Like a triple tier birthday cake or a horrible birthday gift you have no way of returning, birthday cake flavored vodka might hang around your apartment long past its welcome. Sugar bomb shots topped with whipped cream and sprinkles will only get you so far. So we came up with a few cocktail ideas to exorcise that bottle from your home.
Note: Birthday cake vodka is actually pretty similar to whipped cream vodka, except with a very slight added tang of spongy yellow cake. Pretty much all of these ideas would work for whipped cream vodka and vice versa.
Celebrate Your Birthday with a Birthday Martini
There’s never a wrong time for a Martini—pre-dinner, post-dinner, breakfast, and even dessert. While many Birthday Cake Martini recipes call for other liqueurs like white creme de cacao, you can get away simply shaking together cake vodka and half & half (just stick to very dry Martini proportions—at least five to one vodka to half and half‚—to keep the mixture palatable). The result tastes like you spiked melted ice cream soup, and we’re not mad about it.
