S'mores Inspiration

by TJ Drake

Difficulty Level: Medium +

A cocktail meant to bring back fond memories from childhood roasting marshmallows around a campfire, cool autumn nights, and hanging with friends and family.


1.5 oz. Vitae Spirits Smoked Rum

0.5 oz Charred Marshmallow Syrup*

5 Heavy shakes of Embitterment Chocolate Bitters

Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup

Graham Cracker

Twist of Orange peel


Charred Marshmallow Simple

Char a bag of marshmallows over a fire (char to personal preference, I like’m burnt!), remove from stick and place into container. Start a simple syrup with 2 cups water and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil and add marshmallows 4-5 at a time. Continue to stir. Marshmallows WILL foam, continue to stir and take off heat when necessary. When all marshmallows have melted completely into syrup, take off burner and let cool. Pour cooled liquid through a fine mesh strainer to sift out any large pieces of charcoal.
