Top Boozy Dessert Recipes

Who needs shot glasses when you can bake your liquor into drool-worthy desserts?! Here are some of our favorite boozy dessert recipes.

While we normally like to finish off our desserts with a nice cocktail in hand, infusing your dessert recipes with your favorite hard alcohol or liqueur is a great way to add flavor as well as an alcoholic buzz to your dish.

You can add alcohol to pretty much any dessert recipe - the trick is pairing the right liquor with the flavor you want to achieve. We've put together a few of our favorite boozy dessert recipes to help spike your dessert table!


  • The only thing better than a drunken dessert, is a drunken dessert on a stick. You're going to want to make a second, maybe even third batch of these Drunken Cupcake Pops . Guinness, Bailey's, and frosting? Count us in!

  • Boozy popsicles are a refreshing dessert to enjoy poolside - or if you're like us, whenever you've got a batch in the freezer! We're loving these recipes from Coryanne Ettiene for their easy preparation and fresh flavor.

  • Chocolate, beer, and cupcakes.. these are a few of our favorite things! Now, we've taken these favorites and packed them into one beer-filled dessert. Your taste buds never stood a chance against these Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes .

  • Tiramisu for the person who hates to share their sweets (that includes us!). Add a dash of Kahlua and you have an Individual Tiramisu that packs a punch of booze of coffee.

  • Cookies and wine, how sweet and chic! These cookies are equal parts cute, tasty, and booze infused. You'll be surprised when you take a bite of these Sherry Meringue Cookies - crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside.

  • For an elegant, yet boozy treat, add a glass of vino! Don't just pour it in a glass either, pour it in the batter of these irresistible Red Wine Cupcakes .

  • Berries, schnapps, and a whole lotta sugar, these Blackberry Schnapps Crumble Bars are as tasty as they are sweet. Saying no to them is not an option.

  • Since Flan is a traditionally Spanish dessert, it's no surprise this Margarita Flan is spiked with tequila! These are sure to instantly turn any plain old party into a wild fiesta.

  • What has Tequila, Triple Sec, and a whole lotta sweetness? These fiesta worthy Tequila Lime Cookie Shots are a must for any booze infused party. Try not to sample too much of the ingredients while baking!

  • Blondies are a dessert classic that you can pretty much never go wrong with. Spike them with bourbon and you have a recipe for greatness (or disaster, whichever way you look at it). Brazilian Bourbon Blondies are sure to become your new favorite sweet treat .

  • Chocolate, cheesecake, and liqueur, oh my! Rich and creamy, this spiked sweet treat is a must for fans of chocolate. Whip up this easy chocolate cheesecake and be sure to send us samples!

  • Coconut topped dessert recipes are always yummy, but spiked with rum and pineapple? You've got yourself a pina colada treat everyone will love. Light, airy and full of your favorite summer sip's flavors, it's perfect for when you want to be on vacation, but just can't be.
