Not only is Thanksgiving this Thursday, but so is International Cake Day! Since people will be concentrating more on their love for family and a nice hearty bird, I felt I would throw a little passion to this secondary and much forgotten day this year.
I have the perfect, easy-to-prepare cocktail for the festivities. If you enjoy the fresh and moist dessert, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, you will appreciate this beverage named after this famed after-dinner treat. No need to the utensils, folks – just a little thirst for something tasty.
Just for pun purposes here, let’s kill two birds and enjoy this thirst quenching mixed drink after a couple platefuls of good grub after this day of thanks. This will surely put an exclamation point on the after-dinner nap on the lounge chair while keeping up with the football watching from time to time.
Enjoy your Turkey Day and International Cake Day! Cheers!
1 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Licor 43
Splash of Grenadine
Method: Build this in an old fashioned glass filled with ice, by pouring in the first two ingredients to measure. Top off with Pineapple Juice and add a splash of Grenadine. Stir and serve.
