Peanut Butter

Why so nutty? 2 tablespoons of peanut butter provides the perfect balance for a shot. It's the thicc and nutty heart of this liquid sandwich. Too little and you'd miss the peanut punch; too much, and you'd need a spoon. No peanut butter? Try almond butter for a different nutty nuance!

Jamming it with 2 tablespoons of jelly isn't just for toasts. It brings a fruity sweet contrast to the peanut butter. Reduce it for a less sugary kick, or if you're wary of a sugar overload, swap it out for a sugar-free alternative to keep the sweetness in check.

Vodka, at 1.5 oz, is that clear-headed friend who doesn't steal the spotlight but makes sure everyone has a good time. It's the liquid courage that binds our PB&J in holy matrimony. Less vodka, and the shot becomes kiddish; more, and you're on a one-way trip to Tipsy Town. Flavored vodka could add an interesting twist!

Smooth operator 1 oz cream adds lushness and helps all the ingredients blend harmoniously. Skimp on it, and the texture may be off; overdo it, and it's more 'cream with a dash of...' situation. Lactose intolerant? Coconut cream could be your ticket to creamy town.

Ice is as needed to chill out. It's the zen master of temperature control in the mixology dojo. Forget the ice, and your shot might be lukewarm in excitement. Too much and you're sipping on a slush fund of flavors.
