Boozy Birthday Cake Shots


adapted from

Yield: 1 shot (but you can make up to 6 at a time in a standard martini shaker)


1 ounce cake flavoured vodka (e.g. Pinnacle or Three Olives)

1 teaspoon dry white cake mix

1/4 ounce whipped cream flavoured vodka (e.g. Pinnacle)
1/4 ounce chocolate liqueur

1/2 ounce half & half (10.5-18% fat cream)

whipped cream (for topping)

sprinkles (for topping)


Shake all ingredients in a martini shaker with ice and strain into sprinkle-rimmed (optional) shooter or shot glass and top with whipped cream and more sprinkles.

Sweetapolita's Notes

  • The dry cake mix dissolves right into the drink when you shake it up in the martini shaker, I promise.
  • If you can only find the cake vodka, you can always use more in place of the whipped cream vodka or chocolate liqueur--it's good both ways! Or, so they tell me. *ahem* You actually can't go wrong--you can improvise with any sweet liqueur along with the cake vodka. For some reason it all seems to work. Again, so they tell me.
  • Okay, I know I now sound like the Pinnacle poster girl, but if you click here, you can find 5 pages of cake vodka drink recipes!
  • Please don't cake & drive. xo
