Happy Birthday Tini (HBT)

Day 243



Happy Birthday Tini (HBT)
5 shots out of 5


No it's not anyone's birthday today.  We're not celebrating.  I have simply been wanting to make this cocktail for quite some time now.  I saw a photo of a version of this cocktail on Pinterest a while ago and found it again today.  I followed it to the blog it came from, which led me to the blog they got it from, which led me to the blog they got it from.  The three versions of this cocktail were very similar, but I felt the need to tweek it a little bit and change it's name and decided to make my own "slightly different version".

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  I am not, NOT I say a sprinkles fan at all.  I do understand that there are a LOT of you out there who do enjoy sprinkles and to make this cocktail look festive I needed to add sprinkles.  There you go, a sprinkley rimmed cocktail.  Tonight's cocktail tastes QUITE yummy, it reminds me of of birthday cake before it's baked.  This would be a fun cocktail to make for a birthday party.  I would do the rimming of the glass way ahead of time.......cause it's a little time consuming and tricky.

Here is the recipe for a Happy Birthday Tini:

  • 1 1/2 oz cake vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz white creme de cacao
  • 1 oz amaretto
  • 1 oz whipping cream
  • 1/2 oz Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
  • sprinkles
Wet the rim of your martini glass with either water or whipping cream, I used the whipping cream.  On a plate with a good pile of sprinkles, turn the rim of your martini glass through the pile of sprinkles pressing them onto the wet part of the rim of your glass.  Set aside.

In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above excluding the sprinkles.  Shake up your mixture well.  Strain it into the middle of your cocktail glass, trying not to pour it on the sprinkle rim.  To get the lines of color effect, sprinkle some sprinkles along the side and as they drop through, they'll leave a streak!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to your next birthday party being a little bit more festive!

Cheers!!
