The GOOEY BUTTER CAKE MARTINI is a delicious way to drink your dessert! Decadent, indulgent, creamy goodness!
We here in St. Louis have a couple things we are VERY proud of when it comes to food. There’s a section of town called “The Hill” that boasts the best Italian food you have ever had, maybe even in Italy :). We love our Ted Drewes ice cream and Imo’s Pizza (PROVEL FOREVER!). You certainly won’t find an appetizer we like better than deep fried ravioli! But my favorite of all is GOOEY BUTTER CAKE! It comes in all flavors and assortments, and if you haven’t tried it, you haven’t lived! It’s a STL tradition that we don’t take lightly, and I thought it would be fun to make it into cocktail form! Every great dessert needs a liquid companion, am I right? This Gooey Butter Cake Martini is a must make whether you have tried the real thing or not, it’s SO good, easy, indulgent, and addicting. YUM!
Another thing we in STL are proud of is Pearl Vodka. I know you’ve seen me talk about it on here before, and hopefully you’ve given it a try. If you have, then you’re already a fan. It’s my very favorite vodka because it’s crisp, clean, smooth, delicious, and made right here in St. Louis. It comes in ALL the best flavors (so many!) but my go-to has always been the Black Pearl. To me, it just can’t be beat. This Gooey Butter Cake Martini is fabulous with the flavorless Black Pearl or the Pearl Vanilla Bean, whatever floats your boat!

Just posting these pictures makes me want to sip on a Gooey Butter Cake Martini while diving into a piece of actual Gooey Butter Cake. If Gooey Butter Cake isn’t sold near you, here is a great recipe for the real thing. You HAVE to try it, while sipping this sweet treat. Trust me!
Even Dill is intrigued. Anything with milk is just fine by him!
