More about Skrewball

Skrewball whiskey is a flavored whiskey that tastes like peanut butter (really!). If you’re a whiskey lover, well: you might not love these peanut butter whiskey drinks. Because there’s loads of added sugar in the stuff! Here’s a bit more about this intriguing type of whiskey:

  • Skrewball peanut butter whiskey is a flavored whiskey made with real peanuts. The company was founded by husband and wife team Steven and Brittany Yeng, based in San Diego, California. Skrewball launched in 2018 and has become very popular in the US.
  • Skrewball has a thick, sticky texture. It tastes very sweet, with a strong peanut finish and notes of caramel, coffee and vanilla. Honestly, it’s more like drinking Baileys than bourbon.
  • Is Skrewball really a whiskey? Whiskey technically should be 40% ABV when it’s bottled, and Skrewball is 35% ABV. It’s labeled as a “flavored whiskey.”
  • Will I like Skrewball? It depends. If you’re a whiskey connoisseur, probably not. But if you love sweet alcoholic drinks and think you don’t like whiskey…you probably will!

Skrewball Old Fashioned

Peanut Butter Whiskey Old Fashioned (& More!)

  • Author: Sonja Overhiser
  • Prep Time: 2 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 minutes
  • Yield: 1 drink 1x


The Skrewball Old Fashioned is a fun way to drink peanut butter whiskey! Add bitters and garnish with a cherry.


  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) Skrewball whiskey
  • 4 strong dashes Angostura bitters
  • Soda water, to taste (optional)
  • For the garnish: orange wedge and cocktail cherry
  • Large ice cube, for serving (try clear ice!)
  • Cocktail cherry for garnish


  1. Add the Skrewball whiskey and angostura bitters to a glass and swirl to combine. Add a large clear ice cube.
  2. If desired, add a splash of soda water to taste: this tones down the sweetness of the Skrewball and is reminiscent of a Wisconsin Old Fashioned. Either way, the flavor is much sweeter than a traditional Old Fashioned. Garnish with an orange wedge and cocktail cherry.
