S’moretini Cocktail Recipe
Sometimes adults just want to have fun and what better way to recreate childhood than with this S’moretini Cocktail Recipe!
When I first considered including a cocktail every Friday for a series I had no idea what to expect but it’s become a tradition and one I love. Some days are more difficult to bring that drink to fruition and today was one of those days but having this S’moretini Cocktail recipe at the end of it? Priceless.
Schedules and timelines coincided and I was without a new drink to share. So I’m punting because this one is SO much fun and since it was only the 2nd cocktail of a series that will soon have it’s own blog (YES!) I thought many might have missed it.
As summer winds down (which I just have to accept), this is a great little cocktail that speaks of all things summer. Campfires, toasty marshmallows and certainly a sweety, frothy adult beverage. Try this S’moretini with your friends and tell me you don’t start singing Kumbaya!
I also love having a S’moretini Cocktail in front of the fire on a cozy winter evening…that’s like being outside around a fire right?
Say S’mores and I most often think Girl Scout camp. I’ve mentioned I’m from a big family; as the oldest daughter I always had a lot of responsibility so getting away was especially exciting for me. Going to my Grandma’s for a weekend was huge but going to Girl Scout camp for a whole week? Heaven.
So this drink evokes all of the special memories of friends, staying up late, sneaking to meet a boy from the neighboring Boy Scout camp and yes…my first kiss. In the annals of history it may not go down as something especially romantic but even if only a peck on the cheek, he was cute enough to keep the memory cherished for all of these years.
This cocktail might just start some new memories so whether it’s old, new or yet to come? Cheers to them all!

Whoa. This sounds amazing! Perfect to say goodbye to summer with!
So creative! Love this!
Thank you Laura!
This looks so delicious!!
Thanks Ami; I know it’s my daughter’s favorite; we both bring to it those sweet Girl Scout memories too!
Is that a cocktail or an adult dessert? I love it!
It is both…perfect huh?
Barb, so nice to meet you today @ block party. Looked u up when i got home. Really love your site. Hope to try some of your recipes this fall. See u in a few weeks. Carole
Great to meet you too Carole and other new to me neighbors. Looking forward to a girls nite; hopefully the first of many! Barb
Whoa this sounds really good! I love s’mores so I’m sure I would love this!
This is just as wonderful the second time around! Glad to hear that the cocktail blog is still in the works and looking forward to the official launch. Have a great weekend Barb.
P.S. Don’t think I was on Pinterest when this was first post so it’s a Pin for me 🙂
Summer really is over. Hate to admit it. But this smoretini might solve my blues!
I’d be happy to join girl scouts again if I could eat cookies and drink this. What a perfect dessert for a fall meal! Thanks, Barb!
I have a specialty martini we call butterscotch truffle…..equal parts , I use 1/3 cup each, of vodka, butterscotch schnapps, and dark creme de cocao. …put in shaker with ice…shake it really well…pour into Martini glass end enjoy…..
That sounds decadent…which of course I would love! Thanks for sharing…Barb
Wow, an elegant offshoot of the smore-
I have got to try this. Go it pinned for my readers!
Fun Fact: they now sell Marshmallow flavored vodka (both Pinnacle and Smirnoff have their own version), try mixing that with the Chocolate Liquer and Half and Half, it may offer a more authentic taste!
I do know that but I would probably infuse a bit of vodka with some marshmallows first. I can’t see myself using marshmallow vodka for much else!
you hit the jackpot with this one!!! What an insanely great idea!
It was fun and best? It was Good!
Way to go Barb! I love it! Your photograph is so amazing not to mention the drink! You inspire me!
Taylor…is that really you? I just told people on Twitter today that none of my family and friends ever comment on my blog. I’m OK that you made a liar out of me. Thanks so much…and you are actually close enough I could actually make one for you! Forget coffee…let’s drink!
Your little girl will always be your little girl, regardless of how old she is. And how lucky she is that you are making this awesome cocktail for her. You rock, Barb!
I think so Dara. She is more of the mindset that it’s no longer true. Wait til she has a daughter huh?
oh my heaven!! will you PAH-LEASE make me one of those!!
Love this idea! Great way to keep the spirit of summer alive. Your photos are gorgeous, too.
Thank you so much. Photography is a work in progress so I really appreciate your kind comment.
Your S’moretini looks incredibly delicious!! I want to take a big sip right now 🙂
A HAPPY hour in deed! Love your S’more Martini 🙂 it looks delicious!
Thanks Diane…now to get all of the girls together and raise one. Wonder if I can find a thousand glasses?
Beautiful photo Barb! I would really prefer one of these round the campfire rather than an ooey gooey marshmallow sandwich. 🙂
Yes, me too. Has the same warmth but in a different, more adult way. Definitely thought a girly drink but my neighbor’s hubs loved it…guess we all have a soft spot for s’mores.
From time to time, I will indulge in a dessert cocktail. And boy you have me craving one right now. Looks fab-u-lous!
