Thirsty Thursday: Cake Batter Martinis

Things are about to get ridiculous. But it’s almost my birthday, so I’m allowed to be ridiculous.

There is no point in even trying to pretend that this drink is in any way, shape or form a normal or practical cocktail. It’s ridiculous and extravagant and is really only socially acceptable to be consumed on ridiculous and extravagant occasions, like birthdays. This cocktail also required a lot of hunting around for the required alcohols, but 3 stores later, I prevaled. My grocery store stocks whipped cream vodka, but not creme de caco. Glad to see what’s a priority for their buying audience.

Now, I must admit I am a little wary of cream based cocktails, unless The Dude and bowling are involved then cream based cocktails are not only acceptable, but required, but this cocktail might have changed that slightly. This is by no means an ‘everyday’ drink, it’s more like a once a year drink, thus why it is perfect for birthdays.

Cake Batter Martinis (from How Sweet Eats)

  • 1 ounce amaretto
  • 1 1/2 ounces Pinnacle whipped cream vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces creme de cacao
  • 1/2 ounce Godiva white chocolate liqueur
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • assorted sprinkles (nonpareils work best)
  • frosting
Using your finger, coat the rim of your glass with frosting – make sure not to miss any spots! Dump sprinkles on a plate and press glass rim into sprinkles, pressing to adhere. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for about 30 seconds. Strain into glass and drink!
