What is in the Pink Birthday Cake Cocktail?

how to make a red velvet martini

While this red velvet martini looks very kid friendly,  it bears mentioning that it does contain alcohol so it is an adults only drink. This is most definitely not a mocktail. 

(If you want to give the kids something similar, you can use strawberry milk). 

In our Sprinkle cocktail, you need the following:

  • Sprinkles (non-pareils)
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Red Velvet Baileys Irish Cream or similar
  • White Chocolate Syrup
  • Vanilla Vodka

Although you could use chocolate liqueur with this cupcake martini, I prefer to use white chocolate syrup. 

As the syrup is non-alcoholic, you can even buy it on Amazon. 

You can also use plain vodka if you don’t have the vanilla kind on hand although the vanilla vodka is really great in this red velvet martini. 

As for tools, you don’t need anything expect for two shot glasses for measuring your ingredients and two saucers for the sprinkle rim on your glass.

How To Make The Sprinkle Rim On Your Birthday Cake Cocktail

It is super easy to make a really impressive sprinkle rim on your martini glass. 

All you need is chocolate syrup – the same kind that you buy at the grocery store and put on your ice cream sundaes. 

You will also need some cute sprinkles. I used the round non-pareil kind but you can use any type you have. 

Instructions for the sprinkle rim

  1. Put the chocolate syrup in a saucer. Roll your glass in it until the entire rim is covered
  2. Put your sprinkles in a shallow bowl or saucer. Dip the glass into the sprinkles
