There are two things everyone wants after a hearty, belt-loosening meal: a sweet dessert and a stiff drink. Though many bars and restaurants have tried to satisfy both post-dinner desires in one sip, only a few have succeeded in creating that perfect denouement of a drink.
We’re not talking about your basic Mudslide or Irish Coffee—not that there’s anything wrong with either of those classics. We’re talking about out-of-the-box, original nightcaps that fulfill both your wildest dessert and drink cravings. After extensive research—the lengths we go to for you, dear reader—we found three incredible cocktails from three talented New York City bartenders that fit the bill.
Forget attempting crème brûlée or stopping at Carvel to pick up a Fudgie the Whale for your next dinner party. Make these decadent dessert cocktail recipes instead.
