Peanut Butter Avalanche

Makes 2 Drinks


This thick, malted, vanilla cocktail is perfect for a summer deck party—just have lots of ice on hand so you can make several rounds.

1 cup ice
2/3 cup vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup (2 ounces) vanilla-flavored liqueur, such as Cuarente y Tres (Licor 43)
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) vodka
1/4 cup malted milk powder
1/4 cup creamy standard peanut butter
1/4 cup milk, preferably nonfat

Place the ingredients in the order listed in a blender; blend until smooth, making sure the ice cubes get thoroughly crushed up in the mix. Pour into 2 glasses and serve at once.

Almond Peanut Butter Avalanche
Substitute an almond-flavored liqueur such as Amaretto for the vanilla-flavored liqueur; add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon with the milk.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Avalanche
Substitute a chocolate-flavored liqueur such as Godiva for the vanilla-flavored liqueur.

Without the Buzz?

Omit the vanilla-flavored liqueur and the vodka; increase the ice cream to 1/4 cup and add 1 tablespoon vanilla extract with it.
