  • It depends on your personal taste, and I think it's equally good served either way
  • If you're on a budget, and can't afford Frangelico, you can substitute any other hazelnut liqueur, but I recommend Frangelico for optimal taste

      I’m giving you the recipe for the chocolate cake shot, because it was an overall favorite for my customers when I was bartending in St. Thomas, USVI. I sometimes offered it as a means of suggestive selling, but more likely than not, people liked it so much they would ask me for the recipe so they could make it at home.

      It’s one of my all-time favorite drink recipes, because it tastes exactly like it sounds. It tastes exactly like you’re eating chocolate cake. So maybe you’re sitting in a bar that doesn’t serve food, and you

      have a sudden for craving for chocolate cake. You can still have the liquid version, and I’m willing to bet if you try one, you’re going to want more.

      Here are the simple ingredients you’ll need:

      1/2 ounce Frangelico liqueur 1/2 ounce vanilla flavored vodka (any brand you choose) 1 slice of lemon 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar

      It’s your choice whether or not to chill it over ice and strain it into a shot glass, but it’s traditionally served at room temperature, much like chocolate cake. It depends on your personal taste, and I think it’s equally good served ...

      • either way. If you’re preparing it at room temperature, simply pour 1/2 ounce of Frangelico into a shot glass, and top with 1/2 ounce vanilla flavored vodka. You can shake it to mix it if you’d like, but it’s really not necessary for the chocolate cake effect. Next, coat your slice of lemon with sugar, and serve on the side with the shot. After drinking the shot, you immediately follow it with a taste of the sugar coated lemon. Nine times out of ten, the person trying the shot for the first time will look
        at you with surprise, because they’ve just discovered that it actually does taste like chocolate cake.

        If you want to get a little fancy with the recipe, you can actually frost the rim of the glass with sugar and lemon first. If you’re on a budget, and can’t afford Frangelico, you can substitute any other hazelnut liqueur, but I recommend Frangelico for optimal taste.

        If you like chocolate, and you enjoy having a cocktail every now and then, I can almost guarantee you’ll love this recipe for the chocolate cake shot. So go ahead and try it, and impress your guests.
