The s’more’s long yet vague history, dates back at least to 1927 when a recipe for the more formally designated “some mores” appeared in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts, a helpful tome which also includes instructions for building 12 different kinds of campfires.

I am a fan of the classic S’mores dessert – a roasted marshmallow with melted chocolate on a graham cracker. I like to add peanut butter or swap the traditional Hersey bar with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I mean why not kick things up a little? Or why not kick things up a lot by turning the S’more into an adult beverage? This is my take on the classic dessert kicked up a bit that is perfect for the campfire or the cocktail party.


  1. 2 Parts Peanut Butter Whiskey (roughly 2 fl oz) – we used SQRRL
  2. 1 Part Toasted Marshmallow Simple Syrup
  3. Large Cube of Ice (Why not the Death Star?)
  4. 75/25 Mix of Sugar/Cocoa to Rim Glass
  5. Toasted Marshmallow Garnish
  6. Optional: “Big Bear” Bitters from Crude Bitters to taste

Simple Syrup Directions:

  1. Mix 1 Cup Sugar with 1 Cup Water and bring to a boil.
  2. Let sugar water mix simmer for 5 minutes to completely dissolve sugar.
  3. Add 8-10 Marshmallows toasted with a gas stove burner or a kitchen torch.
  4. Try not to burn your Marshmallows but don’t worry if you do. It will create small flecks in your syrup but not impact the taste.
  5. Let the mix simmer for 3-5 minutes to make sure everything is dissolved.
  6. When cool add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
