Cupcake Cocktail

Cupcake Cocktail
I invited a few friends and a few of my blogging friends over for a dessert themed brunch last Saturday. I thought I’d better serve a cupcake cocktail to top it all off! It was supposed to be a cupcake martini but I don’t own any martini glasses!

Cupcake Cocktail
I bought a bottle of Pinnacle whipped cream vodka while I was in the US. I wish I’d been able to find the cake vodka though. I topped off the drink with some brightly colored sprinkles! Sprinkles or frosting on the rim would also be a nice touch.
I bought a cocktail shaker and jigger to measure everything.
Enjoy your liquid cupcake! Thanks to my girlfriends for coming and to AndreaSarah and Jayne.

    That looks nice, never tried vodka. MM wonder if it would work with rum.

    I'm totally stealing the idea of sprinkles on the rim!! Love it!

    Please (pretty) please may I come round to yours for brunch?? Your brunches sound amazing- I've always thought savoury items are over rated when it comes to brunch!
