Peanut Butter and Jelly Martini

I've had all the standard Absolut bottles in my collection for awhile, but really haven't played around with the Absolut Kurant much yet. It has a very unique flavor and I wanted to find a combination that showcases that. After sniffing the bottles and tasting it again, I decided that a nut flavor would be a nice compliment.

After some trial and error with amaretto, Frangelico, and Nocello, I was soon drawn back to my bottle of Nutliquor used in the Elvis Martini. The peanut butter and currant flavors mixed 50/50 tasted exactly like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. So here you go...
  • 3 oz NutLiquor Peanut Butter Liqueur
  • 3 oz Absolut Kurant
  • 1 Tsp Blueberry Preserves
  • Creamy Peanut Butter
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Rim the glass with peanut butter. Shake the other ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Strain into the glass.
