Alcoholic drinks often go best with food, but what you might not think of is an alcoholic drink for dessert. Here are some popular Cocktails Delicious Dinner Drinks.
Cocktails Delicious Dinner Drinks
The White Russian Smoothie
Many people enjoy the White Russian after dinner because the mixture of coffee, liqueur, and milk make it taste like a dessert. However, if you want to switch it up a bit, try making it into a smoothie. To do this, use heavy cream instead of milk, and add some vanilla ice cream.
Recipe: Blend vanilla ice cream, vodka, creme de cocoa, 1/2 cup crushed ice into a blender. Add cinnamon for garnish.
It’s common to enjoy something minty and chocolaty after a delicious meal, so why not turn this treat into a cocktail?
For this drink, you’ll need creme de mint, chocolate syrup, mint leaves, simple syrup, ice, and vodka.
Recipe: Combine 1 oz. creme de menthe, 1 oz. vodka, 1/2 oz. creme de cocoa, ice cubes, and chocolate syrup in a drink shaker. Add cocoa powder and mint leaves as garnish.
Salted Caramel Bourbon Shake
Another great idea for a dessert drink is the Salted Caramel Bourbon Shake. Because bourbon already has hints of honey, caramel, and vanilla, it’s only natural to add salt to the mix for a milkshake-like drink.
Recipe: Blend 2-3 oz. bourbon, 1 oz. creme de caramel, 2 cups vanilla bean ice cream, and 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt. Add whipped cream for garnish and enjoy.
The Coffee Kahlua Frappe
Coffee frappes are a top seller in most gourmet coffee shops, especially when the weather is warm outside. The combination of coffee and ice is a refreshing pick-me-up when the heat is getting you down. To kick this drink up a notch, add Kahlua.
Recipe: Blend in a blender 1.5 oz. Kahlua, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 6 ice cubes, 4 scoops of coffee ice cream, 2/3 cup heavy cream, and 1 oz. of strong coffee. Add a dollop of whipped cream for garnish and enjoy.
Key Lime Pie Margarita
Who doesn’t love a slice of key lime pie after dinner? If you’re a pie lover who also enjoys cocktails, why not combine the two into a drink that’s both sweet and citrusy? To make this drink you’ll need sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and graham cracker crumbs. For the margarita portion, use lime, tequila, and sugar.
Recipe: Combine 3 oz. tequila, 2 oz. sweetened condensed milk, 2 oz. lime juice, 1 oz. creme de coconut 1 tsp. sugar and 4 ice cubes into a shaker and shake. Add graham cracker crumbs around the edge of your glass and pour in the mix.
