Lookie here, it’s my 25th* birthday. So, in honor of me, today’s drink is drinker’s choice. Y’all are grown, so you should make your own choices. Also, it’s totally what I would do. “I’m not doing that” is basically my life motto. So, live like Lynx today and only do stuff you wanna do. Whatever that may be. Unless you wanna do murder or something like that. If that’s what you want to do, go see a therapist instead.
If you’re one of those people who either enjoy themed cocktails, hate yourself, or both, you can make this Birthday Cake Martini.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 ounces whipped vodka
3 ounces coconut cream or half and half
1 ounce white chocolate liqueur
1 ounce amaretto
2 Tablespoons of honey
One of those devices used to pump your stomach
Hangover cure of your choice – for me, super spicy pho.
Dip the rim of your glass in honey and then the sprinkles
Put the rest of the stuff in a shaker, shake. Sing Shake it Off by Taylor Swift while doing so. This is optional and really fun.
Pour in your rimmed glass and enjoy. Or, alternatively, you could look at for a moment, realize you’re grown and have the ability to drink alcohol and eat birthday cake whenever the hell you want, pour your drink down the sink (Hey, that is a really cute rhyme and also the first time I’ve recommended tossing out a cocktail) and make yourself something you like. It’s up to you. This week is all about choices.
If you would like directions without all my remarks, you can find the recipe here. And, hey, I’m sure there is nothing at all wrong with this drink, I just don’t like sugar. So, while you fools are drinking cake, I’ll be sipping on the finest boxed wine I can find. Keeping it classy, y’all.
*Also, I am actually 37. No one, and I mean no one, believes I’m 25. It’s just fun to pretend.
