There is a nip in the air, Christmas and New Year revelries are not far away and it is the perfect time to celebrate. There is no calorie counting this time of year and a great way to enjoy is to indulge in some delicious boozy des.serts. Now a sweet treat is always delicious but when you add some liquor to it, it gets even better. We picked some of our favourite alcohol filled desserts across restaurants in Mumbai that we think you will enjoy.
Gulab Nut at The Bombay Canteen
There are many dishes at The Bombay Canteen that will dazzle you but one that is amassed a loyal following is their Gulab Nut. This unusual dessert is essentially an oversized Gulab Jamun drenched in Old Monk Rum served with a scoop of Pista Ice-cream making it the mother of all gulab jamuns. It is a sweet kick but the rum helps cut through the excessive sweetness and it is a big hit perfect for the cooler months.
Baileys Lollipop at Farzi Cafe
Nothing like a shot of Bailey's liquor to warm you up but imagine having it in the form of a lollipop? You do not really need to imagine it, just head to any Farzi Cafe outlet in the city and enjoy 6 of these in one serving. They have got chocolate, Baileys cream and are frozen into little spheres on a stick served rather elaborately like everything else at the restaurant. It is the perfect small boozy dessert that you can even enjoy on the go.

Hot Kahlua Chocolate Souffle at Joss
Soufflés are light and airy, ideal for when you do not want anything too heavy. When you add chocolate and Kahlua it is the perfect dessert and no one does this better than Joss. It is one of their signature desserts but comes Christmas time they make a lot of boozy desserts just as good as this one.

Old Monk(ey)Choco Cake at Monkey Bar
Chocolate is always the most common ingredient when it comes to boozy desserts and at Monkey Bar in Bandra, their Rum infused Old Monk Chocolate Cake is a dessert connoisseur dream. It is garnished with caramel bits, served with a scoop of ice cream and has been made with generous portions of rum. Even if you are skipping a meal and just hanging by the bar, there's no reason you can not enjoy this indulgence.
Beer A Misu at Gateway Taproom
You know just how serious the Gateway Taproom is about their beer when they take a humble coffee based Tiramisu and add their brew to it elevating this popular Italian dessert to a whole new level. There are not many bakers willing to experiment with beer in their dessert but we are so glad they did because it is a winner and possibly the most unusual beer based dessert.
