Dessert by the Shot: Pinnacle Cake and Cupcake Frosting Vodka

Cake + Frosting + alcohol= a Johnny Cupcake party?  May be after 5 shots, you may think so, but actually it’s the new flavors in the vodka world.   With the cupcake boom, it would be only natural that it’s popularity overflow into the liquor world.  Our appetite for desserts are now available for us who crave a liquid diet.  Cake Vodka by Pinnacle is now available among all of their other edible  flavors like Cotton Candy and Whipped.   Cupcake Vodka is now available with Frosting, Chiffon, and Devil’s Food.

Pinnacle Cake vodka smells and tastes exactly like yellow cake.  Caution, it is sweet.  Simply, it can easily be shaken and taken as a shot.  We first mixed it with Dekuyper Buttershots… whoa, way too sweet.  It may need a little sour to balance out the sweetness, perhaps a squeeze of lemon.

Cupcake Frosting vodka faintly smells and tastes like white frosting.  It’s more vodka than flavor, but a more mixable vodka to accommodate a sweeter addition like peach schnapps.

Not only vodka brands are developing the more unusual flavors.  Syrups like Torani are always introducing new flavors.  We’ve experimented with Gingerbread and Peanut Butter.   The possibilities of cocktail creations are endless! Regardless of all the new sweet flavors coming out,  I’m still anxiously waiting for the bacon vodka to arrive in Hawaii.

Suggestions on what cocktails to create…
