But who says alcohol needs to be poured into a glass? These alcoholic food recipes will get you buzzed and keep you fed all at the same time. Here’s how to put some inebriation in your nibbles!
1. Alcoholic Fruit Loop Bars
If you’re at a shindig that’s still in full swing in the wee small hours of the morning, chances are you’re gonna want some breakfast soon. We suggest Alcoholic Fruit Loop Bars. These colorful squares of chewy drunkenness are made of sweet Froot Loops cereal mixed with mini marshmallows, butter, Malibu Rum (hello!), sprinkles and white chocolate chips.
2. Jack and Coke Cupcakes
Not even sure what to say about this alcoholic food. #SelfExplanatory. #Translation: Perfect. Figure it out.
3. Beer Infused Ice Cream
Introduced to the market by three young guys from Connecticut (internal question: are they hot?), beer-flavored ice cream is an amazing alcoholic food that puts a whole new twist on #SundaeFunDay. Not so sure about the DUI factor though, so lawyer up first before that triple scoop. #Obvious. Upon further investigation, it looks like these three guys have shut down shop (NO!!!), but put those worries aside because we found a homemade version!
4. Alcohol Filled Chocolates
I must admit, whiskey is not my go-to drink. Thank God there are plenty of other bottles on the shelf beckoning me with their liquidy goodness. Filled with vodka, whiskey or rum (for cowards!), these rockin’ chocolate-shots are perfect for bachelorette parties or any other kick-backs where broads wanna double down on the alcohol and sweets.
5. K-Cup Cocktails, The Lazy Bartender’s Best-Dream-Ever
Never heard of K-Cup Cocktails? Me neither, so here’s the fancy explanation. Whip out your Keurig and sub booze for water. Seems like the best way ever to sneak a sip in at even the most uptight of office dreariness. Not a coffee drinker? No problem. There are some sassy recipes that use tea and hot cocoa if one buzz is enough without the caffeine.
6. Drunken Gummy Bears
Stop! Don’t tell PETA, but can we please fill these snugglers full of some kind of high-proof vodka situation? Why, yes we can! They’re colorful to boot! Check out the made from scratch Fancy-Pants Version from Bon Appetit and let us know which you like better.
7. Booze-Infused Melon Balls
Boozy Melon Balls are some of the most refreshing alcoholic foods you’ll find. Same theory as the gummies. Make yourself some balls, then let ‘em take a bath in liquor. They’ll give you one of those “I’m SOOOO happy I’m being healthy moments!”
8. Hard Cider Apple Pie
Nothing says “home” like apple pie… except maybe 7% alcohol Hard Cider Apple Pie because that’s exactly where you’ll stay for the next 3-hours, too wasted to go any place else! Scratch crust? There’s no time for that when you’re trying to get lit! Get yourself a pre-made and use any kind of hard apple cider you can find. This recipe will turn those plain Pippins into rockstars. #Snap
9. Alcoholic Pizza
At Salvatore’s in Boston, they’ll card you if you order the Vignola Cherry Pizza (this might just be me drumming up drama, #sorrynotsorry). It’s topped with a bunch of goodies including prosciutto, Gorgonzola, and fresh mozzarella. It also has… (wait for it!) cherries soaked in raspberry vodka. Send me a slice and I’ll show you one happy Goddess.
10. Drunken Milkshake
If you’ve never considered adding vodka or gin to your milkshake, I have to ask, “WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU??!!” Boozy milkshakes are all the rage right now. Not far from the #Sunset Strip, Nighthawk Breakfast Bar serves up spiked cereal milk and boozy ice cream floats at their brunch-for-dinner night spot. But you can make them at home like the soda fountain fox you are and serve ‘em in milk bottles or mason jars so they look super cute. Here are some recipes to get you started.
11. Cookies N’ Cream Pudding Shots
It’s blender time! Making pudding shots is simple. Add milk, pudding mix, and your favorite liqueur or vodka, then… PUSH THE BUTTON! Hell, you can already be blissfully buzzed and do this! Then pour the cold, creamy deliciousity into shot glasses, add a little whip, maybe a garnish… and shoot away!
12. No-Bake Chocolate Kahlúa Balls
No-bake chocolate truffle balls are the perfect party dessert for a multitude of reasons (like they’re small and bite-sized), but mainly because the alcohol in them creates rich, transcendent flavors. Sounds sophisticated, huh?! There’s no baking involved with this alcoholic food. Just blend the ingredients together, roll ‘em in a ball, add some sprinkles or nuts to dress them up for a night out on the town, and put them in mini-cupcake papers or on a serving platter.
13. Spiked Donuts
It’s a whole new way to look at dunkin’donuts! The best part is you don’t have to dunk them in coffee or moonshine or anything cuz the alcohol is already inside the little round wonder! Flavors abound. Oh, and they really are on a spike. Or a stick. Or whatever you want to call it. It doesn’t matter. They’re good! Here’s a recipe that should channel your inner Homer Simpson.
14. Boozy Margarita Lime Cake
This is what you do when you buy a giant bag of limes to make margaritas and then decide you don’t want to deal with the stupid blender cuz it’ll wake the baby! But you’ve got all that citrus now and tequila to boot. You can’t let it go to waste, soooo you make a Boozy Margarita Lime Cake instead. And it’s heaven and buzz-inducing and you didn’t even have to salt the rim. HashtagThankGoodness.
