I just love drinking my dessert with these Red Velvet Cake Martinis made with red velvet cake mix! There is just so much less cleanup and wait time involved this way…just pure instant, delectable gratification! A touch of cream cheese frosting to the tops of the martini glasses before a good shake and pour is the only work you have to do. The beautiful color of this drink makes these the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail!
My husband bought me these gorgeous roses for my birthday and I was totally bummed when they began to wilt. Well, at least the petals made for a pretty picture prop. I definitely wouldn’t mind another dozen of them with a couple of these Red Velvet Cake Martinis for Valentine’s Day (with some chocolate covered strawberries of course)! They really are like drinking a piece of red velvet cake…deeeelicious!
I made a few different variations of this recipe until I felt that I had the perfect, creamy, red mixture. Adding a bit of cake mix gives this drink such a beautiful color with that undeniably delicious red velvet taste. I felt a smidge bit guilty when I was drinking these with my mother-in-law last weekend while my husband was busy hammering away at the basement (what a mess). Anyway, she once again stated that these were her new favorite martinis. LOL…this seems to happen each time I make her a new flavor. Saturated Saturday is always such a hoot! I “test” my drink recipes while my parents and in-laws give me “constructive” feedback. It is just a win-win situation for everybody.
If you are looking for another great cocktail idea for Valentine’s Day, you should definitely check out these White Chocolate Cranberry Pink Martinis. They are so pretty and pink with Godiva White Chocolate.
