Chocolate Cake Shot





Introduction: Chocolate Cake Shot

Cocktails vs. Mocktails Contest

Third Prize in the
Cocktails vs. Mocktails Contest

Though it doesn't contain any chocolate (or any cake (the cake is a lie)), this is an awesome shot that will not only get you drunk, but tastes like a perfect bite of chocolate cake. If you're after some real chocolate cake (in shot format), give these a try!

Note: Because they're so tasty, these will get you plenty drunk awfully quickly - make sure to keep track of your consumption and never drink and drive.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

  • .75 oz. Frangelico Hazelnut Flavored Liqueur
  • .75 oz. vodka
  • Highball or large shot glass
  • Ice
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Sugar
  • Wedge of lemon

Step 2: Shaken, Not Stirred

  1. Add Frangelico and vodka to a cocktail shaker half full of ice
  2. Shake well
  3. Dip the rim of the glass in water to wet it, and then into sugar to coat lightly - shake off any excess
  4. Strain the vodka mixture into the sugar coated glass
To Drink:
  • Lick sugar off the rim of the glass
  • Down the shot
  • Suck the lemon
  • Just like fresh-baked chocolate cake!

    I use limes, my brother and I used Bailey our first time but I'm using your liquor this time.

    Good stuff. Wifey loves it

    this shot is amazing, i found that the sugar and lemon were unfiting to the drink, so i grabbed my daughters chocolate milk powder mix . with the Frangelico and chocolate milk mix, i rimmed the glass assembled the shot, and it was a hit.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your variation of it! Personally I think the coolest thing about it is how chocolatey it ends up tasting even though there's none in it.

    you should all try this and replace the vodka with coconut rum then you have a german chocolate cake

    so good and so easy!

    i used a little honey first on the rim of the shot glass to hold the sugar more.

    I've never tried honey, I have run the lemon over the rim instead of using water though. Honey sounds like an awesome idea though - thanks!

    The best Chocolate Cake I ever had didn't have sugar on the rim but rather coating the lemon. Try it out.

    Thanks for the great suggestion! I personally prefer it on the rim of the glass since it's a nice presentation, but sugared lemon slices also work wonderfully.

     The cake is a lie :D
