Alcoholic Substitutions

If you're like me you don't have a wide array of alcohol sitting around the house! LOL. So I thought that this list of substitutions would be a good thing to post.

  • For 2 TBS Amaretto, substitute 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • For 2 TBS of sherry or bourbon, substitute 1 to 2 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • For 2 TBS Kahlua, coffee, or chocolate-flavored liqueur, substitute 1/2 to 1 tsp chocolate extract plus 1/2 to 1 tsp instant coffee in 2 TBS water.
  • For 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 of red wine, substitute and equal amount of red grape juice or cranberry juice.

Have a blessed day!


  1. Sweet! Thank you for posting this, Kim! :D I sometimes wonder besides apple juice what to use. This is extremely helpful!

  2. Wait, don't extracts contain alcohol?? LOL - couldn't resist my friend!

    Seriously, this is an excellent substitution list! It's totally not worth it to buy a huge bottle of alcohol when you only need a bit in a recipe.


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
