Tipsy Dessert that you won't hate yourself for tomorrow.

Ok, I'll admit it.

I'm a bit of a lush.

So much so, in fact, that a while back, a few of my Facebook friends were in the early stages of planning an intervention because so many of my status updates mentioned alcohol.

Clearly, these people have no sense of humor.

But while I'm not ready to be carted off to rehab to dry out a la Lindsay Lohan, I do like me some liquor.

And I see absolutely no reason not to put it in everything.

Including dessert.

If you are one of the two people who reads my blog regularly, you also know that the size of my a$$ has become a bit of a concern, so this is my attempt to create a dessert that a) tastes like liquor b)tastes good and c) doesn't make my a$$ any bigger.  I hesitate to call it a recipe, because I didn't really cook anything.  It's more like a METHOD.  Wow, I'm fancy.

[Printable Recipe]

1 oz. Pinnacle Whipped Cream Vodka.  Yes, it's as good as it sounds.
1/2 cup fresh berries of your choice.  I like strawberries and blueberries, so I used strawberries and blueberries
1 serving of angel food cake.  Buy it, bake it, steal it, whatever.  If you are on an un-diet and you like cake, angel food cake should become a staple at your house.
2 tablespoons of Cool Whip
1/2 teaspoon white sugar

Rinse, drain and chop your berries to your preferred size, then MACERATE them in the sugar and vodka.  MACERATE is a really fancy way of saying that you pour some stuff over the top of your berries and let them sit and soak for a while.  I learned that word on the Rachel Ray show, and until now, I haven't had an opportunity to use it in a sentence.  Let your berries MACERATE for at least a couple hours.  Gah, I get fancier all the time.

After your berries are MACERATED, tear/cut your serving of angel food cake up into bite sized pieces and put it in a bowl.  Pour your MACERATED berries, juice and all, over the cake, and top with the Cool Whip.

Your delightful dessert has approximately 300 calories per serving.

  1. You forgot to tell me where I can buy said fancy pants vodka.

    Oh, and I'm laughing, cause the link within brought up all of the 'drunk cakes' ... lemondrop, rum, triple choc threat!

  2. You can get the fancy pants vodka at the Liquor Barn at Springhurst, which is where Robert and I went on our Valentine's date. Really, we did. True story :)
