Cake Vodka Martini
I hope you all had a very happy Easter! We definitely did, especially since we changed things up this year and instead of our traditional Easter dinner, we did it up Polish-style. We had fresh kielbasa and sauerkraut, my mother-in-law and I made pierogi using her family’s recipe, and my babcia, my mom, and my sister made so many cabbage rolls that we barely put a dent in them. Everything was delicious, and of course one of the best parts about having all that food is that our freezer is full of the leftovers!
Hosting for nine people was a lot of work though…and sadly I feel like I spent more time in the kitchen than anywhere else. At the end of the day Sunday, I had a nice big glass of wine to relax. Having recently fallen in love with Three Olives’ cake vodka though (it really does taste like a slice of white cake!), next time I will definitely make one of these. I’ve even used Kahlua in place of the chocolate liquer since I love my coffee, and it was pretty darn good. Hope you enjoy it, too!
For the rim:
- Your favorite white chocolate or vanilla icing
- Nonpareil sprinkles
For the drink:
- 2 ounces cake vodka (I used Three Olives brand)
- 1 ounce amaretto
- 2 ounces of your favorite chocolate liquer
- 1 ounce cream
Spread the chocolate or icing on to a small plate, and flip your glass upside-down into the icing to coat the rim. Then, quickly dip the glass into another small plate filled with sprinkles to coat the rim. Add the rest of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into the glass. Makes one serving.
