Icing on the Cake Martinis

I am a big fan of the Food Network and I came home for lunch one day last week and caught part of the Sandra Lee episode on Creative Cakes. She ended the show with a martini that tastes like frosting. This grabbed my attention right away. Since everyone loved the idea of frosting shots at the cupcake shop in Michigan, thought you guys would like to try this as well. I bought all the ingredients on Saturday so John and I could try them.

Here's the recipe courtesy of the Food Network.

Icing on the Cake Martinis


1 shot spiced rum (recommended: Captain Morgan's)
1/2 shot butterscotch schnapps
1/2 shot vanilla schnapps (I could not find and substituted vanilla vodka)
1 shot half-and-half
Candy confetti, for garnish

Add all ingredients, except candy confetti, to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a sprinkle of candy confetti. Makes one drink.

Enjoy!! Beware, if you can drink more than one of these, they WILL sneak up on you. One was enough for me. They are very sweet!
