Seriously. This drink is so good it should be illegal.

It is a dessert style drink–but it is OK to have it before dinner. After all it’s February, in honor of Valentine’s Day, it’s OK to indulge, I promise it’s worth it.

I am seriously in love with Red Velvet right now, though since I am gluten-free, it’s a rare occasion that I can enjoy it since most cake is definitely NOT gluten-free. However this drink is a fun way to indulge. It just might be the trick to get you through the rest of this long, cold winter!

Obviously this is a special occasion drink–it is potent–a small serving is perfect as an after dinner treat.

Here is how you make it, per my ex-bartender husband…

{Makes 3 martini’s or 5 smaller “shooter” size drinks, mix alcohol to your strength taste}

Mix in a shaker filled with ice:

4 parts Pinnacle Birthday Cake Vodka

3 parts Cream de Cocoa

1 to 2 parts Grenadine {or more for color}

2/3 a cup Cream or Half & Half

Shake very well {till your hand is too cold to continue!} and pour into chilled martini glasses.

Garnish with chocolate sprinkles if you wish.

Enjoy!

  1. Yummy! This looks like a keeper!

  2. Pinned! Yummo!

  3. It’s Five O’Clock SOMEWHERE! Is it a drink? Is it a dessert? Who cares?!?!?!

  4. no way! this looks awesome!
    by the way, I love stitch fix- got it off your blog- the first “fix” did not work out, but after “pinning” a bunch of images that i liked, the second was spot on- great recommendation
    finally- looking at farmhouse sinks – do you have any advice?

    • I know IKEA has a nice farmhouse sink–it’s very popular these days and affordable. I am sure you are looking for a large one? We saw a nice new one last summer via the Moen booth at the Haven conference, I am sure you can see their whole line-up on their website. Hope that helps!

  5. Ummm….Yes!!! I actually pinned this yesterday just form the title!
