1 oz Cake-Flavored Vodka
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1 Splash Grenadine


  • Add vodka and pineapple juice to a shaker with ice, and shake.
  • Strain into a shot glass. Make sure there is still a tiny bit of room on top.
  • Add a small splash of grenadine and wait for it to settle at the bottom of the glass before serving.

Mix it Up

If you can’t find any bonafide cake vodka, vanilla-flavored vodka will work in a pinch. To really craft things up, use homemade vanilla-infused vodka, fresh pineapple juice and homemade grenadine.
