{VIDEO} Cupcake Cocktails & Mocktails: Funfetti Martini, Mimosa & Shots

Cocktails that taste like a birthday party in a glass! Imagine if you could have your cake and drink it too, with sweet funfetti cupcake flavored martinis, mimosas or shots, all finished off with frosting and rainbow sprinkles.


Basically, if I were throwing a party, there is nothing I would rather serve than pink funfetti-ified cocktail concoctions that taste just like birthday cake. 



Why they don't actually serve these at every bar or restaurant, I have no idea, because these are pretty much the best thing to happen to cocktails.


So, since it's almost New Years, I wanted to show you guys some super fun adult beverage ideas to celebrate with, and if you're not of legal drinking age, I'm going to show you how you can make non-alcoholic "Mocktail" versions too!


The next time you're throwing a party, or having a girls night in, or have a special celebration, your friends are going to go nuts over these.


The best part is, you can make the rimmed glasses and mini cupcakes in advance, and then, just fill them up right before you're ready to serve, for a perfect party surprise.
