Skrewball Cocktail
Dark and Stormy Skrewball Cocktail
Print Recipe
A delicious cocktail recipe I dreamed up during an evening thunderstorm that combines the wonderful flavors of Skrewball peanut butter flavored whiskey with Kahlua rum and coffee liqueur. I paired this with a slice of grilled pound cake, topped with a dollop of peanut butter whiskey infused whipped mascarpone cream and some of our Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread.

Dark and Stormy Skrewball Cocktail
  • 2 ounces Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey
  • 1 ounce Kahlua Rum and Coffee Liqueur
  • 1 old fashioned glass
  • 1 large cube cocktail ice cube
Grilled Pound Cake with Skrewball Mascarpone Cream
  • 1 8 ounce container Mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
  • 4 teaspoons Powdered Sugar
  • 4 tablespoons Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey
  • 1 loaf pound cake
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened

Servings: servings
Instructions
Dark and Stormy Skrewball Cocktail
  1. Place 2 ounces of Skrewball Whiskey into a cocktail shaker. Add 1 ounce Kahlua Liqueur and shake to combine. Place a single large cocktail ice cube into an old fashioned cocktail glass. Pour cocktail over ice cube and serve immediately.
Skrewball Mascarpone Whipped Cream
  1. Combine mascarpone cheese, whipping cream, powdered sugar and Skrewball whiskey in a clean, medium sized mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip until soft peaks form. Cover and refrigerate until needed, up to 2 days ahead.
Prepare Pound Cake
  1. Preheat cast iron or non-stick skillet on medium heat. Cut pound cake into 3/4 inch thick slices and butter both sides of the cake slices evenly. Toast each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on dessert plate. Alternatively, you can toast the buttered pound cake slices on your grill. Grill over direct heat, 2-3 minutes a side to toast the cake and allow grill marks to form.

Ingredients
  • 3 oz. Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey
  • 12 oz. strawberry Bubly sparkling water
  • 1 slice bread, toasted
  • Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • peanut butter
  • Strawberries, for garnish
Servings: drink
Instructions
  1. To make the drink: If you have ice cube trays, freeze a strawberry in each cube earlier in the day. If you don't have ice cube trays, just put some regular ice in highball glass. Pour 3 oz. Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey over the ice. Top with strawberry Bubly sparkling water and stir.
  2. Do you need instructions to make the PB & J sandwich? Not judging, we're all just trying to survive a pandemic and some days, even making a sandwich is hard.
  3. Cut toast in thirds. Spread peanut butter on one of the thirds, then spread that with Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread. Repeat. Stack those two slices together, then top with the naked piece of bread to make a triple decker PB & J. Stab with a fancy toothpick if you have it.

The Perfect Margarita
The Perfect Margarita
Print Recipe
A smooth and delicious cocktail using reposado tequila. "Reposado" means rested or restful, meaning the tequila has been aged two months to a year in oak. Aging in white oak gives the tequila a mellow flavor combined with the flavor of blue agave, making reposado the ideal tequila to choose for The Perfect Margarita.

Ingredients
  • 8 oz. Key lime juice
  • 8 oz. Simple syrup
  • 6 oz. Reposado tequila
  • 2 oz. Orange Liqueur
  • 1 Lime, sliced in wedges for garnish
  • Coarse salt to rim glasses, if desired
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Pour lime juice, simple syrup, tequila and orange liqueur in to a quart size canning jar. Screw lid on jar securely and shake well.
  2. Moisten the rim of each glass with a piece of lime, then roll the rim evenly in coarse salt, if desired. Fill glass half full of crushed ice and pour margarita over ice.
  3. Garnish with a fresh lime slice.
  4. Relax and enjoy with Unicoi Preserves, cheese, charcuterie, crusty bread and friends.
  5. Tip: To make a simple syrup, just mix equal parts sugar and water together in a sauce pan and heat it until the sugar is dissolved. For example, heat 1 cup of water and stir in 1 cup sugar until dissolved. Refrigerate until cold. We like to make a large batch and keep it on hand in the refrigerator in a mason jar.
