Easy Chocolate Cake Shot Recipe that tastes amazing made with Frangelico hazelnut liqueur and vodka.
Chocolate Cake Shot Recipe
This is one of the best-tasting cocktail shots. It truly tastes like a rich fluffy chocolate cake in liquid form.
It may surprise you to know there are no chocolate ingredients in this cocktail shot but there is a sugar-coated lemon.
I know it is really odd but it works. The Frangelico has a Nutella flavor that works great in this yummy drink.
It is kind of a deceptive recipe because you would not think it tastes like chocolate cake when you look at the ingredients. Who would think that vodka and Frangelico would make a delicious shot.
This cocktail shooter is also known as birthday cake shots and/or German Chocolate Cake Shot.
It is a great chocolate shot for special occasions, birthdays, or when you want a dessert-flavored cocktail shot.
