Jenni Rivera

This weekend I had the pleasure of checking out superstar Jenni Rivera at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Certainly a first for me to be at a concert where I didn’t fully understand the words, but the energy and love for music was all the same. Don’t get it twisted, Jenni is kinda gangsta as she sips from a bottle of Patron between songs and she hails from Long Beach.

I had the pleasure of attending a tasting for the Piece of Cake Liqueur brand and walked away highly pleased. Again I’m not a fan of flavored liquor (outside of coconut ciroc) but Piece of Cake is on to something with their innovative creation. The Chocolate Cake Liqueur is really like drinking a piece of cake, the hazelnut and cocoa notes blend well. It’s no wonder they won the highly coveted Silver Award in the tasting competition at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America’s 67th annual Convention and Exposition.

Now I’ve made my own Chocolate Cake drink in the past with a mix of Vanilla Vodka and Frangelico, but this one bottle cuts out the need of excess. A rollout of other dessert-inspired flavors like strawberry shortcake and pineapple upside down cake is planned. Join them on FACEBOOK for more updates and when the liqueur will be in a store near you.
