Chocolate Cake Shot: A Sweet Sensation

Frangelico Hazelnut Liquor + Vanilla Vodka + Lemon Slice = Chocolate Cake

My mind was blown, what’s the mad science behind this?

If you haven’t had a chocolate cake shot, you’ll have your doubts too. But once you try it, it’ll definitely make your list of tastiest shots. I understand how the hazelnut liquor and vanilla vodka would make this shot taste more like a dessert, but the lemon, what’s that all about? You’ll be surprised it brings out more deep chocolate notes from the hazelnut liquor, and is actually the key for making it taste like a bite of chocolate cake.

Try the making that shot at home, you’re in for a flavor trip.

Here’s the recipe adapted from Frangelico:

15 ml Frangelico

15 ml Vanilla Vodka

Lemon Slice


How to Serve:

1. Pour Frangelico and vodka in a shot glass

2. Coat lemon slice with sugar

3. Lick Sugar

4. Do the shot

5. Suck on lemon slice
