Party Approved Boozy Drink and Dessert Recipes

These delicious boozy drinks and boozy desserts are guaranteed to get the party started and to keep the conversations flowing.

Collage of desserts and drinks containing alcoholJohn and I are picky when it comes to what we eat. It doesn’t have to be fancy but it has to be delicious. We feel the same way about our cocktails. We know how we want our favorite cocktails to taste so when we order one and it’s not very good, it’s so disappointing. When we have a party or entertain, we want our guests to know that we appreciate that they took the time to join us. Serving them the best drinks is a must and alcohol-inspired desserts will do that! If you want to throw in a few appetizers, here are some of the BEST Easy and Delicious Appetizers.

Decadent alcoholic cocktails and sweets are the same things in some cases. Planning a party or entertaining can be hard enough.

Love desserts with booze - it really adds such great flavor. I'm still hoping to make your Bailey's mini cheesecakes -as I have a bottle waiting to be used - maybe for New Years. As time goes by I seem to enjoy "special adult drinks" as I normally don't drink simple cocktails such as gin and tonic or rum and coke.

Me too, Judi! They sure seem to go down pretty well. We may do something like that for New Years too. We've done so much entertaining that we are laying low and keeping it simple this year. Will you be entertaining?
