A Halloween Cocktail! The QUInutButter Cup with QUI Tequila

I love this time of year: crisp, clear, sunshine-y days, the fiery yellow and gold leaves underfoot, and, because…HALLOWEEN(!), we can finally allow ourselves to indulge in obscene amounts of candy.

Peanut butter cups have always been one of my all-time favorites. When you’re a kid and you hit a house with full size peanut butter cups, you know you’ve hit the mother-load. This year, instead of making yourself ill from downing half a bag of “snack sized” treats, try this elevated peanut butter cup inspired cocktail made with QUI Tequila, dark chocolate, and hazelnut liqueur.

    That looks really nice with mixing the peanut butter inside! That’s a new try for me.
