Delicious Alternative Ideas

If you are wanting to make a Birthday Cake martini for someone who isn’t a fan of chocolate (crazy, I know) you can try adding strawberry syrup to this drink instead of chocolate. Creating a delicious Strawberry Birthday Cake Martini!

For the rim we suggest a vanilla frosting instead! You can buy this or create your own. A Birthday cake isn’t really a cake without frosting after all, right? When it comes to sprinkles don’t be afraid to use any kind out there! They even make flavored ones, such as chocolate and strawberry! Don’t be afraid to be adventurous and make it your own.

You can also offer some fresh cut strawberries or just use chocolate/vanilla frosting to rim the sides if you have someone that doesn’t like sprinkles.

How to Make a Chocolate Birthday Cake Mocktail

Having a mocktail as an option is always appreciated by everyone! To turn your cocktail into a mocktail you just need to omit your Birthday cake Vodka.

You can either buy non-alcoholic vodka and add a dash of simple syrup and vanilla to create the sweetness or you can add soda water, splash of vanilla, and simple syrup. Both options will have similar flavors.

Just be careful how much syrup and vanilla you add as you don’t want to overpower your over flavors or make it too sweet.
