I just inhaled one of these before sitting down to type. So, I’m just a wee bit tipsy. And on a sugar high! Please bear with me.
Let me back up a bit. A week ago, my friend Jenny sent me a friendly, little care package with this beauty inside.
It’s cake. flavored. vodka!!!!! Of course, I knew right away I had to feature it on the blog. When brainstorming recipe ideas, I thought about how my soon to be mother-in-law always says she prefers to eat her calories rather than drink them. Nonsense I say! And, with my new cake flavored secret weapon, I set out to prove her wrong.
The thing about my sweet mother-in-law is that she has a serious weakness for cake. And ice cream. She’s not big on alcohol, but gets pretty worked up for a hunk of cake with a scoop of ice cream on top. I’m thinking a cake flavored vodka milkshake will have her happily slurping down those calories.
So, I set out to make my fancy, big girl milkshake and because I cook and photograph in the mornings and hate wasting food, I am tipsy at 10am. I suppose there are worse things to be than buzzing before noon.
Ingredients: (1 milkshake)
3 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
1 oz cake flavored vodka (or more- this stuff goes down nice and easy)
1/2 cup milk (more for a thinner shake)
Directions: Scoop the ice cream.
Pour in the vodka and milk.
Give it a good stir.
Coat the rim with sprinkles. Use a little melted ice cream to make them stick.
Add some whipped cream and more sprinkles. For a birthday occasion, add a candle.
Sure beats any birthday cake I ever ate.
