Tailgate Cocktail: Western Carolina Edition


It’s Western Carolina week and the bakery is open.  As is SEC custom, teams typically schedule cupcake teams the week before season ending games against their arch rivals.  Alabama is playing the Catamounts of Western Carolina before the Iron Bowl, since when the schedule was made we did not yet know that Auburn would be one of the worst teams in the country.

For this week’s cocktail I have chosen to go with something light and fun since I  think we could all use something like that after last week’s debacle.  Following the Texas A&M fiasco I went through a bottle of W.L. Weller bourbon like Johnny Manziel went through Alabama’s defense.  In the spirit of getting back on track this week I present the Cake Batter Cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • Vanilla flavored vodka (Stolichnaya makes a good one)
  • Amaretto
  • Ginger Ale
  • Sprinkles

Directions:

  • Pour a 4 count of ginger ale into a martini or margarita glass
  • Add a 1.5 count of amaretto (chocolate liqueur works too)
  • Stir and garnish with sprinkles

Note: Apparently there are now cake flavored vodkas on the market, which I do not recommend using as the sound of that just sounds absolutely vile

Let’s all do our best to put last week behind us, dispatch the Catamounts, root against Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame, then move on to the business of dismantling Auburn.  Roll Tide.
