DIY Dessert: The Twinkie Cocktail Recipes You've Always Wanted



ForTheLoveOfTwinkies2We know, we know, you miss Twinkies as much as you miss being able to wear PJs in public, new episodes of The OC, and Christian Slater. But you've come to the right place because we've got the adult Twinkie recipes you never knew you wanted... until now. Thanks to NYC's Upper East Side Go Burger you can enjoy the Twinkie's last hurrah — with alcohol. Yes, we've got four punch-you-in-the-face-with-sugar cocktail milkshake concoctions so you can DIY this decadence. There's a red velvet Twinkie shake with whipped cream-flavored vodka, a tiramisu-themed shake with Kahlua, and yes, even a green "Twinkiebelle" shake with (what else but) Creme de Menthe. Just please, proceed with caution, we heard these things are kind of bad for you.
