Wedding Cake Martini

Wedding Cake Martinis taste just like an Italian wedding cake cookie! Add a pretty decorative rim of vanilla sugar and wedding color-coordinating sugar for an extra special cocktail.

1 1/2
oz amaretto
2
oz orange or pineapple juice
1/2
oz vanilla vodka
Ice
For rimming the glass

tablespoons vanilla sugar
2
tablespoons colored sugar

Directions

  • 1 Combine ingredients and ice in a cocktail shaker.
  • 2 Shake briefly but vigorously.
  • 3 Strain into a martini glass.
  • 4 Instructions for rimming glasses: moisten rims of martini glasses with a little orange or pineapple juice. Gently shake off any excess and immediately dip into the cake mix/sugar mixture.

Step By Step  

Wedding Cake Martini

As prepared by Michelle P,

Looking for a theme cocktail for your bachelorette gathering or bridal shower that incorporates two girl-tested and approved favorites, i.e. weddings and martinis?


How about a Wedding Cake Martini, a sweet little cocktail “wrapped” with decorative rim.

The cocktail combines a little amaretto (yum, always a good idea!), a little orange juice or pineapple juice and just a touch of vanilla vodka.   Fresh squeezed OJ is absolutely worth the effort here (particularly if you cheat like I do and used the fresh squeezed by the grocer version).  Pineapple juice from the can, however, works just fine.

Take the nuptial theme a bit further by adding a fun sugared rim.  (I just returned from London, and came back with a case of royal wedding fever, and as such couldn’t resist a little sugared rim rhapsody in blue when I photographed this cocktail for Tablespoon!).

In a shallow bowl, mix three tablespoons of vanilla sugar and two tablespoons of colored sugar in wedding colors.

Dip the rims of the martini glasses in a little juice, and shake gently to remove any excess moisture (this will keep the sugar as bright and crisp as possible!) and dip into the sugar mixture.



Cheers!
