Have Your Cake and Drink It Too

Etsy – the province of hand-appliqued chihuahua hats and custom-knitted plant holders – may not be the first place you’d think of heading for a boozy treat, but that’s the platform chosen by Lush Confections, an independent dessert shop based in Tampa, FL. Each and every confection offered here features alcohol, combined with chocolate and sugar in decadent and delicious-sounding ways.

Irish Car Bomb truffles present a sweet take on Left Hand Milk Stout, Jameson and Irish cream. The Sexual Chocolate variety features a trio of aphrodisiacs: dark cocoa, pomegrante (in liqueur form) and Champagne. Truffles are sold in batches of 12 for $25, plus shipping, and the selection varies daily.

On Facebook, Lush Confections teases of other offerings, such as lemon-amaretto cheesecake, muffins made with apples soaked in Sailor Jerry Rum and something made with Makers-Mark-infused bacon, most destined for local cafes in the Tampa vicinity. But keep watch on the Etsy shop, because these items could land there anytime, ready to ship throughout the country. Whatever you order, be sure it will proudly rep the company slogan, “Have your cake and drink it, too!
