brings out the flavor and aroma of

your favorite sauces

Perhaps the most common use of vodka in cooking is to incorporate it into your sauces, especially pasta sauces. But why? Vodka emphasizes the flavors already contained in the sauce without adding its own. Other types of alcohol, such as rum and white wine, add their own distinct flavors to foods, but vodka increases the flavors of your food. This is especially true for tomato-based sauces.

Vodka also helps increase the aroma of your food, as long as you cook 95% of the alcohol content. Increasing the aroma of your sauce contributes to the flavor of your dish, and you’ll be able to know right away when you’re eating a delicious penne vodka or rigatoni. The most effective way to cook the alcohol in vodka is to mix it in its sauce and let it simmer for two hours.

In addition

to pasta, vodka sauce also pairs perfectly with chicken, shrimp

and even pizza. Vodka

can help meats absorb their marinade and become even tastier Adding

vodka to your favorite sauces produces tasty results, but sometimes we’re in the mood for something smokier and even tastier. When that craving hits, try using vodka in your marinade for your steak, chicken, fish, and more. The acidity of vodka will help the meat absorb the flavors of your marinade, leaving your favorite dishes even more delicious.

When marinating

your food with vodka or other acidic substances, be sure not to marinate too much. Some foods such as steak, fish, and shrimp can begin to lose texture and color if marinated too long. For steak, chicken, fish, or whatever you’re marinating, be sure to look for how long it takes to produce the tastiest results.

Vodka can make your cakes

more flaky

and delicious

Once you’re done eating your delicious main course, try adding vodka to your cakes and baked goods. Adding vodka to your dough makes your baked product flaker and even more delicious.

But what is it about vodka that will make your dessert more flaky? Adding vodka instead of water to your dough prevents gluten from forming during the baking process, leaving your tasty flaky and delicious treat instead of hard and chewy. Adding vodka to your baking is especially important when making cake crusts. Simply add 1/4 cup of vodka, and you’re on your way to a tasty cake with a perfect, crumbly texture.
