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.

More About This Recipe

  • 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!). The perfect way to toast the bride-to-be! Cheers!
