A Valentine’s Day cocktail made to taste like cherry cheesecake.
VALENTINE’S DAY COCKTAIL
This cocktail is perfect whipping up a batch with gal pals and sipping the night away. It tastes eerily similar to the classic dessert, cherry cheesecake — sweet, tangy, and decadently rich.
Cherry Cheesecake Sippers also make one heck of a Valentine’s date dessert cocktail. Actually, they may be even better if you happen to be without a date this Valentine’s.
CHERRY CHEESECAKE SIPPER INGREDIENTS
The two alcoholic ingredients in Cherry Cheesecake Sippers is vanilla vodka and butterscotch liqueur. The butterscotch liqueur is what gives this cocktail it’s sweet, butter flavor, and although not cheesecake flavored itself, when combined with the pineapple juice is most definitely works. If you want to leave out the grenadine, you’ll have cheesecake sippers without the cherry!
- Vanilla Vodka
- Butterscotch Liqueur
- Pineapple Juice
- Cream (or Half and Half)
HOW TO MAKE CHERRY CHEESECAKE SIPPER COCKTAILS
Cherry Cheesecake Sippers can be made in a big batch or drink by drink. If you don’t have a shaker, you can also make these cocktails by pouring the ingredients over ice in a Rocks glass (e.g. a short cocktail glass) and simply stirring the ingredients together.
