Liqueurs & Alcohol


Often we're asked what can be used in place of alcohol in our recipes.

Liqueurs add a special flavor to desserts that is difficult to replace,

but if you choose to make a substitution, here are some tips. Note,

however, that the flavor will change, and it may take some practice to

find the flavor you like the best.


  • If the recipe calls for 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier or other

orange-flavored liqueur, substitute 2 tablespoons unsweetened orange

juice concentrate or 2 tablespoons orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon orange

extract.


  • For 2 tablespoons rum or brandy, substitute 1/2 to 1 teaspoon rum or

brandy extract for recipes in which liquid amount is not crucial. Add

water, white grape juice, or apple juice, if necessary to get the

specified amount of liquid.


  • For 2 tablespoons amaretto, substitute 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon almond

extract.


  • For 2 tablespoons sherry or bourbon, substitute 1 to 2 teaspoons

vanilla extract.


  • For 2 tablespoons Kahlua, coffee, or chocolate-flavored liqueur,

substitute 1/2 to 1 teaspoon chocolate extract plus 1/2 to 1 teaspoon

instant coffee in 2 tablespoons water.


  • For a 1/4 cup or more port wine, sweet sherry, rum, brandy, or

fruit-flavored liqueur, substitute an equal measure of unsweetened

orange juice or apple juice plus 1 teaspoon of corresponding flavored

extract or vanilla extract.


  • For a 1/4 cup or more white wine, substitute an equal measure of white

grape juice or apple juice.


  • For a 1/4 cup or more red wine, substitute an equal measure of red

grape juice or cranberry juice.


Other substitutions include chicken broth, beef broth, vegetable broth,

clam juice, flavored vinegars, fruit juices, apple cider, and

nonalcoholic wines. If you use a nonalcoholic wine, you may need to add

a tablespoon vinegar (red or white depending on which color wine is

specified) to help cut the sweetness of the fake vino.


Here are some more substitute ingredients for recipes that call for

alcohol:


  • 1 tablespoon sweet sherry substitute 1 tablespoon apple cider.


  • 1 tablespoon dry vermouth 1 tablespoon apple juice.


  • 2 tablespoons sherry or bourbon 1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.


  • 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur 2

tablespoons unsweetened orange juice concentrate.


  • 1/4 cup or more of white wine equal amount of white grape juice.


  • 4 cup or more of red wine equal amount of red grape juice.



When we are grateful for the good we already have, we attract more good into our life. On the other hand, when we are ungrateful, we tend to shut ourselves off from the good we might otherwise experience. ~Sylvia
