Golden Grahams, their old commercial from the late 70's started singing in my head. "Oh those Golden Grahams, oh those Golden Grahams, golden honey, just a touch, with grahams golden wheat..." Reminiscing the mornings that I would eat Golden Grahams cereal before school not leaving a drop of the delicious cereal milk left in the bowl, I knew that this challenge was up my alley. Fast forward many years, I thought that an adult version to enjoy that sweet, delicious, cereal milk would be appropriate.
Golden Grahams Campfire Cocktail
Makes 1 drink
2 cups Golden Grahams cereal
1 1/2 cups half and half
Pour 1 1/2 cups half and half over 2 cups of Golden Grahams cereal. Place in the refrigerator to soak for two hours. After two hours, pass through a fine strainer to collect the cereal infused half and half. Toss the cereal. You will have more infused half and half than needed for one drink.
1 ounce chocolate, melted
1/2 cup Golden Grahams cereal, crushed
Turn the martini glass upside down and dip and twist in the melted chocolate. Then, dip the glass in the crushed cereal. Set aside.
2 ounces chocolate cream liquor (I used Belle Gabrielle Chocolatier Chocolate Cream Liqueur)
2 ounces Golden Grahams infused half and half
1 ounce bourbon whiskey, I used Winchester
Fill shaker with ice, pour in all of the liquid ingredients and shake to mix. Fill the rimmed martini glass. Top with a skewered marshmallow and light with a torch to roast.
Enjoy and "Have a Golden Day!"
