Four Roses and Opening Day - Crackerjack Cocktail #sponsored

Disclosure: I received free product for the purpose of this post from Four Roses. However, I love bourbon and all opinions are my own!

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.

Crackerjack Cocktail

  • 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.


  1. Hubby is a huge bourbon fan. He has about 60 bottles. Even a Pappy Van Winkle! I am not a big drinker but love it with raspberry ginger ale. This is my next one to try!

  2. I don't drink alcohol but find the ingredients to be quite intriguing and creative, indeed!

  3. So creative! Love seeing childhood treats all "grown up" :D
