How to Make the Best Boozy Desserts
Booze adds that certain something to any dessert! How could a drop or two of limoncello, cointreau, or tequila not make a dessert even better? Here is a selection of my favorite boozy dessert recipes to make your holiday festive.
I’ve handpicked the ones I love from from a few of the best food bloggers out there – with their permission, of course!
Trifle is a classic English dessert, with layers of pound cake, Creme Anglais, fresh fruit, and whipped cream. This trifle has layers of liqueur soaked poundcake, raspberries and poached pears. (Made with Marsala Wine and Amaretto)
Sweet, fresh strawberries topped with a crispy macaroon crumb topping and sliced almonds make this Strawberry Margarita Crisp the perfect summer dessert. Plus its got the edge on most crisps with the addition of your favorite margarita flavors, tequila and orange liqueur.
The only thing we love more than the aroma of an Easy Fresh Berry Crumble in the oven is a bowl of it sitting in front of us with Orange Cream. The creamy citrus nuance is an exquisite finish, taking this simple dessert over the top. (Made with Grand Marnier)
Step aside banana bread, we have a better way to use those ripe bananas! Toss them into your crockpot with a few simple ingredients (including some banana liquor) and make this warm and wonderful topping. Great on ice cream, pound cake, French toast and more!
This lemon blueberry trifle is a perfect no bake dessert for a hot summer day! The delicious flavours are delivered through adding lashings of Italian Limoncello liqueur to the trifle sponges as well as lemon curd and fresh, juicy blueberries.
