What’s in it: Vanilla vodka, whipped cream, one red velvet whoopie pie, milk and ice.
Why we love it: Confession — we’re sort of addicted to whoopie pies. More specifically, Society Bakery’s whoopie pies. And when we heard Four Lounge turned this sweet, puffy pastry into a drinkable dessert, we nearly fell off our barstools. The creamy cocktail is made by blending half of a pie with milk and vanilla vodka. The best part is the garnish: whipped cream and the other half of the pie.
Quotable: “We all know that all the ladies love red velvet cake, and the whoopie pie in the last few years has made a comeback. It was a very easy decision to pick the best bakery in Dallas to make the whoopie pie [martini].” — Keith LaBonte, Four Lounge owner.
