It's my big brother's birthday, and so today's cocktail is in his honor!

See, just about everyone knows him as 'Donutz.' So...we're shaking up a donut-inspired drink!

Full disclosure: my bro would basically never drink this cocktail, and would be much more likely to have an IPA in his hand, specifically one from Dogfish, while telling me this recipe sounds disgusting. (That's what big brothers are for?) I digress.

Let's party.

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz. cake-flavored vodka
  • 1 oz. vanilla vodka
  • .5 oz creme de cacao
  • 2 oz. cream
  • chocolate sauce/frosting/hot fudge topping, to garnish
  • rainbow sprinkles, to garnish

Dip a chilled cocktail glass into the chocolate sauce, then into the sprinkles. Shake remaining ingredients with ice and strain into the garnished glass.

And yes, it would be totally acceptable to pair this with an actual donut.

Happy birthday, Brother!
