Boozy Baking Round-up
I don’t know about anywhere else, but here in Boston everyone is well stocked on alcohol for this time of distancing. And anyone who knows me know’s I’m a fan of boozy baking. So while you’re home with lots of alcohol, I have rounded up my boozy recipes here for you to add some extra delicious fun to your next virtual happy hour! I happy to have about 30 boozy recipes on my blog, so I guess you can see my priorities! I limited this post to my favorites, but at the bottom of the post, I’ve provided links to all the others in case any of them excite you!
So get to boozy baking and let me know how it goes! Have a booze on hand and want a recipe for it? Let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can come up with!
I just posted these earlier this month but they are too good not to share again. The small touch of black currant from the Crème de Cassis adds the perfect touch of sweetness to the flavor of the Guinness!
I made these for the Super Bowl a couple years back so they’re shaped like footballs in the post, but now is just as good a time as any to booze up your brownies, and stout beer make the perfect addition! I used a local coffee milk stout, but there are so many flavors of stout beer that would go well with the fudgy deliciousness of the brownies, so pick your favorite and give it a try!
Again, these were made for a Super Bowl a few years back, so please ignore the Patriots’ logo (and the poor quality photos). But I promise you the flavor of this lager balances perfectly with the sweetness of the cupcakes for a delicious, boozy treat!
I know Purim has passed, but this Sangria filling is too good to limit to once a year!
Red wine and chocolate are two of the greatest flavors to exist so why not combine them for the most epic flavor? And when you turn it into a crème brulee, one of the best desserts there is, you can’t go wrong!
I had no idea how easy it could be to make a lava cake. And what’s better than an ooey gooey chocolate cake, flowing with chocolate and red wine lava?!
When it comes to different types of desserts, cake is not near the top of my list. To me, cake is just a vehicle to get sweet, delicious icing into my mouth. But this cake is different. This cake has it’s own awesome flavor with a mouthwatering jam, and a sweet rosé frosting. Does boozy baking make everything better? Maybe. But this cake definitely does.
I mean, honestly the name alone should tell you how delicious these are. A strawberry and champagne cupcake, with a strawberry and champagne filling, and a Nutella frosting. This takes chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne to another level.
Bourbon (I split this out from liquor, because I have so many bourbon recipes. I guess my Kentucky roots shine in my boozy baking recipes!):
I learned about Milk Punch when I was doing some research on Mardis Gras foods, and I cannot wait until I can travel to NOLA to try the real thing. But until then, these cheesecakes will do the trick!
This is hands down the best pie I’ve ever had. If you’ve ever had a legitimate Derby Pie from Kern’s Kitchen, this is the closest I’ve ever tasted to a recreation (of course, with a kick of bourbon). I hate working with molasses because I can’t stand the smell, but I would do it every day for a bite of this gloriously delicious pie.
This recipe has been a big hit at dinner parties and Thanksgivings, and why is pumpkin seasonal? You can buy pumpkin year-round in the baking section (just make sure it’s pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling), so no need to wait until fall for this delish treat!
This pie is a take on my mom’s sweet potato casserole that she makes for Thanksgiving. It includes a kick of sweet and delicious cherry bourbon that blends perfectly with the sweet potato and brown sugar flavors. And the mini marshmallows on top take it to the next level.
This recipe was inspired by a friend of mine’s birthday, whose favorite drink is bourbon peach sweet tea. So I recreated it in cupcake form many, many years ago, and it still stands as one of my absolute favorite recipes. They’re such perfect summer flavors, but we’re all trapped inside so who knows what season it is outside anyway!
You’ll never need another citrus pie again once you try this . This has the perfect tang of citrus with a delicious kick of tequila and a light, fluffy, beautiful meringue on top!
These are called St. Patrick’s Day Treats because the holiday gave me the inspiration for this recipe, but like these other recipes, they are not limited to one time a year. These are essentially Rice Krispie Treats with Lucky Charms instead of Rice Krispies, using Baileys marshmallows. Pretty amazing, right?!
I hope at least one thing, if not a few, on this list piqued your interest, but if not, the rest of my boozy recipes are linked below. Let me know if you make a recipe!!
