Today we are making a Pineapple Upside Down Cake Martini.
A few weeks ago I was at a local bar where a friend of mine bar tends. The distributor gave him a bottle of cake flavored vodka. So we did some experimenting to see what we could come up with. We mixed the cake vodka with a variety of things but nothing was tasting quite right. Finally, we tried some pineapple juice. That is when we knew we were on to something. We added a little amaretto to the drink and it tasted just like a pineapple upside down cake.
Later, at home, I added some dark rum and the recipe was even better. The first time I tried cake flavored vodka I was surprise at how good it was. It truly tastes just like cake. Mixed with the pineapple juice, rum, and amaretto the cocktail is truly amazing.
To make a pineapple upside down cake martini put some ice in a cocktail shaker. Then add:
- 2 oz cake flavored vodka
- 2 oz pineapple juice
- 1/2 oz amaretto
- 1/2 oz dark rum
Shake it up real good and then pour the drink, strained, into a martini glass. Garnish the drink with a cherry, and enjoy!
