This Glazed Doughnut Cocktail is tasty, fun, and looks great! Perfect for a grown-up spin on a childhood favorite.



For the cocktail:

  • 1.52 oz cake-flavored vodka (I used Pinnacle Cake)
  • 1 oz creme de cacao
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • A few drops vanilla extract (to taste)
  • 3 oz half and half
  • Donut holes, for garnish
  • Vanilla glaze, for rim (recipe follows)
  • Sprinkles, for rim

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 23 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Make the glaze by mixing all of the ingredients in a shallow, wide bowl. If too thin, add a bit more confectioner’s sugar. If too thick, add a bit more milk. Once desired consistency is reached, Dip the rim of your glass into the glaze to coat. Flip rim-side up and set down, allowing the glaze to drip a bit. Wait 1 minute, and then dip into the sprinkles. Flip rim side up again and let dry.
  2. Pour all of the liquid cocktail ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, and then strain the cocktail into the glass.
  3. Poke a hole in a doughnut hole with a straw and pull the doughnut hole down a few inches from the tip of the straw. Remove the bit of stuck doughnut from the inside of the straw (using the prong of a fork, if necessary) and serve.
