Pineapple Upside Down Cake...Cocktails!

I am completely sure you have heard of these.  Maybe even made them.  This is not my original drink, it is the drink of anyone who loves pineapple upside down cake!


The first time I drank these, I was drinking one of these then a glass of wine, one of these.....glass of wine.  I had a complete highschool experience, spinning room, etc.  Pathetic, and even more pathetic that I admitted it.  My son called and when I told him I couldn't speak because the room was spinning, I heard him yell to some buddies, "DUDE, my mom is WASTED".  Newsflash son....I was NOT wasted.  If I had been I would have been enjoying myself rather then laying in bed with my eyes closed and having a hurling station at my side.  This was the day I decided I was an all or nothing girl.  Completely crap faced or nothing.  The inbetween is not a place I want to visit again.  Anyway we all go down a road at some point that paints an embarassing picture of us as parents.  This was mine!  He won't let me forget it. 

Anyway these are delicious and in case you get a hankerin' for a cake of the liquid kind here is how you get the best of it, in my opinion.  This will make 2 drinks.  Shaken........not stirred please!


1 cup pineapple juice
3 ounces Cake Vodka
Maraschino Cherries
White Sugar

Take your glass that you are serving your drink in and using water or pineapple juice wet the rim.  Pour some sugar on a plate and while the rim is still wet, dip it in the sugar so you have the rim completely covered.  Set aside.

Fill your shaker with ice.  Add in pineapple juice and vodka and shake.  Pour into serving glasses and plunk in a cherry!

Enjoy and don't let these little buggers get the best of you!  I certainly won't ever let it happen.......again.
