No one enjoys a classic cocktail better than us – but why settle for just a cocktail when you can have an alcohol-infused dessert that satisfies your sweet tooth too? Once you try these deliciously boozy concoctions, there’s no going back.
#1: Sticky Toffee Pudding
Well known for their modern European cuisine, The Disgruntled Chef also offers one of the best sweet tooth indulgence next in the list. Their Sticky Toffee Pudding paired with Bourbon Vanilla ice cream will have you return for a second serving among the greenery.

#2: San Dominique
This beauty comes from Mad about Sucre, a French patisserie which places an emphasis on quality ingredients and the substantially reduced levels of sugar that they use in their desserts. What you get, in the case of the San Dominique, is a harmonious blend of flavours from the dark chocolate mousse and rum, as well as added texture from the Brittany crunch and caramelized plantain.

#3: Lychee Martini Cake
At Bloomsbury Bakers, a cafe co-owned by two friends and graduates from the notable Le Cordon Bleu London culinary school, the Lychee Martini cake is a bestseller. Whilst it looks innocuous enough, we hear that the martini soaked lychees within the cake pack quite a punch. You’ve been forewarned – have a second serving at your own risk!

#4: Flambéed Chocolate Molten Lava Cake
You can never go wrong with a dessert involving gooey, rich chocolate – making chocolate lava cake a popular menu item for restaurateurs. Woods by The Wine Company, however, has differentiated their lava cake from the mass of other offerings by doing a version flambéed with Sambuca and Grand Marnier. Chocolate, cake, and liquor? We’re sold.

#5: Cassis Plum
We’ve come to expect nothing but the most innovative and photogenic dishes from 2am:dessertbar – and that’s exactly what you’ll get with the Cassis Plum. This dish, which uses a cassis fruit as a shell, is chock-full of elderflower yoghurt foam, plum liquor, and bamboo shoots. An unexpected combination – and one that those who avoid cloyingly sweet desserts will appreciate.

#6: Snow White In The Blackforest
If you’re dining at The Halia, be sure not to over-order so that you have space for this stunner of a dessert. Cleverly named Snow White in The Blackforest, this dish comprises of fresh red apple sorbet encased in white chocolate, as well as kirsch (fruit brandy) marinated cherries. On the side, you get a slightly salty dark choux branch to balance out the flavours, as well as chocolate crumble, whipped cream, and castor sugar soil.

#7: Flaming Blondie Skillet
The brownie’s lesser-known, but equally tasty cousin takes centrestage at Southern American restaurant The Beast. We’re talking about the Flaming Blondie Skillet, served with a glass of bourbon that ignites a fiery blue flame when poured over the dish. The bourbon flavour is a tad strong, but this helps to balance out the sweetness of the blondie, and creates a satisfyingly smoky aftertaste.
