I’ve totally had one of those days!  A day where a huge, costco-sized jug of laundry detergent falls of the shelf and proceeds to spill every where kinda day.  A day where I do my best to get some things done around the house and one hurdle after another continues to present itself.  Today, is definitely a day for a cocktail!!  This Strawberry Shortcake Martini is the PERFECT remedy on a day like today!

This cocktail is the perfect drink for spring and could be an excellent at Easter brunch or even viewing the Kentucky Derby, should you have something other than a mint julep.  Made with strawberry puree, cake flavored vodka and cream liquor, it packs a punch but also has a creamy, sweet texture that is sure to please.

Strawberry Shortcake Martini
Recipe Type: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Author: Erin Indahl-Fink
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 2
Perfect for when you’re in the mood for a sweet, creamy cocktail! Made with strawberry puree, and cake vodka, its a dessert and drink in one!
Ingredients
  • 4 oz. cake flavored vodka
  • 4 oz. cream liquor
  • 1/2 c. fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 c. half & half
  • ice
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, slice about 1/2 cup of strawberries, and sprinkle with the sugar. Let the strawberries macerate (the sugar will help the juice come out) for about 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator. Add the strawberry mixture into a food processor or blender and puree. Set aside.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, add the ice, vodka, cream liquor, and half & half along with the strawberry puree. Shake vigorously. Pour into two chilled martini glasses. Enjoy!

This recipe can also be made in the blender.  You could substitute the half & half with ice cream and have a spiked milkshake instead of the cocktail!

I hope the remainder of my day has less challenges that what its had so far.  I will take refuge in the fact that there’s a sweet, creamy Strawberry Shortcake Martini waiting for me at the end of the day!  Cheers!!

Erin

    This looks totally yummy, but what is cream liqueur? Any that you like the taste of or is this something specific?
