Commonly Asked Questions

What alcohol goes well with alfredo?

Alfredo goes well with both white and red wine. We suggest that you try this shrimp pasta with vodka sauce recipe with Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Barbera, or Pinot Noir. These wines have flavors that would very much complement the taste of shrimp alfredo.

Can I substitute white wine for vodka in vodka sauce?

You can use white wine as a substitute. However, this wouldn’t be a “vodka sauce” at all. Moreover, the result wouldn’t taste the same, but it still would be delicious.
