Be honest, guys–does looking at this chocolate cupcake cocktail not make you totally salivate? OMG. Frosting. Sprinkles. Chocolate syrup?! Yes, yes, and yes. Dying. The Chocolate Cupcake Cocktail comes courtesy of Java Cupcake (and Pinterest, naturally!) and is apparently a strong, sippy-status drink. It contains whipped cream vodka, amaretto, and chocolate cream liquor to create that cupcake-esque flavor you crave. Click over to Java Cupcake for all of the ingredients and and full instructions! If you’re feeling extra indulgent, I hear there’s nothing like chasing a cocktail with a cupcake 😉 Bring on the funfetti!

Some women pride themselves in being guys’ girls when it comes to drinking. These are the ladies who make a big deal about exclusively sipping whiskey or craft beer. They turn their noses up at the mention of flavored spirits, abhor cutesy cocktail names, and even roll their eyes at vodka sodas. To this (and them) I say whatever. Being a girl is fun. And shamelessly indulging in pink, fruity, sparkly, drinks–if you’re into thing–every now and then is one of the perks that comes with being a member of our gender. Embrace your femininity and get tipsy with this recipe for the ultimate girl drink.

Hot Pink Raspberry Cosmos!
