I survived Hurricane Irene, survived no power for a few days, and trying to survive kids not going back to school until next week (they were supposed to start school this week but that has been postponed until next week thanks to Irene). Not a good week for the blog, since I have SO many recipes swirling around in my head! Today’s recipe is for a yummy cocktail… Turtle Caketini. I have so much catching up to do, but before I forget, today is the LAST day to enter my SUMMER GIVEAWAY! Last chance to win 1 of 5 Williams-Sonoma gift cards so be sure to enter if you haven’t already and tell your friends, family, and co-workers to enter so you can talk them into sharing if they win!! Enter on the SUMMER GIVEAWAY page for your chance to win.
Back to today’s recipe for the Turtle Caketini… Someone recently told me about Pinnacle Cake Flavored Vodka and I knew I had to give it a try. Pinnacle has a wide assortment of flavored vodkas such as Cotton Candy, Gummy, Whipped Cream, Root Beer, etc. Think of all the possibilities!!! Looking through my cupboard I came up with a long list of ideas I wanted to try but got inspired by a box of JELL-O Classic Turtle Instant Pudding Mix. I had stocked up last winter on the turtle pudding since it’s a “seasonal” item and I still have a few boxes around. If you can’t find it in the stores right now, no problem. Substitute their chocolate variety. The vodka is CAKE flavored so let’s be honest here, whatever you mix with it, will probably taste good!! I have a few other ideas, but have to save them for future recipes. But in the meantime, hope you enjoy this Turtle Caketini!
I’m just a poor blogger and all I ask for is a little love to keep me going. So please don’t forget to ENTER my current giveaways for some great prizes!
