Strawberry Shortcake Martini


Hey Slow Roasters, It's Ladies Night! This week we continue with our dessert cocktails for Ladies Night.  The Lemon Cream Pie Martini was such a huge hit that we decided to try another favorite.  Now, as I mentioned last week I may have a little love affair with cake  going on.  Chad says my favorite cake is...  One that has cake in the name, or looks like a cake, or tastes like a cake. If it resembles cake in anyway...  I love it!!!

Strawberry ShortCAKE Martini.  It meets all the requirements.  But, seriously this is a dessert cocktail that you will fall in love with.  The appearance of the vibrant red Martini will draw you near and the divine aroma will have your mouth watering.  As the first sip crosses your lips you will notice a perfectly sweet strawberry flavor, followed by a rich cake flavor and a fabulous creamy end note.

After working many hours in the cocktail lab, our mixologist and cocktail artist Chad has developed the most delicious martini I have ever had.  As a matter of fact we had a disagreement over who got to drink the last cocktail from the photo shoot, we enjoyed it that much. I know you will love it too!!!

Strawberry Shortcake Martini
serves 2
2 ounces Pinnacle Cake Vodka
1 ounce Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
1 ounce DiSaronno Amaretto
graham crackers, crushed
2 strawberries, sliced half way up the center (from the bottom) to use as a garnish

Fill a saucer with crushed graham cracker crumbs.  Set aside.
Coat the rim of 2 martini glasses with strawberry syrup.   Slowly spin the glasses, one at a time in the crumbs until well coated.

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine vodkas, amaretto and syrup.  Shake well to combine.  Pour into prepared martini glasses and garnish with a strawberry.  Enjoy!
