The Essential Ingredients

Let’s start with the basics. For your Birthday Cake Shot, you’ll need:

Vanilla frosting and colourful candy sprinkles for the rim – this is where the fun begins.

30 ml Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka – it’s smooth and has just the right hint of vanilla.

Making Your Birthday Cake Shots

Here’s how you put it all together:

Rim your shot glasses with vanilla frosting, just a light dab around the edge will do. Dip the frosted rims into a bowl of candy sprinkles. This step is decorative but also adds a playful crunch that mimics the sprinkles on a birthday cake.

Now, for the shot, combine the Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka, Baileys Irish Cream and chocolate liqueur in a shaker. Add some ice and shake well until it’s chilled. Strain this delicious blend into your prepared shot glasses. Voilà! You’ve got yourself a unique Birthday Cake Shot that brings the party just as much as an actual cake.

Tips for the Perfect Birthday Cake Shot

If you are making these shots for a crowd, line up your glasses and do the frosting and sprinkles in an assembly line. This makes the process quicker and turns it into a fun activity. For a non-alcoholic version, use vanilla and chocolate-flavoured syrups mixed with a bit of cream. Or just keep it simple with chocolate milk. Do not compromise on the decoration and rim with frosting and sprinkles just like the alcoholic version. It's the first thing your guests will see and sets the expectation. Play around with the colours of your sprinkles to match the theme of your party. The fun is in the details.

Whether you’re hosting a big bash or a small gathering, these shots are sure to bring smiles and a dash of whimsy to your event. So here’s to birthdays, joy, and having your cake (shot) and drinking it too!
