Saucepot Tips – Kahlua instead of Vanilla Extract

Submitted by randilicious
If the recipe calls for vanilla extract & you have none on hand, try using equal amounts of Kahlua instead. Alternately when a recipe calls for vanilla extract, along with the vanilla toss in a half portion of Kahlua (e.g. if the recipe calls for 1 tbsp of vanilla extract, toss in 1 tbsp vanilla extract and ½ tbsp Kahlua). If you’re concerned about getting drunk on your creation, only do this for recipes that involve heating as the alcohol will boil off but the taste will remain.

Chocolate Cake Shot

Submitted by BiggieB


¾ oz Frangelico ¾ oz vodka (good stuff)
1 lemon wedge Sugar


  1. Combine vodka & Frangelico in shaker. Shake very well. Strain into shot glass. Coat lemon wedge in sugar.
  2. Shoot drink, then bite into lemon wedge. If made correctly, you will have the after taste of chocolate cake. The cool part is, there is no chocolate in the drink.
  3. If you want a German chocolate cake, substitute Malibu for the vodka.
