National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day

…..Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly day. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times, there is nothing more underrated then a finely made PB&J sandwich. It’s filling at any one of the three major meals of the day, and it’s perfectly for a late night snack.  Obviously this is a big holiday for the kids but why not make it fun for the adults too? In honor of one of my favorite meals, we’re celebrating by featuring a few Peanut Butter & Jelly inspired cocktails for you to try at home. The sandwich is great, but it’s the flavor combination that makes it magical, so why not try it in liquid form.
