the drink to curdle and the texture will not be anything enjoyable.
If you don’t have heavy cream in the house, swap it out for a heaping tablespoon of vanilla ice cream. Be sure to shake your cocktail very well before straining to make sure the ice cream has time to break down and dissolve.
