The Ultimate S’mores Martini

the ultimate S'mores Martini recipe

I LOVE marshmallows, always have, always will and if they are toasted then I love them x100!
I got given a kitchen torch for my birthday… naturally I now want to set EVERYTHING on fire , I mean perfectly toast everything.
I needed an excuse to use my new toy and making crème brûlée was just too obvious, so I sat pondering my options and scanning the kitchen shelves. I had graham crackers, I had chocolate, I had vodka… AHA! all I needed was marshmallows and I was on my way to a S’mores martini. Continue Reading
