Chocolate cake shot

I made this German chocolate cake shot for my friend Julie’s birthday party. It’s really a perfect stand in for the warm summer days when heavy chocolate cake is not really appealing.

Julie enjoyed this birthday shot (we all did) and we didn’t miss the cake. 🙂 We served it to our partiers with a light fruit tray and chips.

Chocolate Cake Shot Recipe:

ingredients for the chocolate cake shot

Frangelico is a rich hazelnut liqueur. To tell you the truth I expected a chocolate liqueur in this birthday cake shot recipe.

And wow. I did not see lemon coming in here either. But it works. Trust me. The vanilla vodka adds just the right amount of richness.

The shot tastes like a bite of chocolate cake. Frangelico drinks are so delicious.

Ingredients:

  • Frangelico Liqueur- (It has a hazelnut flavor that tastes like chocolate. Think Nutella.)
  • Vanilla vodka- Any brand you enjoy is fine. We used Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka.
  • 1 Fresh lemon
  • Sugar
  • simple syrup (for wetting the glass rim-use a lemon slice if you prefer)

Visual Guide:

Please also watch our video. I demonstrate how to drink this vanilla vodka drink and garnish it two ways. Here is a picture guide of the steps.

It’s a simple pour drink after you get the lemon sliced and sugar step done. Keep your cocktail shaker in the cupboard this time. 🙂

This shot is easy to make for a pretty large crowd. Just line up the shot glasses and slice those lemons. No chilling, mixing or shaking. Just sugar and pour.
