So it seems that peanuts are the best nut to eat when combined with alcohol. The patrons are gobbling up every recipe so long as there’s the salty crunch behind it. I feel like I could just set the unprepared nuts out in a bowl on the bar and they would consume them by the bushel. How odd.



  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cups of peanuts, unsalted
  • ¼ cup of butter
  • 1 cup of corn syrup



Use some butter to thoroughly prepare a thin baking sheet. In a bowl, mix the butter until it’s soft and fluffy. In a pan, combine sugar, syrup, and water over medium heat, and cook until the mixture becomes whispy when drizzled from spoon. Add in the peanuts, stir until it’s a light brown color. Add in the butter. Pour onto the prepared baking pan and spread it out as thin as possible. Allow to cool before chopping.
