2. Orange Spiked Boozy Hot Chocolate
Alcohol infused treats are all about enhancing a recipe, making it even more amazing than before. One such recipe is hot chocolate spiked with some orange liqueur, like Grand Mariner or Cointreau. The liqueur adds some extra warmth to the toasty-warm beverage, as giving it a subtle orange flavour. A perfect drink to warm yourself on those cold winter nights!

3. Guinness Brownies
Besides enhancing a recipe, alcohol-infused treats can also be different and out there, and nothing screams out there than Guinness brownies. You might wrinkle your nose at the thought of beer and brownies mixed together, but because of its dark flavours of coffee and caramalised taste, Guinness actually goes well with chocolate. These brownies are pure decadence that any beer lover will gladly indulge in!
