SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Raise your plate and say "cheers" to the newest idea in cooking and entertaining‑‑booze‑infused treats! Already‑delicious desserts are loaded with extra flavor when you add a hint of spirits to batters, frosting and more. From martinis and daiquiris to grasshoppers and tequila sunrises, you can turn your favorite cocktail into an intoxicatingly delicious treat for your next adult party.
I don't really drink alcoholic beverages, but I don't mind it when they're mixed with desserts.
Spiked Desserts has recipes for both baked treats and frozen goodies. There's a lot of variety when it comes to the liquor used. Right now, I'm eyeing the grasshopper cupcakes. It's mostly creme de menthe, which I like.
A special thumbs up for the food styling, too. It's a little more up-close than I would have liked, but it's still very pretty.
Thanks to NetGalley and Fox Chapel Publishing for the e-ARC. Publication date for Spiked Desserts is on May 1, 2012.
