Cherry Almond Cupcake

Why in the world do I have “Womanizer” by Britney Spears stuck in my head? I honestly can’t think of anything but that stupid song.

And of course, it’s a total white elephant so the more I try to not think about it, the more I think about it.

La-la-la-la-la-la.

Maybe if I listen to “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana, my brain can at least get off this horrible repeating cycle of, “Lollipop, must mistake me, you’re a sucker.”

Ok, I think it’s working.

Just need to increase the volume a little bit.

A little bit more.

A LITTLE BIT MORE.

OK! SWITCHING TO “ZOMBIE” BY THE CRANBERRIES!

Hm….

I think it worked.  Go figure!

So back on topic…

While trolling the internet, I came across this recipe for Cherry-Almond Vanilla Mini Cupcakes written by Lauren Brennan for Better Homes and Gardens, and I was instantly inspired to make the cocktail version!  It’s deceptively strong and absolutely delicious.

Cheers and beers!

Recipe:

Mix 1 oz Amaretto, 1 oz Wedding Cake Vodka, and 1 oz Vodka with approximately 2 oz Cherry Ice Cream.  There’s no need for ice – the ice cream will melt and cool the drink down.

Pour into martini glass and garnish with maraschino cherries.
