Peanut Butter Whiskey Cookie Shot Recipe

All the delicious peanut butter cookie flavors inside a shot!

If you haven't jumped on the peanut butter-flavored whiskey train yet then what are you waiting for? Peanut butter whiskey has become one of my favorite liquors to play around with when creating new cocktails and shot recipes. Peanut butter whiskey drinks for the win. It just tastes so good- even just by itself poured over a large ice cube!

I've seen plenty of recipes for a peanut butter and jelly cocktail and a peanut butter cups cocktail. While I am a huge fan of those combinations, I feel like peanut butter sometimes deserves to be in the spotlight by itself- because it's so amazing. I have yet to see a peanut butter whiskey cookie recipe so I felt like I should change that.

Peanut butter cookies are one of my favorite cookies. The peanut butter, brown sugar, and vanilla together, and then a bit of sea salt sprinkled on top is basically perfection. And these shots are exactly those same flavors- except liquid form!

Anybody that is a fan of peanut butter cookies or the nutty flavor peanut butter whiskey is sure to also be a fan of these shots. This is such an easy recipe so let's get to it!

Peanut Butter Whiskey Shot Recipe: Ingredients

✽ Peanut Butter Whiskey: The peanut butter component of this simple shot comes from the whiskey and is the most important component. So make sure you pick up your favorite peanut butter whiskey for these shots.

Some of my favorite brands include Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey, Skatterbrain Peanut Butter Whiskey, Shepherd's P'Nutty Peanut Butter Whiskey, and Sheep Dog Peanut Butter Whiskey.

✽ Vanilla Vodka: When baking, the best ingredient to have around is vanilla extract. It's especially good in some homemade peanut butter cookies! Mixing the peanut butter whiskey and vanilla vodka is a really good flavor combination.

✽ Sea Salt: A small pinch of sea salt sprinkled into the final shot gives you that wonderful sweet and salty combo and takes these shots to the next level.

✽ Peanut Butter: In order to get that actual peanut butter taste, just a bit of peanut butter is put on the rim of the shot glasses. After taking the shot, simply lick off the peanut butter for a flavor bomb!

✽ Brown Sugar: I also like to put a bit of brown sugar on top of the peanut butter that is on the rim of each shot glass. This really makes the shot taste like a homemade peanut butter cookie.

How to Make Peanut Butter Whiskey Cookie Shots

Peanut Butter Whiskey Shots: Questions & Information

✽ I can't find vanilla vodka, what else can I use?

A good substitute for the vanilla vodka would be whipped cream vodka.

✽ Peanut Butter Cup Shot

In order to turn this peanut butter cookie shot into a Reese's peanut butter cup shot, replace the 1/2 ounce of vanilla vodka with 1/2 ounce chocolate liqueur.

Another fun way to change up this recipe is to replace the vanilla vodka with hazelnut liqueur!

✽ Peanut Butter Jelly Shot Recipe

For a spin on a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, replace the 1/2 ounce of vanilla vodka with 1/2 ounce fruity vodka- like grape, strawberry, or berry!

Another great option is to use fruit liqueurs such as a black raspberry liqueur (Chambord liqueur) or strawberry liqueur.
