a birthday cocktail fit for a princess!



pretty much every year, around my birthday, i come up with my official birthday cocktail. most years its themed, like the one year i had my entire birthday party & drinks themed around lady gaga. with the princess half marathon right around the corner, nothing seemed more appropriate than a disney themed cocktail. i was inspired by this list of disney cocktails, and piggy backed on the idea of a glass slipper drink by making my own suited to my tastes.

i'm celebrating my birthday today, virtually with all of you. here's a toast to another great year! sláinte


the glass slipper: alicia's official birthday cocktail of 2014!


ingredients for the glass slipper:

  • 3/4 shot whipped cream vodka
  • full shot hypnotiq
  • up to one full shot gatorade blueberry pomegranate
  • diet cream soda

start with the whipped cream vodka first, then add in the hypnotiq. slowly add in the gatorade, adding just enough to get the perfect blue color to your liking. then, top off with diet cream soda. enjoy!



do you make custom drinks for your birthday celebration, or any birthday celebration? if not, what's your favorite celebratory beverage to enjoy?!

    1. Thank you!!

      :D I mean, gatorade is hydration, right? But really, there are so many flavors/colors of gatorade, they really are great mixers!
