Red Velvet Cake SkinnytTini

Say what? Yes! I’m not even kidding you — this is a Red Velvet SkinnyTini that tastes like, guess what? CAKE!  What could be a better cocktail to ring in our first December Friday with?  And the real plus is that all these ingredients are available at the grocery store so you can stop by on your way home and make these tonight.


On that shopping note…take my advice now and stock up on some sugar free flavored syrups, as you will need them as I reveal the rest of the Winter line. You’ll need Vanilla, White Chocolate and Salted Caramel. Those with the Almond Milk, Hot Cocoa, Vodka, and some other fancy booze will render an Egg Nog, Salted Caramel and Peppermint Mocha SkinnyTinis the rest of this month. Yes, I did just about copy Starbucks holiday menu. And those coffee drinks turned cocktail are even more amazing that what comes in that fancy-red-cardboard cup we’re so used to seeing in the holiday season.

Stay tuned …each Friday I will post a new Holiday SkinnyTini and will make some of these on air on UT-TV on December 18th at 8:50 am.
