For Adults Only: Booze-infused indulgences


Do you suffer from decision paralysis when it comes to deciding between an after-dinner drink or a dessert? Do you balance between overindulging and allowing yourself a treat? It’s OK to like booze, and it’s OK to like dessert, so why not like them both together?
Several Kansas City restaurants are helping you with this head-scratching dilemma by offering liquor-infused desserts. These desserts won’t get you tipsy, but they do pack a punch. Here are five sweet treats that have a boozy kick for the cost of a cocktail.
Oishii Grand Marnier Brownie at Snow & Company
Known for their artful frozen cocktails, SnoCo (as the locals call it) has partnered with Kansas City-based Oishii Studio Sweets for a menu-pleasing organic brownie made with Grand Marnier. The menu says “You’ll be addicted at your first bite!” and they are right. The citrus flavor of the orange liqueur permeates through a delicious chocolate brownie. This dessert is upscale and rich, indeed. 
Snow & Company, 1815 Wyandotte St., Kansas City, Mo.

Espresso Molten Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce, Turkish Coffee and Kahlua Ice Cream at Tannin Wine Bar
Tannin is warm and welcoming, just like the espresso molten chocolate cake on their dessert menu. This alcohol-infused dessert makes the perfect summer nightcap or a treat while relaxing on their patio with friends or your special someone. Pair this with the top-notch service Tannin is known for, and you’ll have an irresistible experience with a little kick thanks to the booze-laden Kahula ice cream.

Meyer Lemon Pot de Crème with Blackberry Limoncello at Westport Café and Bar
Limoncello is an ingredient you would usually find in a cocktail at Westport Café and Bar, not a dessert. However, WCB hit it out of the park with their creamy lemon-infused custard topped with a limoncello-spiked blackberry sauce that makes each bite pop. It is the right amount of lemon without being overpowering, and is quaint and charming to your palate, just like the atmosphere at WCB.

Ice Cream Sandwich at McCoy’s Public House
Mom would never let you order this, but maybe your crazy uncle would. McCoy’s twist on this childhood classic is sure to bring you back to the carefree days of summer. Homemade peanut butter ice cream with an oatmeal-stout chocolate brownie and a side of hot fudge for dipping takes you to back to a simpler time. Your only decision: to share or not to share?
McCoy’s Public House, 4057 Pennsylvania Ave., Kansas City, Mo.

Flourless Chocolate Torte with Cognac-Braised Cherries at Pierpont’s
Simply spectacular. A decadent chocolate-intense cake with mellow, sweet notes of cherries laced with cognac. Often voted the best place to take out-of-town guests, Pierpoint’s boasts desserts worth showing off. Pierpont’s also packs a menu full of “Decadent Temptations” and “Chocolate Cocktails” that will satisfy the sweetest tooth in Kansas City.
Pierpont’s, 30 W. Pershing Road, Kansas City, Mo.

All of these recipes recipes must be yummy, but isn't the alcohol and sweets combination a bit too dangerous? I know I would risk my weight by giving them a try. Considering my past experience with smoking addiction, perhaps I should stay away from them though. I used to smoke on a daily basis and even though I tried constantly to give it up, I couldn't do it until I had a vaping experience and got myself an electronic cigarette.

I was looking at some of your posts on this website and I conceive this web site is really instructive! Keep putting up..
