Creamy Birthday Cake Cocktail Recipe

With bourbon, a touch of almond and lemon, and a fluffy blend of egg whites and cream, this Creamy Birthday Cake Cocktail is the perfect boozy indulgence!

In celebration of the arrival of baby Sugar & Cloth, I (Ashley Conway) made this Creamy Birthday Cake Cocktail to celebrate Ashley, Jared, and little Sugar & Cloth!

Baby Gwen was born just a few weeks ago into a fun colorful family. And this rainbow sprinkle topped drink is to celebrate Gwen and Momma who can actually drink this drink now!

What’s not to love about boozy, liquid dessert? This birthday cake cocktail is definitely an indulgent one, but so is cake!

Have a birthday coming up? Treat yo-self! Or even if it’s not, this drink is worth mixing up to celebrate the little things in life.

It is similar to a Ramos Fizz if you have ever had one. It’s a boozy, light milkshake-like drink with some fizz created in New Orleans.

Cream and egg white are whipped in a shaker for a few minutes to create a thick foam. So when you pour in soda water, the drink rises above the glass in a delicious gravity-defying feat.

If you can handle it, shake this for 3 minutes to get a really thick foam that will create a foam that balances above the glass.

If not, a 1 minute shake will be enough to make a delicious drink and foam that can still hold the sprinkles.

Ingredients Needed To Make A Creamy Birthday Cake Cocktail

In place of the traditional ingredients, I replaced gin with bourbon for a sweeter notes along with orgeat for almond flavor and also some vanilla bean to drive home the cake flavor when mixed with the cream and egg.

And of course, you can’t forget the sprinkles! It’s not birthday cake with out sprinkles!

Add a stripped paper straw or a flamingo drink stir in the glass for a fun final touch!

I am so excited for Ashley and Jared as the start this incredible journey with little Gwen. Cheers to them! What would you mix up this Birthday Cake Cocktail to celebrate?!

  1. Update: I made the cocktail and it tasted great! Looks adorable too :) I didn’t have sprinkles though, so I used Sugarfina’s Kyoto Blossoms instead. Worked great!

  2. Really cool recipe! I’ll sure give it a try, and you know what would be great with this? Heart-shaped sprinkles! Not like they’ll add any flavors, but it’ll looks so pretty!
