Now while being pulled over for a vanilla extract DUI is definitely one for the books, it’s no big secret that the baking liquid has a high alcohol content.
Vanilla extract can have as much as 41 per cent alcohol, making it around 70 proof - which puts it in the same league as Smirnoff vodka and Jameson whiskey.
