{Cocktail Friday} Birthday Cake Martini

2013 June 13

I apologize for the explosion of sprinkles on the blog this week but here’s the truth: It’s my birthday and I’ll drink cake-flavored, sprinkle-rimmed martinis, and post Cocktail Friday’s recipe on a Thursday if I want to! (Says the 31-year-old blogger who’s already sipped most of her birthday cake martini down while photographing it.)


You know, at 31 years old, you’d think I’d be shaking up something a bit much more sophisticated than a drinkable cupcake. Well it turns out that age is really just a number. I don’t feel 21 (thank goodness), but I certainly don’t feel 31 either, I just feel like me and I guess that makes getting older all that more sweet.


It could be the Birthday Cake Martini talking, but I get the feeling this is going to be the best year yet. Cheers, my friends! I wish you could all be here to celebrate, and drink these crazy delicious martinis with me.

    Cheers to the best year yet Leah! I think one should be able to drink a liquid cupcake well into their 80s.

    That sounds and looks amazing! I don’t think I could leave a drink that pretty sitting still long enough to photograph it. I also have a bad habit of drinking that vodka straight since it tastes so amazing! Happy Birthday!
