When it comes to taking shots for a party, or for a drinking game, I have to say I have officially out-grown taking the cheap (nasty) Vodka shots. Nowadays, if we ever go to a bar, my friends and I ask for "shots for weenies" meaning something that isn't going to burn all the way down.

This post goes along with our cocktail video series where I teach you the basics of liquor. The goal of this series is to get you more familiar with the basic in’s and out’s of common liquor (how it’s made, how to buy a bottle you’ll like, and how to make mixed drinks with it). By the end of the series, you’ll be a pro at mixing up fun and inspiring drinks in your home bar. Be sure to follow along on YouTube!
Skrewball Whiskey Shot Ingredients
The main reason this peanut butter cup shot was born, was from an amazingly delicious peanut butter whiskey called Skrewball. I really have to give credit to my bestie who's a bartender and introduced me to Skrewball.
This shot involves just three main ingredients:
- Peanut butter whiskey: My obvious preference is Skrewball, but there are other peanut butter whiskeys on the market if you can't find Skrewball near you.
2. Kahlúa: Or really any coffee-flavored liqueur. This is going to add just a hint of coffee flavor and richness to our shot.
3. Milk: And finally, your milk of choice! I personally use almond milk, but dairy or soy milk would work as well. You could also substitute for cream if you wanted a heavier, richer tasting shot.

Bar Equpiment Needed
If you're making these Skrewball whiskey shots at home for yourself and a few friends, I love these tall, slightly curved shot glasses. They make the drink look very elegant! However, if you're hosting a party, it's probably best to purchase some disposable glasses (just make sure they're 2 ounces each).

How to Garnish Your Skrewball Whiskey Shots
Adding the garnish to these peanut butter whiskey shots is completely optional, but highly recommended! I mean come on...look how freaking cute they look!
Melt down a few of the Reese's peanut butter cups in the microwave for 45 seconds intervals, mixing in between each interval until chocolate is completely melted. Pour out some gold sprinkles onto a shallow plate. Dip just the top of each shot glass in the melted chocolate, and then immediately into the sprinkles until well coated.
For the final touch, dip the bottom of a Reese's cup into the melted chocolate, and place on the rim of the shot glass. Hold for a few seconds to give the chocolate some time to dry.
