This past weekend I celebrated my birthday. It was the big 3-5! I planned a low-key day which was just what I needed. Although I love any excuse to celebrate, this year I wanted to simply relax, watch movies, and play it cool. And that’s excitedly what I did.

However, I also realized that this special day was an excellent opportunity to celebrate life and all the good things in it, which is why I crafted this Birthday Cake Shot!

There are three main ingredients:

How Do You Make a Birthday Cake Shot?

To make a Birthday Cake Shot, you start by rimming your shot glasses in frosting and then dipping them into sprinkles. (I used my favorite cream cheese frosting, but any kind will do.)

Then, in a cocktail shaker with ice, add equal parts white chocolate liqueur (I recommend Godiva.) and whipped vodka (I recommend Pinnacle.) along with a splash of Frangelico.

Whipped Vodka is the perfect ingredient when you want a whipped cream or icing flavor in your cocktail. I actually prefer it over vanilla vodka. (If you’ve made my Jingle Juice Punch recipe, you’ll know what I mean.) I also like the addition of Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, because it has a toasty/baked-cake flavor.

Finally, pour the contents of the cocktail shaker into your prepared glasses and raise them in a toast to the birthday girl or boy!

So simple, right?

While the alcohol content in these liquors isn’t too high, you could add half & half if you want to dilute it a bit.

However you make it, this Birthday Cake Shot is a tasty and celebratory way to honor anyone’s special day. Cheers!
