Pineapple Upside Down Cake Martini

I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July today!! We're meeting up at a friends house to shoot off fireworks later tonight, but in the meantime it's time to relax a little in our 100 degree temps which they said should feel like 114 degrees today. I'll plant my hinny in the ac for now until I have to go outside!

Sometimes I have a craving for something and then I'm to lazy to make it so I find another way to satisfy the craving. Kind of an inspiration in a determined kind of way. It's been a while since I made a pineapple upside down cake, but still having 1/2 an anniversary cake left I for sure don't need to make another cake plus with it being a holiday we'll have sweets overload later on. I did a quick search online for a cocktail with the same flavors of the cake and I came across the following from Some comments recommend adding a splash of Amaretto in in to give it a more cakey flavor. I tried it with and without and I think I agree. The pineapple juice can be toned down a little so the other flavors come out, but otherwise it tasted pretty good.

Shake pineapple juice and vodka with ice in a tumbler. Pour into a martini cocktail glass. Add a dash of grenadine, and serve.

Happy 4th of July from our family to yours!!
