This is embarrassing to admit, but I don't own a cocktail shaker. Yep, this girl who loves her cocktails can't properly make them at home. I've been looking at recipes like this for ages on blogs and Pinterest, but I've always been too cheap to buy the fancy liquors. Not anymore, I'm going to be all about the cocktails now. They are just so much fun!
Real talk - I made this a cottage cheese container. It has a tight fitting lid and everything turned out fine when I shook the drink over the sink, only minimum leakage. Whatever, it's my apartment, I can make drinks how I want to!
I had originally planned on making these to go with the Black Bean Sliders for our roommate dinner, but that was NOT going to happen. So I waited a few days and then the perfect evening rolled around. I had just finished making 48 Oreo cupcakes for an order and the last episode of Dexter had arrived from Netflix. The cocktail was made, the DVD was in, the couch was calling my name, and I enjoyed!
Don't let the sprinkles fool you! This cocktail packs a punch! It is smooth and delicious, but it is also strong. The cake batter martini would be fantastic if you only want a drink or two and want to show off your fancy pants!
Cake Batter Martini Adapted from Sugarcrafter Yield - 2 cocktails
leftover frosting sprinkles
1/4 cup (4 ounces) cake vodka (Three Olives) 1/4 cup (4 ounces) chocolate liqueur (Godiva) 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) amaretto (Disaronno) 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) cream handful of ice
- Spread some frosting around the rim of your cocktail glass and then dip in a shallow container of sprinkles. Set aside.
- In a cocktail shaker add the vodka, liqueur, amaretto, cream, and ice. Shake, shake shake, and pour into your glass.
- Enjoy responsibly!
Since writing the above I went out and bought a cocktail shaker, I wanted to be a cool kid!
