This made me LOL.
I use red wine, white wine, rice wine, mirin, sake, white wine vinegar & red wine vinegar in cooking fairly regularly and DS eats what we eat.
I wouldn't serve him desserts with liqueur in them. I basically follow the same rules for him as I do for me in pregnancy when it comes to alcohol (as in, I abstain from alcohol).
If I use wine in cooking, DD gets given it. The amount of wine is usually quite small - I've never used 250mL or anything... always less than that... and then the meal is divided between people anyway... she'd get a very small amount of wine even if none of the alcohol cooked out of it.

I read on another forum that a whole heap of mothers wouldn't let their child eat a cake made with 1tbsp of rum, the cake being divided by 12 children at a party. Yet, they were ok with the use of vanilla essence or extract, or any other essences for that matter.
I think it's very much something for someone to judge on a case by case basis. A very tiny amount I wouldn't care about, but a large quantity that is hardly cooked I probably won't give my children.
I'm not too fussed on the alcohol, more worried about the preservative high DS1 gets so no, I don't cook with alcohol.

(at the mothers on the other forum)
The day I have to monitor the use of vanilla extract in birthday cakes over in the kindy is the day I give up teaching.
