Nothing wraps up the perfect meal like a dessert or after dinner cocktail. What if you combined the two? Whether you’re finishing dinner with something sweet or stopping in just for some liquid dessert, we got the scoop on the best dessert cocktails in Jackson.
Gather has a take on a Colorado Bulldog they call the Best Damn Bulldog. The original Colorado Bulldog is a White Russian with a splash of Coke on top. Instead, Gather’s cocktail is vodka, Kahlua, and chocolate cream, topped with the Best Damn Root Beer. Consider this drink to be your adult root beer float.
Glorietta’s dessert cocktail is called Once is Enough, and is a twist on the classic White Russian. It’s a layered cocktail served in a chilled coupe with vodka and Kahlua on the bottom, and Cointreau Cream spooned on the top. They finish it off with an orange twist for garnish. The flavors in this cocktail are delicate and delicious.

Hayden’s Post has recently created three new dessert cocktails. The Swiss Landslide includes Godiva chocolate, Kahlua, and Bailey’s. The Barista Martini features Patron XO Café, Frangelico, and Crème de Cacao. Our favorite is the Crème Brulee Martini. Light, sweet, and toting the familiar flavors of a classic crème brulee dessert, all in a sugar rimmed martini glass. The flavors here come from coconut cream, whipping cream, vodka, Frangelico, and Buttershots. The sugar rim’s crunch adds an additional dimension to the cocktail that is reminiscent of crème brulee’s caramelized sugar topping.
Liberty Burger’s adult milkshakes will cool you down even on the hottest summer days. These milkshakes are combining your favorite dessert flavors with Liberty Burger’s rich and creamy custard. There’s an Orange Julius and Mudslide, as well as The Lebowski, with Patron XO Café and a sprinkle of coffee. The ice cream sandwich flavor, their most popular, is mixed with Oreos and Bailey’s.
