This S'mores Old Fashioned recipe is the perfect cozy cocktail for the holiday season. With smoky scotch, cocoa powder, nocino, and a flaming marshmallow, this cocktail is sure to impress.
Everyone loves s'mores, and this drink brings classic s'mores flavors to life! I love this fun cocktail in the wintertime during the holidays.
The weather has been cooling down lately, and I am definitely missing parts of summer. One of my favorite summertime treats are s'mores, so I wanted recreate those flavors in a cocktail!
The trick to this drink is using peated Scotch. Peated scotch has a rich, smoky aroma and flavor. It can be very overpowering to beginner scotch and whisky enthusiasts, but to scotch and whisky lovers, it has a cult following.
I love this recipe because it uses the smoke of the peated scotch as a key flavor of the cocktail. The smoke in the scotch combines beautifully with nocino and is balanced out by a little sugar.
