No Tricks! Six St. Louis Halloween Treats That Are For Adults Only

Fall is in the air, pumpkin and candy are everywhere and Halloween costumes are being prepared. Sure, that’s kids’ stuff, but sometimes it’s also fun for adults to enjoy some grown-up food and drinks suited for the season. From handmade pasta to decadent desserts and cocktails, here are six adults-only treats to satiate your boozy Halloween fix this fall.

1/ Your favorite afternoon snack as a kid receives a grown-up twist with Sub Zero Vodka Bar’s Oreo Cookie cocktail. The dessert drink is made with Skyy Infusions vanilla vodka, Godiva white chocolate and dark chocolate liqueurs, shaken with crispy Oreos to finish. 308 N. Euclid Ave., Central West End

2/ Not feeling the sweet tooth? Go to The Preston at Chase Park Plaza and find a colorful plate of handmade agnolotti with carrot and goat cheese filling, carrot and Grand Marnier sauce and adobo grilled carrots. The dish is garnished with Marcona almonds, port reduction and carrot greens. 212 N. Kingshighway Blvd., Central West End

3/ It may be fall, but a trip to Clementine’s Naughty and Nice Creamery will be worth the chill in the air. The microcreamery maintains the full alcohol content in its ice cream with flavors like 4 Hands Brewing Co. Chocolate Milk Stout or the classic Moscow Mule. 1637 S. 18th St., Lafayette Square

4/ At Gamlin Whiskey House, get your drink on all the way to the last course with a boozy-drenched dessert like the bourbon peach turnover. Expect a warm, rich bite with a kick of Gamlin’s top-of-the-line whiskeys to make a great finale to your meal. 236 N. Euclid Ave., Central West End

5/ For a comforting dessert after your Italian meal from Randolfi’s, consider the chocolate and pear tart. A part of the new fall menu, the cocoa and fruit meld together nicely with a scoop of cream cheese gelato and pear cordial to top it off. 6665 Delmar Blvd., University City

6/ A mix of sweet and salty, be sure to save room for bread pudding at The Libertine. The dish that could easily be a meal of its own features banana-bacon bread, peanut butter custard, whiskey bacon and peanut butter-caramel ice cream. 7927 Forsyth, Clayton
