Unfortunately, many of us have reached that golden age when going door to door with an empty pillowcase on Halloween is no longer cute – let alone acceptable. It’s time to embrace a new method to trick-or-treating that combines your two favorite activities: bingeing on booze and scarfing down sugar. As long as you have internet access and a feasible credit card (the one that’s not maxed out), trick-or-treat your way through the internet with alcohol-infused desserts that’ll kick that sweet tooth with adulthood savvy.
An amalgamation of Crumbs and your neighborhood liquor store, Lower East Side’s Prohibition Bakery pops out bite-sized cupcakes infused with a dash of liquid courage. The Saucy Pumpkin is one of this year’s fall flavors baked with pumpkin, sage, chocolate, and Oktoberfest. Although pumpkin is not available for shipping, there are plenty of other note-worthy flavors you can shamelessly stuff your face with.
Shotwell has ingeniously combined beer, pretzels, and caramel in a single bite. Carefully hand-crafted with Ghost River Brewing’s Golden Ale hailing from Memphis, these feel-good delights will give you a sudden urge to break out a six-pack and embark on a new Netflix marathon. Created with only wholesome ingredients – never high fructose corn syrup – there’s no way you’ll confuse these with the generic stuff.
We found the remedy to your 99 problems: wine ice cream. Blending an award-winning Ruby Port with the decadence of ice cream, Mercer’s has created the “ultimate pairing” you’ve been waiting for. Giving new meaning to the phrase “wining and dining”, we won’t blame you for replacing your old wine openers with a new set of ice cream scoops.
Talk about comfort food, there’s nothing more heart-warming than a slice of Southern-style pecan pie laced with Kentucky Bourbon. Butter and Scotch bakes this slice of heaven (or hell?) with an all-butter crust, organic Texan pecans, and a handful of ginger. You can easily request through email for a taste of good old-fashioned Southern hospitality.
Tipsy Scoop presents the luxury of a personal bartender at the convenience of your fridge. With flavors as exquisitely bizarre as a boozy Willy Wonka factory, get chilled to the bone this Halloween with the limited edition Candy Corn Vodka Martini. Although some of us swear by our friends Ben and Jerry, Tipsy Scoop might be a game changer, especially if you’re looking for that 5 o’clock pick-me-up.
