What to Do With a Bottle of Whipped Cream Vodka

Vodka flavors range from the sublime to the ridiculous. Cooling cucumber or bright citrus infused versions of the spirit are natural bases in a wide range of cocktails. But then there is whipped cream vodka. The black sheep of the flavored vodka world, whipped cream vodka is sometimes bought on a whim, sometimes given as a gag, sometimes picked up as the last item standing in holiday gift exchange. But, inevitably, it’s used once and left to gather dust on the shelf because, realistically, what the hell are you going to do with a bottle of whipped cream vodka? Glad you asked. It might not be the sort of thing you want to stir into a Martini or Vodka Soda, but there are still a number of tasty ways to put that bottle to use.

Shake It in a Chocolate Martini

The Chocolate Martini is a simple drink-chocolate liqueur, vodka, and half and half. There’s not all that much you can do to it. But switching out a totally neutral spirit for that bottle of whipped cream flavored vodka transforms it into a drink that tastes like liquid malted milk balls.

Put It in a White Russian

If you drink your White Russians in appropriate quantities and after dinner-as opposed to at constant Dude-like levels-you’ll likely enjoy a sweeter version of the creamy cocktail. Swapping in whipped cream vodka turns this already creamy cocktail into a full on dessert.    

Use It in a Boozy Milkshake

If a White Russian isn’t enough of a liquid dessert, go full ice cream and make a milkshake spiked with whipped cream vodka. Simply add 1.5-2 ounces of whipped cream vodka to a blender along with a quarter cup of milk and a few scoops of ice cream (we lean towards vanilla, strawberry or orange sherbet for a creamsicle shake).

Use It in Jello Shots or Pudding Shots

Jello Shots and pudding shots are two of the rare alcoholic items on which the base spirit doesn’t have much of an impact. Especially in sweeter shots like our Oreo Jell-O Shot or the Tiramisu Pudding Shot.

Sneak It into a Spiked Dessert

In case you couldn’t tell, the only truly good options for a bottle of whipped cream vodka are all sweet applications. As we’ve gone from dessert drink to milkshake to pudding shot, we’ve been getting increasingly close to actual dessert, so why not just use it in an actual dessert? These spiked mango cupcakes call for standard vodka, but swap in some of that sweet whipped cream goodness for an extra treat.

Bonus! Make Your House Smell Delicious

Even though its flavor has a home in all the above options, the best part of whipped cream vodka is actually its scent. It smells like a slightly boozy cake just came out of the oven. And you can make your entire house smell like that. Just add some whipped cream vodka to your reed diffuser and let the magic happen. We know you have a reed diffuser.
