Tres Leches Martini, Yes Please!

September 11, 2015, In: Cocktails, Food and Drink


If you like tres leches cake, you’re going to love this tres leches martini. It’s yum-o!

I first heard about tres leches (three milks) cake from my boyfriend, he said it was the best cake he had ever had. That year for his birthday I tried my hand at making one and the results were amazing! Considering I’m not a big cake fan, for me to say amazing means… amazing! Every year he now gets a tres leches cake, and I’m all about it too.

We started to wonder if we could turn that taste into a martini. Sure enough… you can. Because tres leches cake is amazing, so a martini would be over-the-top amazing.

To make a Tres Leches Martini, you’ll need: RumChata,¬†Jim Beam Red Stag Cinnamon Infused Bourbon, half and half, and cinnamon to top. Recipe is below.

The Tres Leches Martini a perfect after dinner treat… when you want dessert and you kinda want a cocktail too. ūüėČ

Tres Leches Martini

  • 2¬†ounces¬†RumChata
  • 1¬†ounce¬†Cinnamon Infused Bourbon (I used Jim Beam Red Stag)
  • 4¬†ounces¬†half and half
  • Cinnamon to garnish

(Makes 1)

In a shaker; combine RumChata, bourbon and half and half. Add ice and shake.

Pour into a martini glass, top with cinnamon and enjoy!
