Easter Cake Cocktail

You didn’t think I’d let Easter come and go without giving you at least one holiday-appropriate cocktail, did you?  Despite the fact that Mother Nature has obviously lost her flipping mind it is in the 80s today here in Jersey (after being cold enough for winter jackets last week) I am trying to stay in the Spring/Easter spirit.  This cocktail definitely put me in the right frame of mind!!

Cocont, lemon, white chocolate…. Hmmmmm.  Kind of sounds like a liquid version of my Lemon Coconut Magic Bars, doesn’t it?!  They were a hit, and I am sure this will be too!

Easter Cake Cocktail

Ingredients:

1.5 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
1 oz Drillaud White Cocoa Creme de Cacao (or any white chocolate liqueur)
.5 oz Limoncello
2 oz half & half/milk/coconut milk
2 tsp white cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
ice
Whipped cream and sprinkles for garnish (optional)

Directions:

In a cocktail shaker, combine rum, creme de cacao, limoncello, half & half and cake mix.  Stir to incorporate cake mix into the liquid before adding ice and shaking till cold.  Pour into glass and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.  You could also use coconut flakes as a garnish instead of sprinkles.

* Please note that for these photos I doubled the recipe to fill the mason jar.

Even though I have named this drink after the upcoming holiday, it would make a lovely summer drink as well.  You could even blend in some vanilla or coconut ice cream to make a Lemon Coconut Cake Shake!

  3. OMG it hit 80 by me too and it was insane! Especially since I saw snow last night (WHAT IS HAPPENING?!). Man I wish I had this gorgeous cake cocktail this past weekend! It would’ve made my weekend ever better.

    • Isn’t it horrible?! I had to put the air on on Monday because it got so hot upstairs and then Tuesday I had to put the heat on, and yes – there was a little snow/wintry mix thing going on here too! Eeek! On the bright side though, cocktails usually make everything better! :-D
