When Pie Gets Drunk ...

... the result is magical. If you enjoy sipping a classic cocktail while simultaneously enjoying something sweet for dessert, then you'll want to take note. Recipe developers in Food Network Kitchen managed to capture the flavor and essence of six classic cocktails in sweet pie form. Bake the pie crusts ahead of time, then fill them up with spiked custard, pudding or ice cream. Cheers to that!

Grasshopper Pie

Chocolate, mint and booze — this super-grown-up pie has all the makings of the classic cocktail that inspired it. Use any leftover chocolate-mint whipped cream to spike hot chocolate.

Margarita Pie

With its boozy lime filling and a tequila-spiked crust, this creamy pie tastes just like the drink. Don't skip the salted lime-wedge garnish!

Dark and Stormy Pie

Rum, ginger and lime are the winning trio in both the drink and this boozy pie. The rum pudding can also be served all by itself in decorative glasses.

Mudslide Pie

The wicked combination of booze (coffee and Irish cream liqueurs), coffee and chocolate is totally irresistible in this cocktail-inspired pie.

Old Fashioned Pie

The potent whiskey cocktail gets a playful makeover in the form of this bourbon-spiked custard pie. You can even make it with rye instead of bourbon if that's your fancy. And be sure to include the retro garnish for a fun finishing touch.

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Pie

This boozy frozen pie has all the makings of the fruity summer drink. Store-bought strawberry sorbet is the perfect way to achieve the texture of finely crushed ice. Creating flavor variations is as simple as switching in a new sorbet flavor.
