By

Here’s to those who like their coffee milky and sweet, who nuke their ice cream to make a sugary soup, who still drink chocolate milk with dinner even though they’re old enough to have a 401K. If you count yourself among this sweet-seeking sect, then you’re in luck, because we have your new favorite cocktails. These indulgent dessert drinks will satisfy your sweet tooth, with a bonus boozy kick. Here, the nine creamiest drinks the cocktail world has to offer.

This New Orleans classic is liquified mint chocolate chip ice cream. For a nutty, pink-hued take on the after-dinner stalwart, swap out crème de menthe for crème de noyaux, and you’ll have the Pink Squirrel.

The Essentials

white crème de cacao
green crème de menthe
heavy cream

This cocktail originally debuted with gin as the main spirit instead of brandy. But in the 1920s, the spirit switch was made and the creamy cocktail’s popularity skyrocketed, proving that Cognac was a much better match for dark crème de cacao.

The Essentials

Cognac
dark crème de cacao
heavy cream

The gin-based Ace is one of the most underrated creamy cocktails. Perfect for brunch, the sweet-tart cocktail mixes gin with cream, egg white, lemon juice and grenadine (make your own from scratch and you’ll be rewarded with a truly dreamy drink).

The Essentials

gin
grenadine
cream

Compared to some of the more decadent creamy cocktails out there, the White Russian can appear restrained. But what it lacks in wow-factor, it makes up for in flavor and simplicity. The stirred mix of vodka, coffee liqueur and cream is the most socially acceptable way to drink your dessert.

The Essentials

Vodka
Coffee Liqueur
Heavy Cream

Everyone agreed that the White Russian was pretty perfect, but then someone looked at the freezer and got greedy. The Mudslide blends vanilla ice cream with vodka, coffee liqueur and Irish cream. Serve it in a big Hurricane glass glazed in chocolate syrup and revel in sweet adulthood.

The Essentials

vodka
Kahlua
vanilla ice cream

Next time you’re indulging in late-night milk and cookies, take it to the next level with Milk Punch. While the rich mix of bourbon, dark rum, vanilla and milk has been around since pre-Colonial days, it’s hard to believe this cocktail wasn’t invented with a batch of chocolate chip cookies in mind.

The Essentials

Bourbon
Dark Rum
Milk

How do you make the banana split, the one true king of all ice cream sundaes, even better? You add booze to it. The Dirty Banana doubles down on the fruit by blending aged rum, coffee liqueur and cream with both banana liqueur and a whole banana. Add some chocolate syrup and a cherry on top for the ultimate guilty pleasure.

The Essentials

aged rum
Kahlúa
banana liqueur

We feel personally victimized by whoever named this drink, forever preventing us from ordering an otherwise delightful treat in polite company. But in the privacy of our own homes, the blended mix of gin, frozen strawberries, pink lemonade and ice cream hits the spot.

The Essentials

Gin
Frozen Pink Lemonade
Frozen Strawberries

For all those who complain that Eggnog is too heavy, too sweet or too much work, we give you Coquito. This traditional Puerto Rican Eggnog swaps out eggs for coconut cream and three different types of milk. Chuck it all into a blender with spiced rum, dark rum and baking spices, and you’ve got tres leches cake in a glass.

The Essentials

evaporated milk
coconut milk
Dark Rum
