  • 1 1/2 ounces Bourbon you can use smooth bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce Peanut Butter Whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce Crème de Cacao or Chocolate-flavor Whiskey
  • 2 dashes Chocolate Bitters
  • 1 dash Cherry Bark Vanilla Bitters optional
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter for garnish


  • Chill Your Glass:
  • Begin by placing an Old Fashioned glass in the freezer to chill while you prepare your drink.
  • Combine Ingredients:
  • In a mixing glass, combine the bourbon, peanut butter whiskey, crème de cacao (or chocolate whiskey), chocolate bitters, and cherry bark vanilla bitters if using.
  • Fill the mixing glass with ice, reaching about three-quarters full.
  • Stir Well:
  • Stir the mixture gently yet thoroughly for about 30 seconds. This method ensures that your drink is well-chilled and slightly diluted, smoothing out the strong flavors.
  • Prepare the Glass:
  • Remove the Old Fashioned glass from the freezer.
  • Optionally, you can rub a small amount of peanut butter on the rim or add a thin layer at the bottom of the glass for an extra peanut butter flavor.
  • Strain the Drink:
  • Strain the cocktail into the chilled Old Fashioned glass over a large ice cube. A large cube melts slower, keeping your drink cool without diluting it too quickly.
  • Garnish and Serve:
  • Garnish with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. You can place it on the rim of the glass or on a small skewer.
  • Optionally, add a small drizzle of melted peanut butter over the top for a dramatic effect.
