Tips
  • I love colorful sprinkles so I use them to garnish the rims of the martini glasses. Here’s how: Dip your finger in simple syrup and rub it around the rims of the glasses. I try to keep the syrup on the edge of the room and the front of the glass directly below it, but don’t go overboard. Sprinkle some colored sprinkles on a small shallow dish and roll the prepared rim in the sprinkles. Shake off to remove any loose balls.
  • If you don’t want to buy a new flavored vodka like whipped cream vodka, you can substitute it with vanilla vodka.
  • As far as I know, Godiva has discontinued their liqueurs, which I’m using in this cocktail. So, if you can’t find it, just buy another white chocolate liqueur.
  • I’m using DiSaranno amaretto but you can buy any brand of almond liqueur. Or, if you’re not fond of almond liqueur, you can substitute white creme de cacao for it.
  • When you pour the ingredients into the prepared martini glasses, don’t pour over the sprinkled rim.
  • Another good way to garnish this cocktail is to spread a little vanilla frosting (instead of simple syrup) around the rims of your glasses before dipping them into the colorful sprinkles.

How to make this birthday cake martini recipe

Pre-step

Get a cocktail shaker and fill it halfway with ice. Get a measuring glass, two martini glasses, whipped cream, and colorful sprinkles.

If you’re going to garnish the cocktail with rainbow sprinkles, do so now. See helpful tips on how.

After measuring out the ingredients, add them to the cocktail shaker.

Step one

Gather the ingredients – whipped cream vodka, white chocolate liqueur, and almond liqueur.

Step five

Place the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain, pour, and divide the liquid between the two glasses. Be careful not to pour over the sprinkle rims.

Step five

If you’re going to add whipped cream, now is the time to do so. I squirt a good dollop in each glass. When you add the whipped cream, make sure to squirt it to touch the inside of the glass to help anchor it.
