Chocolate Cake Recipe...for a friend's Dad's Birthday (or anytime)

Serve in Old-Fashioned Glass

1 Lemon, sliced. Put lemon slices in clean jar, like a jam jar. Layer lemon, sprinkle heavily with sugar, then lemon slice, then sugar, til the jar is full. Prepare 15 minutes or longer before making drink.

Sugared lemons may be kept in the fridge, not sure how long because we use them all up at one time since I don't "shoot" this drink, but sip it like a dessert. A bit of sugared lemon, a sip; a bite, a sip...and so on. To me, it tastes just like German Chocolate cake, even though there is nothing Coconut in the recipe.

1 oz Frangelico® hazelnut liqueur (made primarily from the distillation of the infusion of toasted hazelnuts into alcohol and water, flavored with toasted coffee,cocoa, vanilla berries and rhubard root).

1 oz Stoli® Vanil vodka

Moisten the rim of an old-fashioned glass with the juice from a lemon slice. Dip the rim in vanilla sugar. Add the vanilla vodka and Frangelico hazelnut liqueur; stir together. Lick the sugar rim, shoot the mixture, and bite a piece of sugared lemon.


  1. goodness, this sounds a treat. Generally I dont drink though. Maybe a glass of wine now and then.

  2. Wow - sounds like a nice way to spend a cold evening.
    love the new look!

  3. For me? Why, Thank you!

    I keep trying to sip out of the glass in the picture and something must be wrong with my screen.

    Anyway, thank you for posting this. I'll give this a try over the weekend and let you know how it goes. Happy birthday to everybody!
