Wash down the sliders here (their motto is" little bugers, big taste") with “The Dude,” their homage to The Big Lebowski homage. This "White Russian" milkshake is a stealthy way to get a buzz, and really pulls the meal together, man. Your other alternative: The Big Pink ("a Sangria Slushy that goes down easy").

Dolce Vita Gelato and Espresso Bar in Austin offers a variety of spiked desserts. One of the most intriguing options is the Sorberita. This twist on a classic margarita includes a scoop of any of their fresh fruit sorbets (such as coconut, raspberry, and passion fruit). For those with a chocolate craving, try the Cioccolatini, a concoction of Kahlua, Godiva liqueur, and Stoli Vanilla Vodka. In addition to these treats, Dolce Vita offers a gelato flavor that is inspired by Guiness beer. While the gelato does not contain any alcohol, the creamy flavor of Guiness is combined with chunks of chocolate to create a resemblance to the beer.
