Salty Nut Shot

This Salty Nut Shot is the ultimate peanut lovers shot! I’ll show you how to use real peanuts and peanut butter to make this fun shot!

Maybe that didn’t sound so good.

But the shot is really, really good. I promise.

What else would I call a peanut flavored shot with salt around the rim?

It’s salty and nutty and very, very tasty.

So yes you’ll have to be a fan of peanuts to like this shot. And be a fan of salty things. But if you do like both – then this is the drink for you.

A Salty Nut Shot.

It’s a catchy name, right?

I combined Frangelico (one of my favorite liquors) with NutLiquor vodka, some peanut butter and a little cream. And shook the hell out out it with some ice. You can see all the ice chips floating to the top of the shot. It’s pretty awesome.

And just to amp up the peanut and salt flavor a little bit more, I rimmed the shot glass with crushed peanuts and kosher salt.

Are you still with me here? I know you’re still processing the name…

You can serve this as a dessert shot with some coffee, or during appetizers with some wings. It’s perfect for drinking with spicy food – it puts the fire right out.

As I have mentioned before, I am always sneaking off into the kitchen and whipping up shots of some sort. No one even asks where I’m going anymore – they all know.

But there wasn’t a party going on when I came up with this one. It was just 5:30 on a Tuesday. Just the wife and I.

We played around with some different ratios of the Frangelico and the Nutliquor Vodka until we came up with the perfect flavor combination.

I think it’s perfect anyway.

So get your peanut loving friends together, make up some Chicken Satay Bruschetta or some Thai Pulled Pork Sandwiches and serve them up some of these Salty Nut Shots!

    Cracking up over the name, but let me tell you I’m intrigued! I love unique stuff like this. I’m also jealous of your cocktail napkins! I need to do that. Cheers!

    Haha – Thanks Leah! It was meant to be funny. But they are really good! You should do the napkins, they were really affordable. I can send you who I used if you need the info.

      So sorry to hear that! Are you able to find peanut butter whiskey? It’s pretty popular right now and you could substitute that.
