THE TOASTED MARSHMALLOW MARTINI
For National Toasted Marshmallow Day, August 30th

Ingredients: Vanilla Vodka, Bailey's Irish Cream, Frangelico, Half & Half, Mini Marshmallows



I don't know who first thought up the idea of toasting marshmallows but whoever it was changed camping out forever.  You can't go anywhere near a campfire without a bag of marshmallows and a knife to whittle a few toasting sticks.  It's sacrilegious not to have at least one gooey, sticky chunk of warm sugary goodness if you're sitting by a crackling wood fire.

Whoever it was, thank you.  We lift our cocktail glasses and a point a marshmallow covered stick at flames in your honor today

If you really want to have a Cocktail Campfire experience, let your guests toast their own marshmallow garnishes.  Set out a bowl of mini marshmallows, a handful of the bamboo skewers and a small votive candle for each guest and let them toast marshmallows just like they did as kids.

The History of Marshmallows:

Though today's marshmallow is a sweet confection made up of sugar, corn syrup, water and gelatin, the marshmallow plant itself was used throughout the world as a source for some form of sweet.  The Marshmallow plant was also used throughout history as a medicinal substance, primarily as a remedy for sore throats.

The first historical reference to marshmallows comes from the ancient Egyptians who, in addition to using the root combined with honey for sore throats, also extracted the sap which they mixed with nuts and honey for a sweet candy.

The traditional marshmallow recipe uses powdered marshmallow root which is difficult to obtain so most marshmallow manufacturers use gelatin or agar in place of the actual plant root.
