According to Francesco Lafranconi, dessert cocktails are the next trend in the world of bartending and mixology. Typical standouts in the category include the Espresso Martini and non-alcoholic dessert drinks like the italian affogato. As the trend takes hold, look for more complex variations, such as the Last Wish, that feature complex flavors derived from amaros and liqueurs. There is no better way to cap off a delicious meal!
