A peanut butter whiskey sour gets a makeover with goat cheese and a homemade sour cherry mix.
I have always been a beer drinker for the most part. And I still am a beer drinker, but I’ve gotten into craft cocktails a lot lately. It’s a lot like cooking — there are easy, simple, and classic recipes. But there are those where some experimentation is necessary, and it doesn’t always work out. I still have nightmares about the cake-infused vodka I tried.

This was one such experiment, and it also involves infusion. But this time, my liquor of choice was Sqrrl Peanut Butter Whiskey. And goat cheese. For real.
If you’ve ever had peanut butter whiskey, then you know it is delicious with some chocolate liqueur. It’s also amazing in your morning coffee if that’s how you like to start your day. Not that I’ve ever done that.
But it has the potential for more. In this case, goat cheese. It’s easy — you take a log of goat cheese and a bottle of PB whiskey. Put the cheese in a jar, pour the whiskey over top. Seal it up and let it sit. A few days is good. But if you can let it go a week or two, that’s even better. Leave it at room temperature and shake every other day or so.
Now, this will not look pretty. The goat cheese will melt into the whiskey and will look like sludge. But when you open it up, it will smell amazing. Like peanut butter but with a creamy tang. It sounds very weird. But it’s delicious.
It’s delicious on its own, but when you mix it with an easy sweet and sour mix, it’s like a drink you’ve never had before, even if you’ve had a peanut butter whiskey sour.  Make this up for a party, and you are guaranteed friends for life.
