Dessert cocktails used to have a bad rap – the idea of overly sweet and, therefore, unbalanced concoctions would strike fear in the hearts of self-respecting bartenders. However, times have changed and the days of mudslides and brown cows are long gone. Today, dessert cocktails can actually surprise you and many restaurants are starting to replace their dessert menus with cocktail lists.
The fact is, there really is no better way to end a meal than with something sweet. And if you can get a bit buzzed at the same time, it’s a win-win. So the next time you’re out for dinner and ready for dessert, put down the fork or spoon and raise a glass instead. Check out our favorite dessert cocktails that will have you thinking outside of the plate.
