Birthday Cake Mimosas | TY's Birthday Month!
Hey everyone! KK here to celebrate TY’s birthday Month! Birthdays are extremely special to me and so is this girl! I am blessed to have her in my life and hope our friendship becomes even more “dancing flamenco ladies + fire emoji” than it already is. She is cool as a cucumber, she let’s me be weird and doesn’t judge me (or if she does, she doesn’t do it out loud). I especially love being creative with her. She met me pretty spontaneously to make these cute AF Birthday Cake Mimosas.
If you don’t already know, we like to drink. If you don’t know that, you or either new to the blog (WELCOME!) or you’re not paying very much attention. We decided to experiment with this b-day themed drink and realized that this drink is not for the faint of heart. This is for the Ultimate Sweet-Tooth! I am not exaggerating. My boyfriend, Jared, and TY love their sweets but they couldn’t finish these bad boys. However, my future father-in-law guzzled his down so fast but he likes to drink port as a table wine. I thought I’d warn you before you tried the recipe for yourself. These birthday cake mimosas are festive but fierce in sweetness and potency.
RECIPE: Birthday Cake Mimosas
- Sparkling rosé
- A shot of Vodka (optional)
- Birthday cake ice cream (we used Halo Top)
- Whipped Cream (Homemade or Store Bought)
Dip a champagne flute into icing, and rim the glass with sprinkles. Use a small plate! We made the mistake of using ramekins. You may also have to place them by hand depending on the stickiness and density of your icing.
Add 1½ ounces (about a shot glass) of vodka.
Add one scoop of birthday cake ice cream.
Top off with sparkling rosé.
Garnish with whipped cream and MORE SPRINKLES, if you are as obsessed with them as we are.
Portion Control | We used taller and deeper glasses because they gave more of an ice cream sundae/classic root beer float look but these glasses are equal to about 3 champagne glasses, ergo HAPPY MOTHERF*CKING BIRTHDAY, YOU DRUNK!
Mind the Heat | Put on the whipped cream at the very last minute or omit if you want to make these ahead of time for a party. Our whipped cream was melting in our 70 degree weather.
Eff Calories | Use real Birthday Cake ice cream - Halo Top has less sugar, less calories, and cute packaging but from a culinary perspective real ice cream is much...well...creamier and tastes a lot better.
No alcohol? No problem! | Feel free to omit the vodka. It was a Wednesday when we made these and we did not want to get too turnt. You can also make it completely non-alcoholic by using sparkling juice instead of rosé.
There are much more birthday shenanigans on the way this month so stay tuned by signing up for our weekly newsletter! Again, Happy Birthday TY! WORKKPARTY would be nothing without you! So what do you guys think of these pink, dreamy drinks? Comment below!
