'boozy dessert' on Serious Eats
In this recipe from Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream Desserts, a super-sweet custard is stirred into a white whiskey-flavored ice cream base and beefed up with salty, toasted pecans.
Bananas are baked in a caramelized sweet brown sugar sauce and topped with bourbon and a crunchy walnut streusel.
Mmm, fudge. A hit of Irish cream liqueur in the base and the topping makes these squares a very boozy treat indeed. Dark and white chocolate are swirled together to make the base, their richness interrupted only by chopped nuts of your choice.
Some boozy sweets don't really taste like booze. That's not the case with these cookies, which marry the flavors of brown butter, pecans, and bourbon.
Pears, sweet-tart Riesling, and spicy ginger come together in a sorbet that's ripe and juicy with a clean, refreshing heat.

This date cake is big on vanilla flavor (and booze, so be careful when serving before noon.)
Raisins are soaked in dark rum for up to 2 days and are churned into a base that seems fairly bland, with faint accents of brown sugar and cinnamon. After setting up for a full 24 hours, though, the rum flavor leaches into the ice cream itself and the bite of pure rum in the raisins mellows out considerably.
This boozy peach pie tastes even better the second day after the bourbon, ginger and peach have had a chance to meld together.
