CHOCOLATE CAKE CLUB
another life obstacle i’ve had to face is my birthday: it’s two days after christmas. claudia’s birthday is right around (sometimes on) thanksgiving. i figured i would knock out two birds with one cocktail. although not literally, because drunk birds are annoying… just ask uncle gabby. without further ado, i present a club that everyone will want to join: the chocolate cake club.
1 1/2 shots three olives cake flavored vodka
1 shot godiva chocolate liqueur
1 shot club soda
cake or cookie sprinkles
fill a martini glass with ice and water. set aside to chill. combine vodka, chocolate liqueur and a healthy squirt of chocolate bitters in a cocktail shaker. add ice. shake vigorously.
add the club soda and stir. pour the ice water out of the martini glass and strain the contents of the shaker into the glass.
garnish with whipped cream and any sprinkles you may have on hand.
*optional: cake candle
