Better Than Sex Caketini Cocktail drink recipe - easy and fun twist on the cake!

Better Than Sex Caketini Cocktail drink recipe, an easy and fun twist on the popular cake recipe! Snappy Gourmet is turning ONE this week!!  Can you believe it?  I can’t!  This last year has been a lot of fun and I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you, receiving your kind messages, and of course creating recipes that I hope you have enjoyed!  I feel like I’m JUST getting started and have so many more recipes I want to try and share with you all!   Thank you for passing along my site and recipes to your friends and family!  The site has grown more than I ever thought it would and I’m excited to see what this next year will bring!  I have lots of holiday and Christmas cookies coming up soon but before I start those, I thought I’d celebrate one year with a new -tini recipe!  I thought about some kind of birthday caketini but ran across Paula Deen’s recipe for Is it Really Better Than Sex Cake  and thought it would be perfect to turn into a cocktail. So here is a fun recipe for a Better Than Sex Caketini!

Later this week, I have my FAVORITE chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I debated about sharing it, but decided to not only share it, I’m going to show you over the next few weeks how you can use that one dough and turn it into multiple different kinds of cookies perfect for the holidays! If you’re not signed up to get my posts by EMAIL, now would be a good time so you don’t miss out.

There are a lot of variations of a Better Than Sex Cake, but the reviews for Paula Deen’s recipe for Is it Really Better Than Sex Cake   are incredible and it seems to be one of the most popular!  The cake contains pineapple, coconut, French vanilla pudding, and whipped cream.  Sounded like a great inspiration for a cocktail, don’t you think?  And a great way to celebrate one year of my blog!  Does the cake or drink live up to its name???? Well, I’ll let you be the judge! :)

The ingredients in this drink are fairly simple.  I ran across this So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer and thought I’d give it a try in this drink.  It worked out really well!  If you can’t find it, you can try substituting your favorite coconut milk.

I also added some toasted coconut to the top of the drink but you could also line your glass rim with toasted coconut.

  1. I was planning to make a sex joke, but I know this is a family blog…

    Love the So Delicious stuff! Looks like a great drink to celebrate your awesome milestone.

  2. I grew up having ‘BTS’ cake. But now that I’m a grown up and stuff, a ‘BTS’ caketini is perfecto!!!!! Yum!

  3. Ohh, yum. I’m saving this for my birthday in a couple of weeks. It is a big birthday with a 0 at the end! this looks like the perfect thing for drink of the week on my birthday week. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Toni! Happy Birthday!!! Hope you enjoy the drinks! I have many more on my site that may be perfect for a birthday as well!

  4. Made this tonight — didn’t have toasted coconut to garnish, but this ROCKS! Thanks for sharing this — big hit with me and I’ll be making it for family and friends!

  5. What a terrific idea!

  6. oh wow!! this looks so good! Love it!

  7. Love sll the ingredients – can’t wait to try this!!!!!!

  8. I usually like to cover up the taste of the alcohol with the other ingredients, so can you taste the alcohol in this?

    • snappygourmet says:

      I didn’t think the drink was strong, however, if you’re unsure, just start with half the vodka. You can always add more if you think it’s ok.

  9. Whow now this looks Orgasmic~I’ll have it daily!

  10. Kelly Ryan says:

    This sounds way too good! Can’t wait to try it!

  11. Genius! Better than Sex in a glass that includes alcohol! You’re a girl after my own heart :)

  12. Do you think that I could use canned coconut milk for this? I have some leftover and this recipe is calling my name!

  13. Holy moly, cocktails and dessert all in one. In fact, hold the dinner, just keep these coming!

  14. Sarah Ann Witmer says:

    could I mix this in a blender? I don’t have a shaker

  15. Over the Top YUM! I had to pin and stumble!

  16. Could you make this as a big batch to serve in a container to a crowd or will it settle too much?

  17. I just had to click over from Pinterest to see this one. I’m so funny with alcoholic drinks. I don’t drink beer/lager or stout, but I do love spirits and this looks perfect. Cake vodka? I just can’t.

    In fact, I really can’t. No such thing here *sulk* I might have to travel across the pond for this one though. Heaven!
