After a few unfortunate experiences with a certain caffeinated alcoholic beverage last semester, we at Bwog decided to turn over a new leaf. Our New Year’s Resolution? Keep it classy, baby. Indeed, Bwog has been sharing our appreciation of the more refined tastes of the Columbia culinary community for quite a while now. Today, however, we begin our journey into uncharted territory—the world of mixology. Join us as we explore fancy drinks with the Columbia Bartending Agency in our new weekly feature! This week, the CBA’s Managing Director David Shiovitz introduces us to the Peanut Butter and Jelly:

One of the first drinks I fell in love with is the Peanut Butter and Jelly.  The liquid form of the childhood favorite sandwich, this drink has all of the grown up sophistication of your typical cocktail, without the sticky mouth result.  This drink can be served shaken on the rocks (one of the CBA staff favorites), as a martini, or scaled down to a shot.


¾ oz Vodka

¾ oz Amaretto

¾ oz Frangelico

¾ oz Chambord

3-4 oz Cranberry Juice (to fill cocktail)


Shake ingredients on ice.  For martini, strain into a chilled class.  For the shot form, use ¼ oz of each liquor and ½ oz cranberry and strain into a shot glass.
