It’s Friday! After the day I had yesterday (including crashing my blog), I thought a cocktail recipe was in order, don’t you think? And since tomorrow is my birthday, I thought a “caketini” was the perfect way to celebrate both my birthday and the weekend! Today’s cocktail is a Tres Leches Caketini inspired by the Tres Leches Cake which is a cake that has been soaked with three types of milk/cream. Some of my Snappy Gourmet Facebook friends have been asking for a new cocktail so I hope you enjoy it! And if you do enjoy it, let me know by leaving me a comment below! Would love to hear from you!
This recipe is super easy and tastes like cake thanks to a little bit of packaged cake mix. I used a vanilla/yellow cake mix but you could even substitute a chocolate or caramel cake mix. I also used heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk, but you could probably use any kind of dairy products you have depending on what you like or how lowfat or how decadent you want this to be. BUT please note, that the taste of the cocktail will vary a lot depending on how you change the ingredients. I drizzled a little homemade Cajeta down the side of the glass, but you could use caramel or even chocolate sauce. I just put some drops of the Cajeta around the rim of the glass and let it drip down the side.
