An Adult Version of the S'MORES COCKTAIL

Everybody and their uncle has a S'Mores cocktail, myself included. It's one of those sweet drinks that appeals to the inner child in all of us. But sweet is kind of the whole flavor profile magilla in most recipes (my original one included) and today I'm going to revisit my recipe with the adult palate in mind.

Yes, I used chocolate liqueur and sweet marshmallow vodka, you kinda have to, but I'm using Pinnacle Vodka's Marshmallow Vodka which actually does have the flavor of marshmallows. I do have a chocolate coated graham cracker crust rim, but I mixed that with a bit of the Smoked Bourbon Salt that I used in the recipe which brings in that smoky campfire quality. Then I added a few dashes of The Bitter Truth's chocolate Xocolatl Mole Bitters to bring in a little spiciness that appeals to mature taste buds. Both can be found at Amazon (see links below).

It's time the S'More Cocktail grew up, right?
