DIY Birthday Cake Shots #party #pink #alcohol #beverage

My best friend is celebrating her 30th birthday this year, and she asked me to help put together a little party. She expressed that she didn’t want anything over the top; just a few close friends, some card games, and, of course, drinks.

While browsing around my favorite craft store I found the cutest pink glass bottle that matched the coasters I had made at, so I came up with the idea of filling it with premixed shots for a birthday toast. Mixed shots are easy to make when you have a bar with all the tools and ingredients, but not everyone is lucky enough to have a bar in their home, so premixing is a great idea if you’re planning on making several shots at once.

Birthday Cake-Flavored Shots
Makes one 3 oz shot

1 oz cake flavored vodka
1 oz white chocolate liqueur
1 oz 1/2 and 1/2
A pinch of funfetti cake mix

I had no idea how much liquid the bottle I purchased would hold, so I had to do a little experimenting first. I simply filled the bottle with water and then poured the water out into a large measuring cup. It turned out that it was a little over 3 cups, so it was easy to figure out that I would need 1 cup of each ingredient. After filling the bottle I had extra ingredients, so I made another batch in an empty, clean milk jug, just in case anyone wanted another shot.

To add a little extra flare to the shots, I placed a personalized label on each one and rimmed the glasses with sprinkles. I made these about an hour before the party and placed them in the fridge on party platters. I also used the extra labels I had to decorate drinking glasses.
