Birthday Cake Cocktail

I’m going to warn you, this isn’t a short post and it’s not just about Birthday Cake Cocktails. If you just want the cocktail, scroll to the bottom. But if you want to read a story about a beautiful friendship that started online? Keep reading.

Every once in awhile, you meet someone online that is special. Like, in your heart to stay. Someone you find yourself thinking about even when you’re doing mundane daily tasks. Someone who brings a smile to your face when that happens because you think of something funny they’ve said or some random conversation that made you both laugh so hard you almost had tears (or maybe you did!).

You know that if you lived nearby that special friend, you’d have coffee together several times a week, and never run out of things to talk about.

I’ve been lucky to meet a few people like that, and because of that, I enjoy celebrating their birthdays with this fantastic cocktail! 

Birthday Cake Cocktails

 I made this cocktail the first time a few years ago and remember how great it is, every single time I make it. I love the sprinkles when they fall into the drink and leave a trail of color. 

The way I make the cocktail has changed over the years with the addition of flavored vodka’s and it’s now better than ever.

Here are some other fantastic cocktails and drinks that are perfect for any celebration!

Thank you so much for participating in this event. I love this cocktail - especially because I am a sprinkle fiend. Totally going on my to-make list.

I'd rather have this cocktail than a piece of cake. Well, maybe I'd like both. So festive and fun!

Oh my gosh Nicole - this has brought back so many memories. I will never forget you reaching out and saying "I want to help you" I think that may have been the first time in my life that a complete stranger said that to me and I recmember thinking-really? But I learned a big lesson that day. Strangers can come into your life and help you and guess what? You can become friends with someone who you will eventually meet one day and form a special friendship.Thank you for the cocktail - you know me so well. I just wish we were celebrating together. I will leave you with one last thought- the only thing that could have been better would be a duck in the crock pot. hahaha

Now that is why I love you so. I almost threw the duck in the crockpot line in there somewhere too, but figured I'd just confuse everyone else. But you get it. ;) I really SHOULD have done that for my post. I can see you laughing to tears over that! Love ya my sweet friend! Hope your birthday was amazing!
