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.
