The 10 best boozy desserts

Add some fun to your dinner party!

Not only do alcohol-laden desserts make one feel slightly more "grown-up", they also add a whole new flavour profile and ensure that the party keeps pumping way after the main course is cleared. (Just be considerate though and check whether all your guests consume alcohol - otherwise you might fall into some awkwardness).

1. Tiramisu - probably one of the most well-known desserts in the world.

2. Chocolate and whisky brownie cake - chocolate + whisky = a winning combination!

3. Rum and raisin truffles - if you're a fan of rum and raisin ice cream then you are going to go mad for these.

4. Red wine poached pears - you can't fault this classic.

5. Amarula panna cotta with rose poached strawberries - a real beauty of a dessert. It can be a little tricky but just read the recipe slowly and carefully.

6. Sticky brandy pudding - show us one person who doesn't love this dessert.

7. Crepes Suzette - another classic that requires some fun flambée-ing action!

8. Champagne cheesecake - bubbly in cheesecake?! Yes please!

9. Ferrero Rocher and hazelnut liqueur ice cream cake - an impressive cake that's best served in Summer.

10. Boozy coffee chocolate puddings - mouthwatering and totally addictive.

And for a bonus boozy dessert that you simply HAVE to make... try our popular Amarula malva pudding. You won't be disappointed.
