Cool, creamy King Cake Shots - cake vodka, Baily's, Cinnamon Schnapps, and cream



Celebrate Mardi Gras with these cool, creamy King Cake Shots!  They have all the decadent flavors of a King Cake, but in liquid form…with alcohol!



2 ounces cake flavored vodka

1 ounce plain vodka

2 ounces Irish Cream liqueur

2 ounces cinnamon schnapps

1 ounce heavy cream

Purple, green, and gold sanding sugar

Whipped cream, as a garnish


Use a small spoon to place a teaspoon of each sugar on a small, flat plate. 

Use water to moisten the rim of four shot glasses.

Dip the rim into the sugar to get a bit of each color on the rim.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.

Pour in both vodkas, the Irish Cream, cinnamon schnapps, and cream. 

Shake until the outside of the shaker is icy old.

Strain evenly into the glasses.

Top each glass with a dollop of whipped cream.
