Baseball season is officially upon us! GO SOX!
|Me, in college, with friends, showing our Red Sox pride!|
To be honest, I've never been huge on baseball. Going to the games when I lived in Boston (and possibly sneaking tiny alcohol bottles into the stadium in my bra, hah) was a ton of fun, but I never really paid attention to the game otherwise.
But now that I'm far from home, seeing my "home team" on tv is kind of fun. I wear my sox shirt with pride while I sip a cocktail (sans bra bottles) and munch on traditional game day foods, like Crackerjacks.
Four Roses was kind enough to send me a bottle to celebrate Opening Day, and I was inspired to make this cocktail. It has all of the flavors of the baseball snack, with the rich bourbon taste of Four Roses.
- 2 oz Four Roses Bourbon
- 1 oz armaretto
- 1 oz butterscotch schnapps
- 1 tsp peanutbutter
- 2 tsp caramel + more for garnish
- Crackerjacks, for garnish
-Prepare the glass: pour in a bit of caramel.
-Put the rest of the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously--you want the peanutbutter and caramel to fully blend into the liquid.
-Strain well into the glass. Float Crackerjacks on top.
