November 1st, 2013 | News | 0 Comments

Fans of red velvet cake rejoice: you can use Taste of Florida Real Juice Mixers to make a delicious Red Velvet Martini! The classic combination of deep red cake and sweet cream cheese frosting lives on in liquid form with this delicious recipe:

Red Velvet Cake Martini

Ingredients: (Makes 1 serving)

  • 2½ oz. cake vodka
  • ½ oz. Taste of Florida Grenadine
  • ½ oz. Taste of Florida Pina Colada Mix
  • Splash of soda water

Directions: In a shaker tin with ice combine cake vodka, Taste of Florida Grenadine, Taste of Florida Pina Colada mix and a splash of soda water. Strain in to a cocktail glass.

The combination of Grenadine and Pina Colada Real Juice Mixers gives a vibrant pink hue and sweet flavor to the cocktail. Smirnoff Iced Cake vodka is popular and easy to find at your local liquor store, and other delicious brands include Three Olives, Pinnacle, and UV. Cake-flavored vodkas are quite sweet but also pack a punch!

To decorate your martini glass, swirl Grenadine from the bottom to the top rim in a circular pattern. You can also swirl the Grenadine on top of the martini once poured, and a little dollop of whipped cream completes the glass.

The Red Velvet Martini pairs well with a decadent chocolate torte, or an assortment of chocolate truffles. Here is a list of 25 lightened chocolate desserts that will allow you the right balance of prudent indulgence, so you can have your ‘cake’ and drink it too!
