Boston Cream Pie

Boston Cream Pie
4 shots out of 5

So......it's been a week since my last post.  I can't believe it.  Last week was a crazy one.  We had a lot of practices and games (what's new, right?) plus one of my Best Friends came up for the weekend to celebrate her birthday.  I had a great weekend and now......I'm sick.  I am going to have to skip softball tonight, which bums me out.  On the up side, it's been SUPER hot here lately, which makes me happy.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I am still shocked by the bombing in Boston.  I can't believe that people can do such horrible things.  My heart goes out to all of those effected by it.  I had found tonight's cocktail on pinterest which lead me to Fast Drink Recipes.  Now I haven't had an actual Boston Cream Pie.....either in forever or I've never had one, ever.  I have though had a Yoplait Boston Cream Pie Yogurt before, so I can compare this cocktail to that.  I think this cocktail definitely compares well in taste to the yogurt.  I like the three main flavors together and can more or less taste them all.  I did rim my glass first and then stick it in the freezer, which is the opposite of what the Fast Drink Recipes blog did.  I think freezing it first works well.........until you take it outside in the VERY hot weather for it to only start melting and dripping down the side.

Here is the recipe for a Boston Cream Pie:

  • 1 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz Baileys
  • 1 oz Frangelico
  • 1/16 oz Godiva chocolate liqueur
Rim a martini glass with chocolate syrup and stick it in the freezer.  In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above except for the Godiva chocolate liqueur.  Shake and strain into your rimmed martini glass.  Top with your Godiva chocolate liqueur.

Here's to all those who were effected by the bombing in Boston.  My heart as well as my families hearts go out to you all!
