Kentucky Campfire: Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by Lock & Key

by Sydney "Brown Nose" Blanchard

It's no secret. I have a pretty bad sweet tooth. My dentist can't keep me away from candy, despite my ever-increasing number of fillings. It's a real problem.

It can probably go without saying that I love dessert-y drinks. I can't really do fruity drinks, but I will always opt for a sugary, boozy concoction.

Kentucky Campfire at Lock and Key Whiskey Bar

That's why I ordered the Kentucky Campfire the last time I was at Lock & Key.

The combination of house-made peanut butter simple syrup, bourbon, hazelnut liquor, Creme de Cacao, and hickory pecan bitters results in a cocktail that tastes exactly as you'd expect it to: warm, peanut butter boozy deliciousness.

Jay and Blair said they'd prefer this as a shot, and I'll admit, its strength and its sweetness would make it fun to shoot, but for me it works really well as a cocktail.

Heck, I'd pair this with a fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
