In honor of it being Molly’s birthday month, I decided to share my birthday cake boozy milkshake recipe! And yes, it is 100% appropriate that I’m celebrating the first year of her life with a cocktail. Ha! This mama deserves a drink or two! I love having this cocktail/milkshake when I have girlfriends over for a fun girls night or when I’m just wanting to indulge in a sweet treat! A boozy sweet treat that is!
In fact, I’m starting a new series on my blog called Ali Luvs Happy Hour! The reason it’s happy hour, is because Kevin and I can never make it out past happy hour these days! Happy hour is our favorite time to take Molly out to local restaurants/pubs and enjoy a drink and appetizers! (Responsibly of course. If I’m having a drink Kevin is the DD and vice versa.) We can’t do that during dinner time because Molly needs to be in bed by then. So happy hour is this magical time for us where we get to go out with our little girl and feel like are still living our lives the way we used to do even though we are parents now. So given that we love happy hour so much, when I was brainstorming blog ideas, happy hour just seems like a perfect fit for me! Oh and I took these pic a month ago FYI (hence the longer hair). It’s just taken me a minute to write this up and perfect my recipe!
Also, given that the Bachelorette airs tonight, this would be such a fun cocktail to whip up if your having a Bachelorette viewing party! Your girlfriends will have so much fun watching the show and indulging in this super girly drink!
Here is the recipe for my birthday cake boozy milkshake:
- 1 ounce whipped vodka or cake vodka
- 1 ounce Irish cream
- 3 scoops of ice cream Milk to thin – about 1/4 cup
- Honey and sprinkles for rim
- Whip cream and sprinkle to top!
Begin with two plates. One for the sprinkles and one of the honey. Rim the edge of the glass you are using with honey by dipping it into the honey on the plate and them put glass rim in the sprinkles. Set the glass aside while you make the drink!
Add ice cream, Irish cream, cake/whipped vodka to a bowl or separate glass and use a spoon to stir up (I don’t use a blender because I can’t control consistency as well) Add milk to thin out the ice cream so it’s more of a drink. About 1/4 cup of milk, but use as much or as little as you’d like to get your desired consistency.
Pour into the sprinkle rimmed glass and top with whip cream and sprinkles. Enjoy!
Hope you guys love this super fun drink!
