Method: Drizzle Smucker’s Chocolate Flavored Syrup around the inside of a martini glass. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until combined and pour into a glass. Garnish with several peanut butter cups on a toothpick.

When creating the cocktail, a group effort by the team at 50 West, Bichun said, “We wanted to put something together for fall, something that is a comfort food, so I thought what’s everybody’s favorite candy? Reese’s. We trialed and errored it until it literally now tastes like a liquified Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.” Of its October launch, she said, “It’s been our bestseller for a little over a week now.”
