Top Ten Boozy Desserts in Miami
Dynamic duos in desserts take many forms: pie à la mode, chocolate and peanut butter, and our favorite, alcohol in sweet treats. The bookends of the meal -- the beverage and the closer -- need some fusing, showcasing, and devouring.
Carina Ost Chocolate dipped and spiked.
For a list so sweet and spiked it goes straight to your head (and your cavities), we present Miami's ten best boozy desserts. Caution: This list might contain enough simultaneous pleasure to melt your listicle.
10. Drunken Cupcake at Sweetcakes Edibles
Carina Ost This cupcake is drunk.
The drunken cupcake of the day is a lot like Drunk Uncle: While entertaining and enjoyable, it doesn't fit quite in among the other more conservative relatives. This precious pink cupcake looks innocent enough, but don't let the raspberry frosting fool you -- this cupcake contains a strong kick of vodka. Alcohol, often a social lubricant, also moistens the average cupcake. Look for other boozed-up flavors such as bananas and cream mojito and Kahlúa raspberry chai.
9. Spiked Sorbet at Serendipity Yogurt Café
Carina Ost Pear riesling sorbet
A kosher frozen-yogurt shop may not initially scream dessert to get you buzzed. However, Serendipity Yogurt Café in Surfside offers an array of spiked sorbets. Our current favorite is the pear Riesling, so delicate and refined. Enjoy the gentle graininess of the pear and the sweetness of the wine against the backdrop of an icy treat.
