Chocolate Raspberry Cinnamon Cake

To say it's been hot is an understatement.  Last weekend we were able to take an extended weekend stay with one of my BFF's at her place in Fresno.  HOLY HOT WEEKEND!!  I think the hottest it got was somewhere around 110 degrees.  Yea that's too hot for me.....and of course the day we left it was about 20 degrees cooler......figures!

We were able to go to a water park with some pretty darn cool water slides while we were up there which was one of the bestest ideas ever!!  The kids were all sooo good and the water just helped everyone not be grouchy (myself included!!)  We were able to watch the Fresno Grizzles play (SF Giants AAA team) which was a great time and I now want a Grizzlies Hat.  Once we got home we got to check two items off of our Summer Time Bucket List, yeay us!!

Today I looked in my bar and noticed that I really haven't used my raspberry vodka in quite some time.  I pulled it out and a couple other bottles caught my eye, so I decided to get creative.  I created a pretty good cocktail which I topped with Cool Whip, which.....let's be honest, makes everything better!!  

Here is my recipe for a Chocolate Raspberry Cinnamon Cake:

  • 2 ounces raspberry vodka
  • 2 ounces Vanilla Cinnamon Irish Cream
  • 3 ounces Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.  Top with Cool Whip.


Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to fun weekends with friends both new and old!

Cheers!!
