German Chocolate Cake Cocktail

Holy cow what a weekend we had! So we where going to go to the rodeo on Friday to see Toby Keith, but decided to take the night off, relax a little and catch up on some tv shows. Saturday we headed up to the Steer Auction about 8:30 am for the breakfast then the auction started at noon. I got my picture taken with Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison who was out there. She was really nice and it was a pleasure meeting her.

We bought our steer around 1:30pm and headed to the car for a quick cat nap before heading into the stadium to see Blake Shelton. By the time we got home we had been up there 12 hours. Sunday we stayed home and lounged by the pool while the hubby smoked a brisket all day. We had our steak night and I have a super yummy side dish I can't wait to share with you on Wednesday!

It's the last week of rodeo and we'll be out there every night so I thought I would start the week off with a cocktail. The sad thing was I wasn't 100% sold on this drink. While it tasted a little like german chocolate cake it's a lot of work.

German Chocolate Cake
(Adapted from Guy Fieri)

2 cups ice
2 ounces citrus vodka
2 ounces hazelnut liqueur (Frangelico)
1 fresh lemon wedge
1 teaspoon sugar

Fill a shaker with ice. Add vodka and hazelnut liqueur and shake to combine. Dip lemon wedge into sugar.

Strain vodka and hazelnut liqueur into a snifter or lowball glass. Bite lemon with sugar, then drink from snifter. Swallow, then exhale. Tastes just like German chocolate cake.


  1. Sounds like ya'll are having a lot of fun.

  2. You know how jealous I am of your weekend so I'll spare you the whining (oh, I wish I were there!). The drink recipe looks delicious.
