Golden Grahams Campfire Cocktail

When I opened the package that arrived for this challenge from General Mills and saw the box of 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
by Tonda
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!"
