Birthday Cake Drop

January is my birthday month so I figured why not create a little celebratory cocktail for myself? Moreover, why not share it so everyone can enjoy a little celebratory cocktail on their birthday? It’s only right!

Truly what’s more “birthday” than cake and champagne? This cocktail is the epitome of festive and downright delicious. Vanilla vodka, Chambord and champagne make the perfect sparkling raspberry cake flavored celebration. Honestly, no birthday is needed to drink this lovely libation, just swap the rainbow sugar for white and enjoy the heavenly flavors anytime.

This cocktail is wicked simple to make. Just combine, shake with ice, strain, and top with champagne. Per usual my only tip is to use freshly squeezed lemon juice. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Hope your celebrations are as happy as mine while sipping this birthday cake drop!
