When Jane's Sweet Buns--known for their alcoholic cinnamon buns--closed a few weeks ago, we were concerned where to get sweet treats with a buzz. We set out on a mission to find some other delicious desserts that might make us a little tipsy after a meal.
Prohibition Bakery: Though they don't have a storefront anymore, Prohibition is still rolling out mini cupcakes with spirit-filled centers. We tried the chocolate bacon beer, strawberry daiquiri, and Bee's Knees--a mixture of lemon, gin, orange and bee pollen. They sell one for $2 or three for $5. The Bee's Knees has the most booze for your buck, but the alcohol is obvious in all of the two-bite confections. Hester St. Fair every Saturday, 646-454-9970
