These chocolates are Irish in their innards, and we love that
Instead of just drinking whiskey on St. Patrick’s Day, Burdick Chocolate has created Limited Edition Irish Whiskey Chocolates. These chocolate bonbons are made with an Irish touch and only the best whiskeys. This tops our list of Irish whiskey desserts because you can pop just one if you’re being “good” about your whiskey and calories intake.
Knappogue Castle Single Malt Irish Whiskey and Clontarf Irish Whiskey
Obviously this ultra creamy addition to the list of best Irish whiskey desserts can be found in Brooklyn, because where else on Earth (Ireland aside) would you find such a dramatically hipster rendition of whiskey and sugar? Nowhere, and that’s science. You’ll be pleased to know this one is worth a car, boat, plane, train, or vintage Schwinn bike over to OddFellows Ice Cream Co. in Williamsburg, though. Available through the month of March for $13; Sam Mason and his team at the ice cream shop have whipped up a trio of boozy scoops with three unique Irish whiskey expressions.
-Dead Rabbit Irish Coffee ice cream made with Clontarf Irish Whiskey
-Knappogue Castle 14 Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey ice cream with sherry syrup
-Burnt Marshmallow ice cream with a Knappogue Castle 12 Year wash

Irish lattes are having a big moment, too
If you’re not a cake and ice cream kind of human (shocking, and we can’t make sense of this), there’s good news — Irish lattes are having a major moment, and they’re a step up from the regular Irish coffees our mothers used to drink. There’s something about a liquid addition to the best Irish whiskey desserts that’s sort of satisfying, right?
Also, Irish whiskey cakes seem to be picking up steam
Can we just look at this cake trend currently happening in Russia? Russia, the land of harsh rule and vodka, is now trying to take a page out of the Irish book and get down with whiskey. Who can blame ’em? Not us, that’s for sure, which is why we’re proud to announce the trend of Irish whiskey cakes taking over the Russian birthday party scene. By the way, the legal drinking age is lower over there, which is probably why a lot of these cakes look, dare we say, youthful.
