Chris's Wibbage Wet Your Whistle

Chocolate Cake Shot

It has been some time since I have updated this so I figure we need to catch up a bit…let’s do some shots. I have tried to find the origin of this shot without prevail unfortunately. Does it really matter thought the history behind the shot? I will however give a bit of background on one of the ingredients: Frangelico Hazelnut liquor. Created at the tale of the 70’s Frangelico and quickly became a staple in many mix cocktails from martinis to shots. Frangelico only has about 20% ABV or other words it is 40 Proof. So, let’s start to mix our drink. Our drink is a shot called a Chocolate Cake and it tastes exactly like a chocolate cake. I have seen a few different ways one is supposed to drink this shot I shall give up both ways.

First the ingredients

You will need and old fashion shot glass

  1. Hazelnut liquor such as Frangelico
  2. Vodka (preferably a flavored vodka i.e. A Vanilla Vodka)
  3. Sugar
  4. Lemon wedge

Method #1

  • Rim the glass with sugar
  • ½ ounce Frangelico
  • ½ ounce Vanilla Vodka
  • With lemon in hand lick the sugar off the glass…shoot the shot…suck on the lemon….and it will taste like a chocolate cake

Method #2

  • ½ ounce Frangelico
  • ½ ounce vanilla vodka
  • Coat lemon in sugar
  • Do the shot, suck on the lemon covered in sugar …and …BAM chocolate cake!

Next week: We shall be doing another sweet drink that tastes exactly like a candy invented in 1907. As always drink responsibly and CHEERS!
