11 Peanut Butter Whiskey Cocktails You’ll Be Nuts About!

Have you been thinking of making cocktails with peanut butter and whiskey? This list of peanut butter whiskey cocktails is for you!

When you combine the smooth, caramel-y undertones of whiskey with the salty-sweet taste of peanut butter, you end up with a luscious libation that is far more than the sum of its parts. 

While it’s tasty enough to sip on its own, you are sure to go nutty for some genuinely outstanding peanut butter whiskey cocktails. 

Wondering what drinks to make with peanut butter whiskey? 

We’ve got you covered with 11 irresistible peanut butter whiskey recipes. 

These run the gamut from classic flavors, like the Peanut Butter & Jelly Cocktail and #9 to tantalizing takes on your favorite boozy beverage, the Peanut Butter Whiskey Sour.

If your favorite candy comes 2-to-a-pack and in an orange wrapper, we’re happy to announce that you’re now able to recreate that treat in a lowball glass. 

This drink has a complex taste palette, including chocolate, coffee, and walnut bitters, but those only work to enhance that classic PB taste.

Is there any pairing more notorious than PB&J? 

If you’re still wondering what to mix with peanut butter whiskey, just start with its most famous compadre!

Speaking of nostalgic childhood flavors, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Whiskey recipe is worth having to wash the blender afterward. 

Load it up with classic milkshake toppings, like cookie dough bites, Reese’s cups, and whipped cream, for a dreamy treat that would put an old-fashioned soda shop to shame.

This dessert cocktail is pure decadence in a glass, boasting notes of brown sugar, ground cinnamon, Irish cream, coconut, and just a splash of orange bitters. 

The actual piece de resistance in this drink is the brown sugar simple syrup because it pairs beautifully with the whiskey’s sweeter undertones. 

You can make your own at home with some brown sugar and water, warmed on the stovetop until the sugar completely dissolves.

In scrumptious harmony, three simple ingredients come together to create the Peanut Butter Espresso martini– coffee liqueur, fresh-brewed espresso, and peanut butter whiskey. 

It’s the perfect tipple for brunch any time of year. 

Enjoy it hot when the winter chill sets in, then switch back to iced during the heat of summer. 

You can also swap out the coffee liquor for a chocolate option to create a peanut butter mocha martini.

The OG Manhattan is a mingling of bourbon, bitters, and sugar, so it just makes good, clean sense to let peanut butter whiskey tag in. 

It’s sweet enough to trade out half of the sweet vermouth for dry and the perfect excuse to skewer a few mini peanut butter cups for garnish.

Got a bad case of the winter blues? 

Warm-up from head to toe with a few Apple Cider Peanut Butter Whiskey cocktails, or as I like to call it, “a hug in a mug.” 

You won’t hear any judgment from us if you decide to forgo any non-life-threatening plans you had for the day and curl up with a good book under your favorite throw blanket.   

The notes of cinnamon make an impeccable companion to sweet and nutty whiskey, providing a hint of spice that cuts through the richness. 

I love that the rim is coated in peanut butter before taking a quick dip into a brown sugar mix. 

Every sip tastes like a bite of homemade peanut butter cookies.

Not a fan of coffee or cider, but still want to enjoy a seasonal hot cocktail? 

The Boozy Salted Peanut Butter hot chocolate – complete with three different kinds of milk – is anything but your average package of cocoa mixed with hot water. 

Instead, it’s dressed to the nines in dollops of whipped cream, crumbled Nutter Butter cookies, and a drizzle of to-die-for peanut butter sauce that just might convince you to lick the spoon once you’ve finished making a batch. 

Other garnishes worth mentioning include mini chocolate chips.

Technically, this is marketed as a Halloween refreshment meant to be enjoyed while watching Scream. 

Well, if retailers are allowed to put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving is over, then we reserve the right to drink Halloween cocktails all year round… 

Especially if it’s this mouthwatering. 

Peanut butter whiskey combines lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and dark sweet cherry sauce for a not-too-tart update on the traditional cocktail that inspired it. 

This little number packs a significant PB punch. 

Of all the drinks to make with peanut butter whiskey, this combination of coffee liquor, cognac, vanilla almond milk, cream soda, egg whites, chocolate bitters, and a garnish of powdered peanut butter just might be the tastiest. 

As if those flavors weren’t enough to convince you, the drink is visually pleasing. 

The tall cap of whipped egg white “fizz” creates lovely layers and adds a textural component that will dance across your tongue with every slurp.

Your weekend coffee routine is about to get a whole lot tastier.

The Peanut Butter Coffee Cocktail is ridiculously simple. 

Prepare your morning cuppa as you usually would, then add a shot of coffee liqueur and a shot of peanut butter whiskey. 

That’s it!

This recipe is infinitely customizable, so you can get creative with your choices of what to mix with your coffee and peanut butter whiskey drinks. 

Give it a whirl with your favorite syrups, sugars, sweet additions like whipped cream.
