We just kicked off Cocktail Week, but we're going to take a little detour into desserts. Boozy desserts. Some of our favorite uses for liquor involve baked goods and other treats; here's a look back at some of our own recipes! • 1. Sticky Spiked Double-Apple Cake with a Brown Sugar-Brandy Sauce - This amazing cake packs quite a wallop! • 2. Boozy Campari Citrus Pops - With the refreshing bite of Campari! • 3. Spicy Boozy Mousse - With dark rum or cognac. • 4. Plum Sorbet with Lemon Verbena Cream - Spiked with plummy, jammy kirsch. • 5. Spiked Lemon Ginger Sorbet - Spiked with whiskey for a smoother sorbet. • 6. Chocolate Bourbon Truffle-Turtle Tart - Just a hint of bourbon... • 7. Nutty Chocolate Tart - A nutty tart served with a healthy dollop of boozed-up whipped cream. • 8. Prunes Stewed in Port Wine - Don't let their humble appearance fool you; these are amazing. • 9. Spiced Red Wine Syrup - Tremendous treat over ice cream, and • 10. Honey and Spice Poached Pears - These are poached in just water and spices, but try it with white wine or muscat instead. • 11. Guinness-Milk Chocolate Ice Cream - Beer in ice cream? Oh yes. What are your favorite dessert recipes involving booze? (Images: See linked posts for full image credits)
