My brother Luke Colenzo who lives in Upstate NY told me about cake Vodka on my recent trip.
He recommended me to try mixing it with Amaretto to make an almond paste cookie flavor, I adapted that below, also some delightful combination of flavors. Now that I was introduced to Cake Vodka, I just imagined the endless possibilities, so I decided since Coconut Cream Cake and Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie are my favorite desserts, I would come up with a new drink to love for the summer months (or anytime of the year for me! )
Cheers, hope you love it!

As promised, Part 2, here is our great experience we had the very next day at Vescio's Franklin Hotel in Rome NY ( they are on Facebook too). When you walk in the door, your surely in heaven with the many rows of pastry in the see through glass cases. A real family atmosphere who runs the business.
Hard to get by these without wanting to eat dessert first!
The cannoli are fantastic!
Everything from pusties to biscotti and more!
Just amazing. Italian pastry heaven. The pusties, cannoli, cakes, Italian cookies, lobster claws and many other Italian specialities awaits you. This is as close to homemade as it gets. The service and family atmosphere is just what I needed to recover from that last dissappointing experience at Cavallo's. I could have stopped right here at the pastry then came the menu..... oh boy and yes great food! Thanks to Aunt Linda and Uncle Joe for bringing us here for lunch!

My Utica New York Cavallo's Food Experience Review Part 1
This photo is what they have on their menu a version of Greens. My niece ordered them and laughed when she tasted them, she said I should have made them instead, mine are much better! These were a little gritty and not as tender as we would like.
As many of my readers know, Utica, New York is my home town and near and dear to my heart! I go back as often as possible for my favorite foods. For over 20 years now, I have gone to Cavallo's in New Hartford, NY on Genesee St., always with great compliments on their food and service. Every time we go home, my husband and I make this our last night get together there, with the family and friends to meet for our last great dinner, well unfortunately, I can't say that this year. The service was by far the worst treatment we had ever experienced not only there anywhere, even sadder we had the largest group there that went unnoticed!

Isn't it a shame how fast time goes by on vacation? Well I am back to share some of the highlights of our trip with you. Sit back and enjoy the views. I have also included the link backs to the resorts, if you ever get a chance to visit Scottsdale, I would highly recommend these two resorts.
We woke up to ducks, rabbits and road runners every morning.
They greeted us on our walks to our breakfast at the Fairmont in Scottsdale everyday we were there, so tame.
