Okay, we say this every week. BUT, the Cinnamon Roll Martini is really, truly the favorite drink of the Martini Maidens. I had no idea, however, that people had so many opinions on what makes a good cinnamon roll. Some people like theirs simple and sweet – yeast dough, with a cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of butter. You know, Paula Deen-style! Others throw in raisins, chopped grapes, maybe pour a cup or two of confectioner’s sugar for icing (nah, I’m not exaggerating!), or some type of glaze. Wikipedia says it is not to be confused with the Danish pastry or the Honey Bun. Ok by me, I just know I love a yummy, slightly undercooked cinnamon roll every once in a while when I’m feeling reckless with abandon about my calorie counting.
Why the elaborate discussion about the varieties of cinnamon rolls? When we post a recipe that we name as a Martini Maiden recipe, we have created it ourselves. There might be several other varieties out there. Yea for variety! This is ours, and we hope you love it as much as we do.
So here we go with instructions. . .
2 oz DeKuyper Buttershots
2 oz Bailey’s Original Irish Cream
1 oz DeKuyper Hot Damn Cinnamon Schnapps
1 oz Smirnoff Premium Triple Distilled Vodka
Garnish with cinnamon square candy. If this is not one of the smoothest drinks you have this week, we have an offer for you – let us know what you have found that is! We love hearing from you. As a plug, you can always find us on Twitter or our new Facebook page also. Enjoy!