That’s exactly what we did Brian…something to sip after dinner. Funny thing is…I most often crave the ‘other’ s’mores about this time of year. When I’ve got a fire in the fire pit but it’s still nice enough to sit outside with a jacket on and make them.
Oh yum, love this! Can you now make a Samoas cocktail? 🙂
Bet I could but thinking next week I have to make a more ‘serious’ drink. Serious like in champagne and liqueur serious. 🙂
What a fabulous creation and great pictures too. Your smore martini would be a hit at any party!
Thanks so much Judee…is epitomizes a ‘fun’ drink!
Oh myl that IS creative 🙂 Want a sip of that right now…
Thanks Yuri but now I’m craving some homemade granola. Mine just ran out…oh the horrors!
Want to adopt me? I promise to always come home and drink a s’more martini, I won’t even leave a sip left in the glass. Yuuuuuummy!
I’ve been thinking about doing that! Promise?
Yummy looking cocktail. Double duty — dessert and drink.
HA! Maybe triple tonight…I might be drinking dinner. 😉
Barb, this is really genius! All those great childhood flavours in a cocktail form. Really good. And I bet it tastes even better than it sounds. As for your daughter, the day will come. They always come around.
One can only hope Mike. You know it is good…not unlike a White Russian but with the chocolate/marshmallow/graham addition…yeah, it’s s’moresish for sure!
Sounds like the perfect birthday drink to me!
I thought so…so I celebrated her birthday. Which is most appropriate after all…I’m the one who remembers it. 🙂
omg, this looks delicious! make me one?
Absolutely. It’s done…when can you be here. Hurry, I might down them both!
Just checked my watch and I do believe it’s almost cocktail time!
It most certainly is now. Cheers Sylvie.
Well, I didn’t think a smore could be improved upon until I saw this. Looks so great Barb.
Thank you my friend. Wish you were here…I have two in the fridge and I’m ready to break them out now!
This is such a fun, playful take on s’mores! Just love it. Added a link. Am loving your friday cocktail hour!
Thanks Katherine. It is S’more; the Adult version. Not the X-Rated version though…a bit too sweet for that rating!
OMG Babr – I want one…right now! YUM.
A martini glass just isn’t big enough to slurp up this deliciousness. Give me a tub with a straw!
Hehehe…that’s my boy!
This has to be the most decadent cocktail I have ever seen. You’ve gotta love Happy Hour, especially on Friday! Have a great weekend. 🙂
Thanks Gwen…and be sure to check each Friday and add a favorite of yours too!
Who needs camping??? Luv this!
I think everyone remembers their first S’More and it ususally does seem to be associated with scout camp and some adventure. An iconic American concoction for sure. Never would think to see it in a drink! Love the chocolate rimming of the glass with the crumbs too. Brilliant!
With the seasonal change to fall I’ve added a Pomegranate Martini recipe. Cheers!
Now THAT is my kind of S’more!!! Definitely less messy too!!
I have the same memories Barb (well, except for the kiss!) … hope Lauren enjoyed the cocktail!!!
Loving this Happy Hour Friday series!!
I guess I should have called it a peck huh? But the sneaking out, the cuteness factor…all of them contributed to it being more than just that. Ahh…memories.
What a clever idea! Sounds like a perfect drink for a late Friday afternoon.
Perfect. I have one in front of me and can attest to that.
Hoping your daughter had a nice birthday celebration. If she knew a few of these were waiting for here she would have beaten a path to your door immediately! This martini looks like something I’d really enjoy and your photographs of it are wonderful. Cheers to a lovely weekend Barb.
Very cool idea! I am on my way home and going
To make a Dirty martini and will toast you Barb!
Dirty or otherwise…here’s to you too Mona…cheers!
Wow sounds delicious. I bookmarked to try this week end
Probably my favorite part? That slightly soaked charred marshmallow. Yum.
A few years ago, I was given a recipe for home made ‘Cointreau’ — it was SO good (and so potent we could barely stand up after sampling).
In a large glass jar with a wide mouth and a lid – pour in an entire bottle of a good vodka. (Pure 100-proof alcohol will work very well also). Take a large, good orange (Seville, navel) – wash it and put a strong piece of string through the middle of it. Suspend the orange across the top of the jar’s mouth – taping the string down on each side – the orange should not touch the alcohol in the jar. Put the lid on tightly and leave the jar in a cool spot with the orange suspended, for one month. Do not open.
At the end of one month: Prepare your own simple syrup, remove the orange from the jar and stir in the syrup until well mixed.
Serve over ice and sip slowly!
If you are feeling VERY daring, (sit down first) and eat the orange!
This orange liqueur tastes best when chilled.
This sounds easy enough and I just happen to have a bottle of vodka and a big old orange. Now to find that jar!
Mmmhhh, I prefer that drink to smores… Beautiful!
It’s the best of both worlds Rosa!
