Birthday Cake Milkshake Martini Recipe
Now you can have your cake and drink it too.
I came across this recipe for a Birthday Cake-flavoured vodka milkshake. At first I cringed at the thought of vodka and milk together - would that even work?
But then my love of kitchy cocktails and cake batter finally won me over. Ever the helpful Chick I strive to be, I thought I'd take one for the team and test drive this bad boy. Ah, the sacrifices I have to make for this job...
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Whipped Cream
- Cake Vodka (if you can't find this at your liquor mart, try vanilla vodka or one of the cream-based liqueurs like Irish Cream or Frangelico. Keep in mind that this may make your milkshake a darker colour)
Step 1: Add your ingredients into a blending cup (I used the Magic Bullet because it's easiest for single servings, but any blender will do). For one serving, I used 3 medium scoops of ice cream and a few splashes of milk, but you can vary this according to the thickness you prefer.
Step 2: Add 1 ounce (30 mL) of vodka/liqueur per serving. The cake vodka is very smooth and tastes similar enough to the vanilla ice cream, so for a bigger jolt of flavour I suggest an additional half-ounce. Blend until smooth (a few seconds).
Step 3: Pour mixture into martini glass (or small wine goblet as pictured here). Top with whipped cream and sprinkles. And since it's a birthday cake milkshake after all, pop a candle in for good measure. If your whipping cream is firm enough, it will easily bear the weight.
Alternatively, you could rim the glass with sprinkles (but frankly I didn't have the skills to pull that off... or was that a result of the taste testing along the way? I'll never tell).
This milkshake goes down easy like a Sunday morning, so buyer beware - you'll probably need to make yourself a second glass, just for Quality Control testing purposes.
Now that you have this big bottle of cake-flavoured vodka, you may wonder what you'll pair it with next. Again, being a very helpful person, I spent much of the weekend testing out a few options for you:
Diet Cake = Coke Zero spiked with Cake Vodka
Screwdriver = Orange Juice spiked with Cake Vodka
Cake Nip = Cake Vodka shot served in a fancy schmancy schnapps glass
I also have it on good authority that this vodka is delicious in baked goods. How do you take your Cake?
